Pictures are the rave now. And as much as we love seeing these beautiful models who makes both ladies and guys glamorous we're also fascinated by the people who make these pictures beautiful, the photographers. Alot of us don't know the magic that goes on behind the lens and we believe it's just a click of the camera, But then there's more to the click. We don't know this because we haven't found love behind that click (probably we just stick to being in front of it) and appreciate the people who have which is why Today we'll be interviewing a young man who found love behind that click. 

He's the most fun loving and motivated person you will meet. His pictures have a type of magic surrounding it and the way he handles the camera if you didn't feel good before you won't have any doubt that your picture will turn out great. He's a 100level student in Afe Babalola university who is quickly making waves in and around his school. He's quirky, he's funny and working with him is easy as he has a gentle nature, a kind attitude towards everybody and of course the Midas touch with his Rebel Camera. Meet him as he raises to fame and get to know him better from our interview.
