The Spark honestly kickstarted my business properly by providing me with an empowerment grant for the purchase of major equipment which became a game changer for my brand. I’m still and will always be grateful to THE SPARK.

Though my meeting with Mr Akinsola Muse was brief (his hands were tied up as we only met him once on set), it was a defining moment for me. My works have been published in international journals and I have some awards to show for it; a major one is the Nikon Africa Photo Contest and I'm currently one of Tecno Mobile Camera Experience Officers. The Spark surely broadened my horizon!
