I have had successful photography exhibitions at the Bogobiri Art Festival in Lagos in 2013, and in 2014 had another exhibition at Terra Kulture which he was invited to do by the organising committee of FELABRATION. I was the first artist in residency at "MILIKI" where I had 2 more exhibitions, my last exhibition was at the Book and Kitchen in London 2017. Since leaving film School I have shoot a film called “Orisa Aafin” in which he was the main lead, Executive Producer, Producer, as well as Director in 2010.
