How did you start?
I started out a long time ago.
How did this all come about?
When i was seven -ten years old, i was always forced to go to church and i decided to join a group.
I didn’t like the choir because i will be forced to stand before large crowd
I preferred ‘behind the scene departments’ where you can make the ‘front people’ shine.
So i decided to join the technical department.
I started out by rolling cables,helping out when am asked to ,being the runner, before i learnt how to connect cameras and sound equipment.
Afterwards i went to school,University of Lagos, where i studied Social work and Administration.
I never saw myself becoming a social worker even though i enjoyed doing it.
So i thought to myself ‘what can i do?’
Since i have passion for technical works and live productions,i went to BaseSound School in London for more training on live sound production.
I returned from the UK in May 2013 after the course.
That was basically the beginning of SAPro’s Journey

Advice to aspiring business owners
You have to be ready because its one thing for the opportunity to come and you have nothing to offer!
That would be a disaster.
Success has nothing to do with your poor background.
Be passionate about what you do ,train yourself, prepare your self and wait for your opportunity.
