I met Godwin when I delivered a talk at the University of Ibadan a few years ago, he was a student leader. I thought he was one to watch and he has maintained communications with me since then through many interesting job experiences all related to his passion about change. He and yet another outstanding young person Gbenga Sesan are behind the Microsoft supported anti cyber crime song maga no need pay. The video was recently released.

I was supposed to be in that video (why pray tell?) but was ill when it was shot so you’ll see a little girl wearing a tee shirt with my name on, something which I find worrisomely pleasing.

It is directed by the totally cool Kemi Adetiba and features a number of stars and celebs. It is a good initiative, now we just have to fix the underlying socio economic causes of cyber crime.
