He is a video blogger and founder of the hugely popular ‘What’s up Africa’. He trained and worked as a Lawyer for four and a half years. But despite the financial security of that profession and the opportunities to live and work in some of the world’s best cities, he was unhappy and wanted to do something more creative and fulfilling. He ditched law for a new career in journalism. Ikenna Azuike, master of wit and satire, in his TEDxEuston 2013 presentation, talks us through his toothbrush eureka moment and of how sometimes one needs to leave the conventional and the safe to do what needs to be done. Ikenna reminded us that;

“It is better to be at the bottom of a ladder you want to climb than to be at the top of one you don’t want to climb.”

Watch his amazing talk – be prepared to laugh and cry and everything in between.
