I believe that Giving is the highest level of living. That’s why I created the Naijatraffic Awards through which we support, encourage, and celebrate the best and brightest talents in the Nigerian music industry who have done wonderfully well in their musical career. and also to celebrate, encourage and promote the achievement of the new generations who also have done wonderfully well in their various fields and not getting enough recognition.
I will not rule out having a foundation, if that will further aid my objective of giving back to society; on the other hand, I choose to be a silent donor to good causes. Nonetheless, I will also not stop doing what I have been doing since my secondary school days: helping those whose paths cross mine.
