Akinola Abdulakeem. Personal Life.
I am from Osun State, Nigeria, but I grew up in Lagos; as far as I can remember, I have been an extremely competitive person, which inspires me to work very hard. I started my first business selling Tofu (Beske or Wara). My Guardian at the time (RIP) gave me the capital, which I tripled within a month.
The entrepreneurial spirit didn’t stop there; I had a bigger dream of transforming the world through digital.
After I was done with high school, my dad wanted me to learn furniture, hell he found a place for me to learn too, something I had zero passion for, so I fled home and went to live with my Aunt. She put me in a computer school where I developed a passion for programming and software development.
When I gained admission to study in college, I wasn’t given my preferred course; I was given Agriculture; I went for it anyway, but that never stopped my passion and determination to explore the tech world, keep learning, and keep growing regardless of the odds.
Today, I’m currently the CEO of one of the fastest-growing software development companies in the United Kingdom.
