I deploy the best and latest technology as well as engage professionals in all my projects. The audiovisual business is very personal to me as I am always researching into new, better and innovative ways of service delivery.
I cultivate a healthy working relationship with my clients that creates a better understanding and facilitate meeting their expectations to such an extent that they can leave their brief with me, being rest assured that that the ball will not drop.
I always encourage my client's to form a partnership that is mutually beneficial.
“Reliability and dependability of our service has been our most import success factor. When our clients brief out a job to us, they can go to sleep knowing that we will deliver come rain or shine.”

How did you get into AV production
In 2003, I established my own AV/Multimedia Production company, AVEdge Limited, a cutting edge audio visual service provider, setup to service the events & experiential industry. I also freelance in lecturing and training. Prior to this I worked in a production company Scharf Weisberg (Studio 77) as the Production Manager, one of the members of the IMC group, worked as Client Services Executive in an advertising/PR Agency – Ruyi Communication owned by Soni Irabor before then. Other work experience include holiday jobs I was doing while in university in a mortgage institution, then served in Radio Nigeria Ibadan during my service year. On completion of my service year I made my entry into the entertainment and experiential industry as the Manager of a recording & performing artiste, Blackky, Wired MC, Adewale Ayuba as well as consult for a few other artiste. I have interests in other ventures such as printing & set designs and fabrication.
