Having a Creator mindset helps in both business settings and with the rest of daily lives. Contrastingly, a Victim mindset could potentially hurt relationships and hurt mental health.

He was, for several years, the State House Correspondent of the paper where he maintained two columns – Life in Abuja and the popular weekend treat called Inside Aso Rock.

His insightful and critical analysis of the intriguing politics of that period earned him accolades and recognition which later saw him being promoted to the position of Abuja Bureau Chief at The Punch.

In 2006, he was elevated to the position of Group Political Editor of The Punch. He later joined The Nation as an Assistant Editor and Bureau Chief in Abuja.

At The Nation, his rested The Punch newspaper column, Knuckles, transformed into Knucklehead which offers him the opportunity to continue his weekly interrogation and critique of the socio-political developments in the polity.

A graduate of Religion and philosophy from the University of Jos, Plateau State, Owoeye-Wise is a multiple award-winning journalist whose experience has spanned over two decades and has spread between the print and the electronic media.

 I joined this initiative (as of June 2019) to bring my writing and management skills to the benefit of the African people. I have spent my life in a saturated tech bubble that is the San Francisco Bay Area, so investing time supporting a developing region is my pleasure. Africa has a plethora of potential tech entrepreneurs, and I hope I can link Western business minds to the bright future of Africa, particularly Nigeria.

As editors of this platform, Nurudeen Adeyemi, Oyebamiji Adesoji Usman, Fawaz Olamide and I seek to impact hundreds if not thousands of future African success stories.

We hope that Koosha Azim’s new engagement will help mentor and breed more techpreneurs in an emerging economy like Africa.
