Recently, Nigerian media icon Soni Irabor hosted the award-winning technologist Ade Olufeko, on his show, Soni Irabor Live talk show and both gentlemen discussed on various issues ranging from his career in technology to his exposure in the international stage as a curator and Olufeko’s work in humanities.
During the interview, the seasoned broadcaster said, “Mr Olufeko’s expertise covers a wide and largely untapped span of areas, which while seemingly different, all point towards a humanitarian angle. His curative side focuses on creatives whose works surround global issues and his expertise in technology spans towards how technology engages with Africa and the world. Furthermore, he is the quintessential son of the soil who, even after spending a good part of his life abroad, keeps on finding ways to share his knowledge in Nigeria and with the West African region for its own benefit. ”
On Irabor’s show which can also be viewed on, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2B-qbO3Zqc, the two gentlemen talked about non-partisan governance perspectives, Olufeko’s advocacy of women which may be coming for his respect to matriarchy figures and then a need of social responsibility irrespective of a person’s tribe.
In a cool, calm and collected nature, Olufeko’s words took apart outdated “authoritarianism” and “Machiavellian” methods highlighting practical pathways for game changers of society to proffer solutions.
The “Between Generations” is a conversation for those who value contemplation, quietude and a rest assured fact that most viewpoints are arbitrary. Olufeko is a forward-thinking in-house consultant, whose operational and go-live experience is sought for and solicited by many indigenous establishments, multinationals and governments in the sub-Saharan African. His creative influences have ranged diversely from Luis Barragan, Hillman Curtis and Yugo Nakamura. He is slated to moderate the “Socio-Cultural Panel: Taking African culture global” at London Business School on May 12th, 2018 featuring Ozwald Boateng OBE, Rikki Stein and Michael Ugwu. The current president of Ghana will be speaking as a Keynote to the upcoming conference.
Olufeko is happily married. He splits his time between New York City and Lagos Nigeria.
