WordPress Origin Story

My first encounter with WordPress was in 2009 when I was looking to commission a website project for my organization, my friend Victor introduced WordPress to me as an easier DIY website builder compared to Joomla and Drupal. I fell in love instantly with the platform and never looked back.

Also in 2011 as a young creative, I wanted to make my voice heard and express myself in writing, this led me to create my WordPress hosted blog which later moved to and now on my personal website

I have been involved with numerous WordPress website projects since then and have managed websites from a number of clients.

I have been an active member of the Lagos WordPress community in Nigeria over the last 5 years and I have covered community events, WordCamps across Africa and have helped showcase young talents who are thriving using technology and most especially WordPress on her YouTube Platform (Yelo Digital Hub)
