What is a fun fact about yourself that people might not know?
I hail from Nigeria, where I spent my formative years. A deep-rooted passion for venturing into uncharted territories, delving into diverse cultures, and embracing novel experiences has been with me since my adolescence. The seeds of this love for travel were sown during my teenage years, courtesy of my father’s military career, which led us to relocate frequently. He was the epitome of knowledge and an exemplary role model. During these relocations, I had the privilege of embarking on worldly adventures with him, sparking my keen interest in learning about various cultures.
My journey of travel and cultural exploration took another significant step when I pursued my master’s degree in the UK, where I was exposed to a rich tapestry of cultures and backgrounds.

Before working here, what was the most unusual or interesting job you had?
Before working at fusionSpan I worked for a halal-based financial service company where we had to create products that were in line with Islamic principles of not charging interest – profit sharing instead. We also couldn’t invest in certain types of equities and investment products but it was a lot of fun to learn a different style of financial services. I was responsible for creating instruments and researching equities-based products that also got listed on the stock exchange, I worked on financial products, debt debt-related products as well in compliance with the services. The transition from this environment to a Tech setting has been an interesting journey for me.
