Meet Bruno Ogbe Agbonze 

My name is Bruno Ogbe Agbonze. You can call me Bruno Ogbe which is also My Stage Name (Glim) But not yet popular. 

I am a 200 level student of Computer Science of the University of Benin. I am a Gospel Singer and a Recording Artist. 

 I also dance and do graphics, but I am more into my music. 

I actually did not take it seriously when I was younger. I remember I did not even join choir call when I was in secondary school.  I felt Gospel music was boring at that time. I loved Psquare so much, I still love them. But someone who is now my Role Model (Frank Edwards) came out with a new style of gospel that I love so much. This changed me and I discovered overtime the real mindset and Joy behind Gospel songs. I experienced a great change in my thoughts towards singing, which I know it was the Holy Spirit. 

I remember I was the shy type and had a low self esteem. I used to get scared and to shy to talk among my peers, I do not really know why I was scared then. 

But later, I found myself singing on several stages and different churches and I am always happy doing it even without being paid 😁 but I know that soon, people will be paying (Just Kidding) but it is definitely going to get to that stage. 

My First ever studio session was a song I was featured in. I was called to backup a song, one of the songs of the producer. It did not stop there, he insisted that I take part in one of the songs in his album he was working on (‘What can I give’ is the title), the song came out successful and then he decided to produce a song for me, that how my first song (Uwese) was given birth to. You can listen to  and download Uwese @ iTunes link: itunes.apple.com/us/album/uwese-single/id1076387690

I did not actually write the song, I do not write songs, they just come especially when I am playing the piano. 

I just dropped two songs yesterday. Download I’m a star on my.notjustok.com/track/175927/bruno-ogbe-ft-david-iyke-im-a-star

The journey as not been that easy. The biggest challenge of being a Gospel Artiste is lack of sponsorship and encouragement compared to the secular artistes that easily get endorsements and sponsors. 

 Also, as Gospel artists, we are expected to live as examples. I think people expect so much from us that they forget we are humans too and blood flow through our veins just like them. But it is nice being in the spotlight having Jesus at heart because He will guide you through temptations and trials of the flesh and from pride, because fame easily influences our thoughts. 

Being relevant is success already because not everyone is able to get to this level. Although I am not yet where I want to be, but there is a big difference compared to when I started. I have been able take my songs out for the world to hear, that is great success already. 

I have had opportunity to meet and be known by Frank Edwards, I received a piano from him. I have also performed along side great Artistes like Jude Sax, Chiyere from Project Fame, Phemmy the Alade ogo crooner. 

I love what am doing, although the money is not coming now but I love the fact that I am blessing and I am changing lives with my Gift and I am using it for the Glory of God and His son Jesus. 
My Dreams is to become a Super Star. A wealthy and Famous one actually 😁 , Spreading the gospel through my songs and making impact in the lives of every persons around the world. I am also planning on building up some young and gifted persons through a Platform, which I will soon Review,  it is Called Glim’s Court. I am starting from my church,  all the branches precisely will be part of it. 
In five years I will still be singing, my Passion for music is emphasised, I miss classes because of Programs sometimes though, which I know is bad! But I do not see myself doing anything else than singing. 
Outside music I do Graphics and try to learn new stuff on my computer.

 
The word of God keeps me going.. Because sometimes I get discouraged. My favorite scripture is (1 Thessalonians  5:24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it) this scripture keeps me going and builds my confidence when I am down 
Shout out goes to My Mum, Frank Edwards, My Friends, Fams who have supported and also my dear friend Miracle Chizzy.

Meet Tells Awani 

My name is Intellect Oritselaju Awani, you can call me Tells Awani. 

I studied Political science in Delta state University. I am a model and an actor. 
My journey into modeling started with peeps appreciating my height and fine face. I did not like to workout before, popsy used to tell me then that a time will come when I will love workout and the time eventually came,  I became an addict. 

Someone saw me one certain year and asked me for a shoot. I was reluctant at first until I fared down to the location. I was given a hotel room and paid 30k. It was a wow! I am like ‘just for my photos? I’m getting all of these?’ It really made me look into the modeling world and I saw that there is actually something good in it, so I took it more seriously. 

As per the acting part, a friend asked me to help him because the aunt was directing an interview session. I went there to help with the lightnings and microphone because of my height. It happened that one of the actors was absent and I ended up acting. I played the part well. Then later I was invited for an audition, I went and it was no stress. 

I got my first role, I read the script and made some corrections. I let the directors know I am a critic for naija movies. It happens that whenever I am given a script, I will just read a part of it, smile and tell them what happens next or close to it. Some say I have seen it before, others just envy. 

So far, It has been challenging. I once missed an international  job sometime in 2016 because of international passport issues. Also, most of the job owners are married women and they wanna get laid first. I am never doing that s***

Five years from now, you should meet me having a firm of my own, happily married and putting smiles on  faces. 

I think I have got plans already for the future. It is just to put them to work. 

Shoutout to my late dad. Hey dad,we all miss you.Wish you are here. I took after you dad, I’ve got mad love for Mercedes!

My late dad, mom, siblings+ everything I want is expensive so I need to afford them. This is what keeps me going. 

Meet Halima Bakenne 

My name is Bakenne Halima but you can call me “Lima/Leamar” (just go with the flow).

 A graduate of finance from the prestigious University of Lagos. I dumped my certificate to follow my passion- talking and writing. I am a freelance OAP, writer and voiceover artist. I also am a makeup artist(although that is more of a hobby)

My journey to entrepreneurship has not fully started so I am going to skip talking about that!

However, being/getting into the media without a certificate of qualification has been really tough. The hardest part at the beginning for me was not getting my foot in the door (as my charming nature always helps with that 😉 ) but proving that I could actually do it.

So I started my website where I post weekly podcasts about life and relationship and that helped me build my confidence and speaking prowess (if you listen to my earlier podcasts and compare to the latest ones, the difference is very obvious. I sounded like a croach with my high voice looool).

 The dream is to be an impact on this generation and ones to come. Be an inspiration to someone out there by making them believe in the power of dreams!

Hmmmn… In 5 years, the most inspiring speaker, writer AND entrepreneur. Just wait and watch!

I am really a homebody, so movies, gisting and some snuggling  🙈 

If you dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough! Also Matt 25:15 keeps me going. 

My shoutout and love goes to every one out there grinding. Keep your head up! Pay day is almost here!!
