How does it feel being a force to reckon with at a young age?
I’m yet to know what that feels like, to be honest. Certain things could be overwhelming daily but I really can’t tell. However, I
feel good! With God on one’s side coupled with hard work, the sky is the limit.
You are said to have interviewed notable Hollywood and UK acts, such as Kelly Rowland, Tyga, Wiz Khalifa, Dawn Richards, Bow wow, Estelle, Cassie, Eve, and many others, what was it like for you?
Whao, It is usually exciting and taxing, but I try to shove away my star status while I’m working and genuinely put my all into my interviews and make them exciting. Many more superstars are on the way. It makes me feel good really.
Are the interviews big achievement for you in this career or are you aiming higher levels?
Every interview is a big achievement and attachment, no matter how big or small the person I’m interviewing is. As for it being a big achievement in my career I don’t think of that, probably when I have a one on one with President Barak Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce Knowles, then I’ll bluff. (Laughs).
You are said to have Bipolar illness... Does this ever affect your productivity at work?
I tend to manage this well, I cringe when it’s called illness as if it is a disorder but yeah it never affects my work, as crazy as it sounds I tend to do my best work when I have a mood episode or crisis.
How have you been able to manage the illness with the responsibility that comes with your online job?
I take my medication, know what triggers my crisis or episode and make sure I have a good support system, so it still makes me take full responsibility of what I do. So, no qualms.
Have you tried seeking some medical attention to fix it?
I’ve always had the medical attention from the get-go. Bipolar disorder can only be managed properly, there is no cure for it, but there is a medication for it.
Has the illness affected your relationship in anyway?
Yes, it has, with friends and family, especially friends, because you are scared to open up to them about your mental health and what’s likely to happen when they know.
Tell us about growing up? What was it like?
I’d say pretty normal. I always kept to myself though, goofed around and was too friendly, but yeah I just had the regular childhood I assume.
You have a great sense of style, tell us about it?
Oh, thanks. I just throw on something and I guess they end up looking nice. Style is what you make it. I prefer to stay simple or go soft rock with boots.
Have you always wanted to read media and communications in university or you diverted?
Actually, no. I grew up wanting to be a computer personnel.
Tell us about yourself and how you became a super blogger?
My name is Seyifunmi, I am a native of Osun State in Nigeria. I’m a 20-year-old media personality, as I like to say. I became a super blogger through persistence and zealousness, and by also making adequate use of every slight opportunity.
