In over 10 years I have worked with some of Africa’s high-growth startups to come up with product and growth strategies that resulted in high usage, retention, and revenue increase. I am able to provide guidance for folks who are in the early stage of their product careers and also help with direction for folks who are looking to build digital products for the African market.

I am currently CEO of Zilla where we are enabling African shoppers to buy now and pay later across several merchant stores spread across Nigeria.

Mentorship motivation

  • I want to give back to the startup ecosystem and entrepreneurs coming up
  • I want to make new connections for myself and/or the organization I represent

I had a lot of help from folks in my community and from many colleagues and friends. These people helped me become who I am today and coupled with a lot of hard work and an intention to succeed, I have been able to build sufficient mastery in the African tech scene.

I would love to pay this back to other folks who would need clarity and direction for their product and career decisions.
