This is a new part of the blog where I get to interview young great minds. We live in a world where people do amazing things now instead of sitting down and doing nothing! Anyway permit me to say this, ‘ who did sitting down and do nothing help’, nobody lol.
I’m so amaze when I see talented young minds doing positive things for themselves.
The first to be featured is my wonderful random friend who I got to meet when some funny issues took me down to Nigeria,who turns out to be my best pal;

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY?
The entertainment industry has been one way for a while it’s not fascinating, not versatile, no suprise package, it need to take another dimension, needs rebranding as a whole, I think all entertainers have done great, its not easy entertaining pople , me self don see am (laughing)! so I’m learning from these great minds and recapturing and rebranding it to make it more super exciting that’s why vibrant dynasty is here and that’s what we are all about,
