Key Insights from the Panellist
Adebola Williams…. “If you know that all I want is the media, then let your running around be in the media space.”
In his discussion during the conference, Adebola Williams was quoted to have said “Do everything that makes you happy…. You have to always get value out of what you do. If you are doing everything, it’s fine but is it making you happy or do you think at that its getting you closer to where you are going.”
“Everybody needs the media, one way or the other.”
“You can’t brand without a value. Putting identification on your value is key.”
“Every experience is useful. No experience is useless it is for you to sit down and say what did I learn from this, what did I take from this….What I find from you is that you have a vision for your life, if you have a roadmap of how you are going to achieve that vision, you will do less of running around. The reason why you are all running around is that there is no vision.”
Adenike Oyetunde…. “You should use social media to amplify what you are doing and what you are trying to accomplish”
Kenny Blaq….. “I’ve been doing comedy for 10 years but people knew me three years ago. Until you go viral, keep doing what you know how to do. Assurance go cover you”

“Everyone is a celebrity. In your little way, you can be a star in your own field,….. Sometimes, as celebrities, we don’t know the level of influence that we wield on social media”….. Toyin Abraham
