Decided to choose software engineer carrier after my encounter with princess Madam Tina Iyare about 2004 – 2005, when she contacted me to design a simple Edo alphabetical software. She told me that there was no one to do the software except for a yoruba she contacted early in sweden. This got me challenged as I was not happy. I felt its time Edo be Edo writer and designers to avoid previous damages by other ethnic groups authors and writters done to Edo history, culture and political relevance in the body politics of Nigeria. I decided to change the narative that Edo people are not educated. This made me start lots of research on Edo language, wrote and publish lots of articles, designed lots of website (www.otedo.com / www.ihuanedo.ning.com ) to share relevant informations on Edo language, culture, history and current affairs. My Edo nationalism grows more bigger as I started Edo organisations, designed national flag, amblems, coat of arms and many revolutionary programs and documetaries. Motivated young Edo scholar and bedrock of current Great Benin revolutionary organisations and movements all over socio media platforms.

Like many great heros and legends, always start with a small beginning with lots of huddles.

  • Was helping my mother at Ekiosa market to sell before going to school by afternoon in my secondary school days. Help my father on wkends and holidays in farming in the village.

  • Was refused entering uniben twice because of fail in english languge despite having 5 credits.

  • Did all kinds of job including driving a taxi in Benin City to help myself obtained an ND in Banking and finance at federal polytechnic Oko, Anambra state.

  • The fustration to survive made me decide take desert to Europe that landed me in Spain (which jorney almost ended my life in two occassions)

  • As Europe street hustler with all institutional racism, life in europe was not as we thought but a second hell.

  • In all, one must not loose hope, be determined and focus as there is always positive results for hardwork bravely done.


Be determine, focus, stay away from religious indoctrination. Develop a descipline to never be idle. You are either working, studing or learning something. Never be too carried away by the success of others. Know you have your own ability, talent, strenght and purpose. Every little beginning consistently improve upon will soon become archievement.
