Vouch for them.

Peju Alatise
They're my friends  •  Owner, khameo designs.
I would have clicked on perfectionist as well but I was given 3 choices. Bolaji pursues quality most of all. I have seen some of his film pr ... ojects, he is creative and knows how to carry people along with him. I am currently working on a micro-scale industry for local women in my community and Bolaji has been an advisor to me and also helped with my business structure. He is honest. His network with other professionals is great! He knows everyone and can pull the strings with effect. He is also a passionate person. He gives his commitment fully to the projects he is involved in. In the past we had often talked about creating mirco-industries to generate wealth for the youth and local women, now that creating such opportunities not just talking about them, Bolaji is helping the the sustainability of these projects.
