Who Is Mide Ajayi?

Mide Ajayi is a tenacious mind, a unique creative who’s ambitious, God fearing and kind. Besides his interesting personality, 

Mide Ajayi is a talent manager with a daring sense of humor and the owner of Superbold magazine as well as founder of District Youths.

He is the second son of a family of 7 from the western part of Nigeria, that is very passionate about giving back to the society and creating opportunities for others around him to thrive; hence the vision behind his latest project- District Youth.

District Youth is an initiative set to create platforms, opportunities that will inspire and connect the visionary youth on a journey of self discovery and personal development built with acquired skills that will prepare the youths for the future.

Quickie: learn more about District Youth here.

When asked; what made you start District Youth? 

He said;

“Growing up, I saw episodes where people around me wanted to learn a skill but were unable to afford it, because the cost of learning the skill was almost as much as what the families needed for support. That broke my heart even more…

So when I was in ss2, I thought to myself;

I want to be my own boss.

And I began to actively seek out opportunities that would enable me achieve this goal, eventually I graduated high school and got admitted into higher institution.

As we all know, the Nigerian educational system isn’t such a firm one and we had to deal with a lot of strikes while in school, during that infamous 6 months strike,

I got myself into working with different people in the industry which gave me a lot of platforms to start my career and Superbold professionally.

Quickie: Superbold is digital magazine with three printed editionsSee their lastest feature with Steff London Here.

I believe the youths hold the key to unlocking Nigeria’s economic potential and that is why I created this initiative District Youth so Youths can connect, network, be inspired and motivated to be the change they wish to see in their future. And this is not a task for only one man or a handful, it is a collective effort.

Therefore I urge everyone who has the capability to make this platform thrive to join me and make the youths great again.

Maison Martell is proud to announce Davido as its new Ambassador and the face of the upcoming Martell Blue Swift campaign in Nigeria

Maison Martell is delighted to announce Davido, the singer-songwriter and record producer, as its new “Standout Swift”. He will become an international ambassador for the Cognac House, with which he shares a sense of freedom and audacity, as well as the will to pave the way for others and create a legacy for future generations.

Although his songs are the soundtrack to Nigerian nights, Davido’s fame extends far beyond the borders of Africa. Over the past decade, he has raised the bar by shifting from the norm, reaching milestones that have brought the Naija music scene to international prominence. His roots in both the United States and Nigeria help to create a link for cultural tolerance amongst his fan-base, making him particularly influential among the emerging leaders who are shaping the future.

For Martell, a “Standout Swift” is someone who challenges convention and opens the way for others – and Davido certainly has that power. “Davido and Martell is above all the story of an encounter. Davido is fired by the same creative energy as Martell. His songs are a way for him to express his unique talent and his bold personality and – above and beyond that – to speak for his generation,” comments César Giron, CEO of Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët.

Davido launched his own production company DMW (Davido Music World) in order to inspire creativity by paving the way for talented young musicians. Like Martell, he is creating a legacy that starts – but does not end – with him.

“I am proud to go on this incredible adventure with Martell, as I know we are pursuing the same goal: opening the way for others, each within our own creative field. We share the same idea that we rise by lifting up others. Through my songs, I want to show the new generation that anything is possible. That’s what I love about Martell’s history and expertise: the capacity to continually reinvent tradition,” says Davido.

“For Pernod Ricard Nigeria, the collaboration with Davido represents a major step that will contribute to further raising the profile of contemporary Nigerian culture and bringing it to a worldwide audience,” says Sola Oke, Managing Director of Pernod Ricard Nigeria.

The new Martell Blue Swift campaign featuring Davido will be unveiled later this year.

Gift Cards And Bitcoin Trading Culture In Nigeria (Crypto9japays Founder – Mr. Oladipupo Samuel)


There used to be days when most of the now easy-to-do things were tough because of non-civilization in this part of the world, sending items and money from foreign countries cost a lot more stress, verification and sometimes extra fees to get them done, which I don’t think any of us deserves the stress, With the Introduction of cryptocurrency in 2009, it was easily and widely accepted by Nigerian because it was a solution to our long time stressful lifestyle

The introduction of bitcoin have made it easy for Nigerian in diaspora send money to wherever they want because cryptocurrency has no geographical barrier or ethnical barrier , as long as you have a wallet address , bitcoin can be sent to your wallet from anywhere in the world , the main reason why most country government don’t want it or always go against it , because it has stopped them from getting the normal remittance fee from international funds transfer like Western union , MoneyGram and so on , with the widespread of cryptocurrency , various companies and stores like Apple, Amazon , Starbucks, PlayStation , Xbox , Google and so on starts issuing gift cards which were only packed into holiday gift packages back then , before most stores started selling them. Unfortunately some of this gift cards are included in packages of people who actually don’t need them, for example “a 70 year old single man given a gift that contains a Sephora gift card when we all know Sephora gift cards are used only on Sephora store which sells mostly only female stuffs” or an android user given an ITunes gift card as gift when we all know only Apple product would use an iTunes gift card so. Instead of wasting or abandoning the gift cards, we have Fintech companies that can buy them and pay FIAT (Any Country Currency). Most people would ask how is the bitcoin changed to naira (real money) or how can a gift card exchanged to naira (READ ABOUT DROPSHIPPING)?

We have had some few exchange companies earlier as at the launch of bitcoin in West Africa but when the fintech space was expanding more, a lot of people were getting scammed and there was a lot of wrong impression about bitcoin trade. In 2017, Acepaid Technology a registered digital marketing company introduced a subsidiary of the company “CRYPTO9JAPAYS” to help solve the problem of unreliable trades, CRYPTO9JAPAYS deals mainly on exchange of bitcoin to naira and exchange of any unused /new gift cards to naira at a reasonable rate with a fast payment. Trade were initially done on WhatsApp but we had lot of complains about people cloning fake WhatsApp and claiming to be us , so we stopped trading on WhatsApp and launched our website platform for safer , faster and reliable trade (www.crypto9japays.com) , We have made the digital world easier for everyone and we would keep satisfying all our client from all of the world , you can sign up and make an account in less than 3 minutes , you start trading with the most reliable bitcoin and gift card exchange company in Nigeria.

Okorocha Condemns Murder of Gulak,Numerous Loss of Lives, Advises Against Unguarded Utterances

 

– SENDS HIS HEARTFELT CONDOLENCES TO HIS FAMILY & GOVERNMENT OF ADAMAWA STATE.

– APPEALS TO LEADERS TO ALWAYS GUARD THEIR UTTERANCES ON SENSITIVE ISSUES, IN THE INTEREST OF THE NATION & HER PEOPLE.

– CALLS FOR WHOLISTIC INVESTIGATION TO UNRAVEL THE CIRCUMSTANCES SURROUNDING THE MURDER OF THE POLITICIAN.

Former governor of Imo State and Senator representing Imo West Senatorial Zone, Senator Rochas Okorocha has outrightly condemned the unfortunate murder of one of the front row politicians in this country, Alhaji Ahmed Gulak, describing his death, as unfortunate and disheartening.

Senator Okorocha has also sent his heartfelt condolences to the family of Alhaji Gulak and to the government of Adamawa State, over the death of the politician, explaining that, the nation at large and Adamawa State in particular, have lost a very vibrant politician.

He regretted that politics has in recent time, been allowed to eat deep into the fabric of the nations life, so much so that, when certain situations like the death of Gulak arise, leaders would foot-drag over what they should have ordinarily done or say, because of the needless political colourations some leaders have chosen to give to every incident.

Okorocha appealed to leaders and stakeholders, to always guard their utterances on sensitive issues, to avoid jeopardizing efforts being made by genuine leaders to stop the ugly story of insecurity in the Country, adding that, leaders should show their commitment to the campaign against insecurity through their utterances, actions and inactions.

Senator Okorocha calls for unmitigated investigation to unravel the motive or circumstances surrounding the killing of Gulak, adding that, the Inspector-General of Police should take over the investigation to ensure that a thorough job is done.

Okorocha regretted the spate of killings across the nation including his home State Imo, that had been peaceful before now, stating that, where the use of force or use of arms has failed, diplomacy, dialogue and God-given wisdom can be deployed.

He remarked that anybody or any leader trying to score cheap political point or gain, out of these killings, should be seen as very unpatriotic and called on such people to help the nation, by having a rethink, adding that the lives of Nigerians can not be equated with political gains.
