  • One of the most beautiful things about Africa is our diversity and it should be used as a strength to help one another.
  • This is testament of the essence of investigative journalism, to tell stories that no one tells and to shed light on dark places with the hope that it will improve humanity.
  • That’s my motivation, to use the tools and the opportunities that I’ve been given to help others live a better life.
  • You just have to put in the work, there is no other way. When you put in the work and surround yourself with the right people, recognition will naturally come. When you are new in the newsroom, align yourself with the achievers and don’t be afraid to ask for help.
  • Accept challenges and go the extra mile. Pay attention to details and be reliable. Don’t be desperate for fame and fortune, it will come to you when you least expect.
  • Editors love dependable reporters who have a nose for news, write well and are well-behaved. In no time, they will begin to trust you with big stories and your big break will come.
  • As a leader, you can’t thrive in isolation, you can’t thrive by yourself. You need a community of people that believe in you, you need a community of people that inspire you, you need a community of people that encourage you and see value in what you do.
  • there is something gratifying about contributing to make a change, contributing to positivity, contributing to changing the narrative, not just in Africa but in different part of the world.
  • As human beings, we do not exist in isolation. We’re here to support one another, to help one another.
  • It is fine when you enjoy what you do but be professional about it as well.
