1) Can you tell us more about you please?
My name is Salem King and I am an infotainer. I make videos that inspire people to do the things that inspire them.
2) How long have you been in the industry?
A little under two years.
3) Please tell EM readers briefly about what you do?
The majority of my audience is between the ages of 18-35. Now the people within this age bracket in Nigeria mostly have the same kind of problems. They’re out of school with no jobs, or they have jobs but they’re not passionate about them, or they have creative pursuits that their families don’t support because it’s not engineering or medicine. I use my platform to talk about these topics and the anxiety that surrounds being in those shoes in a relatable, educative and entertaining way. The best part is that my advice comes from the perspective of someone who’s going through it too.
4) What differentiates you from other speakers/storytellers?
This is a question that my audience should answer. I honestly wouldn’t know.
