But I started developing passion for it, And in 2010 I became an admin for Naijaloaded.com, then I got much experience and I met other young minds who are also bloggers. So I realise the importance of information and how it can aid our society. So I started my blog and decided to name it after
myself just for the passion.

What word of advice do you have for your fans out there?
KAYBABA: Believe in your dream, Never make comprise.
Gimmehear:Being a politician in school… What would you love to say to people who hate politics?
KAYBABA:Politics can be defined by the people we have in it, Its no news that politicians are labelled as people who misrepresent the motives of people. But my stance is this, we can only redefine something if we participate in it, Rather than disliking politics or castigating those in power, I will advice we see that niche as a place which is meant for all. Not just for some people. Doing that we create a sense of belonging which in turn will change the ‘general’ public view of politics and politicians. It will ultimately sanitize and then motivate ‘everyone’ to be part of it.
Gimmehear:Thank you very for honoring this interview. Am sure a lot of your fans will be delighted with it.
KAYBABA:you are most welcome.
You can drop a word for Kaybaba if you are one of his fan, be sure he will read it.
