Advice is Great but lessons have shaped me more. I've learnt from various experiences, positive and negative. I share the lessons I've learnt on my YouTube vlog series, Lessons I've learnt as a Creative Entrepreneur.

What brings you the greatest satisfaction personally and professionally?
Feedback from clients. When I play and people cry e.g. at proposals, playing someone's favourite worship songs and they are lost in reverence to God, surprise birthday visits at work,etc, Comments on my blog expressing gratitude or saying I inspire, A genuine Thank you and a genuine hug to show gratitude, A job well done and Emails from Fans/Blog readers.

What quote do you live by?
It is possible to utilize and maximise all the gifts you've been blessed with so live  each day to the fullest and do what you love, Life is too short to be unhappy.

What advice would you give your younger self? 
I was in England for 5 years for educational purposes but I never went out of the UK. I would advise my younger self to travel around Europe, even if it's just a weekend trip via Train to France. Or Delaying my return to Nigeria by a week so I could explore Italy, Germany, Switzerland, etc I used to come back to Nigeria almost every holiday because I missed my family and they missed me too, I missed the hussle and bustle of Lagos, Home, food, etc but the truth is these things never run away. Travel is good, it opens your mind, you're exposed to new cultures and you get to see how humungous the world is.
