Meet DJ ABDON the brain behind the brand “#thewritingDJ”, a DJ,BLOGGER AND A FOOD SCIENTIST. Who spoke in a very articulate and convincing way and his answers provided plenty of depth and insight
ZEEZAH__CAN WE MEET YOU SIR?
#thewritingDJ: My real name is Bolarinwa Ibrahim Abiodun, I am a Disc jockey, a blogger and a food scientist, grew up in Sango Ota, whats known as the boundary between lagos and Ogun state, i’m a muslim, a lover of good music and positive energy.
ZEEZAH__UHMN NICE! DOES YOUR CHOICE OF CAREER MATCH WITH YOUR PERSONALITY?
#thewritingDJ: Hmmm! Wow! Well I have multiple careers tho,So which of them are you referring to?
ZEEZAH__YEAH I KNOW RIGHT!BUT I MEAN HOW DOES BEING A FOOD SCIENTIST MATCH WITH YOUR OTHER CAREERS?
#thewritingDJ: Well, I started off as a science student who always wanted to study animal science, but ended up studying food science and technology at the Polytechnic Ibadan, and being a person who’s been crazy about music since day one the choice wasn’t hard. Its been a challenging road tho, but God has been faithful.
ZEEZAH__YEAH I THINK AM OKAY WITH THAT.
#thewritingDJ: Thank You.
ZEEZAH__CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT THE WRITINGDJ AND FAMILY IS ALL ABOUT,HOW IT ALL STARTED TILL DATE.
#thewritingDJ: thewritingDJ is my brand’s name,combining what i do as a creative together. When I ventured out on this journey I realised that people around me are the reasons why I can do anything at all. I mean People that can go out of their way to see you progress are not just friends They are FAMILY! Merging these we coined out #thewritingDJ_AND_FAMILY
__BREATH TAKING! SO IN ONE WORD (TAF) WAS BUILT WITH THE GREATEST BOND WHICH IS (LOVE)?
ZEEZAH__OKAY!AS AT NOW,HOW MANY ARE THE FAMILY MEMBERS
ZEEZAH__WOW!CAN YOU MENTION SOME?
#thewritingDJ:I don’t think that’s necessary because, mentioning names will only narrow down my focus. All that matters is that in this family we have Quantity surveyors, Bankers,Clearing and forwarding agents, real estate gurus, Students, Songwriters, bloggers, talented persons across all fields and the major aim of this FAM is to build a network of CEOs, we are headed that way and we will get there soon. And soon this get together will take a new dimension in sha Allah.
ZEEZAH__CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT A PROJECT THAT FORCED YOU TO BE INNOVATIVE AND CREATIVE? LIKE WHAT PUSHED YOU!
#thewritingDJ:Hmmmm Well, creativity is innate But opportunities to express oneself is what is rare,What really gingered this movement was the launching of my site www.djabdon.com.ng. After that day sometimes in October 2017, I started seeing things differently as a person. I felt the need to celebrate people around me, because my success is theirs and vice versa.
ZEEZAH__WOW! IMPRESSIVE! SO WHAT’S THE GOAL OF #TAF?
#thewritingDJ:Like I said earlier, the get together this year is a stepping stone to what’s to come. The goal of the brand *#thewritingDJ* Is to influence the average Nigerian youth With positive vibes they never knew existed or were too scared to embrace, orientate the youth on the need to explore their inner abilities, and create a platform where everyone can benefit from. The family is a network of CEOs so everyone is welcome aboard.
ZEEZAH__OKAY!WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH WITHIN THE NEXT YEAR?
#thewritingDJ:Touch as many lives as possible. Physically, emotionally and mentally. Cause as many smiles as possible,and help put Nigeria on the world map in the best way we can.
ZEEZAH__THAT’S GOOD! SO HOW WILL THE UPCOMING ANNIVERSARY LOOK LIKE?
