Can we meet you?
I am Kehinde Kenku, a digital marketer, real estate agent, blogger and face model. I studied Business Administration at the Lagos State University (LASU). I have five certifications in digital marketing. The three major ones are with Sesewa and United Nations Introduction to Digital Marketing, and the second is the Lagos State Employability Support Project in collaboration with Arc skill. I write a lot and I help people to build their platform and I help businesses to grow by putting them through on how to run advertisement on virtually all social media platforms.
What informed the idea behind this training?
A lot of people have underestimated social media, the work, worker and the workplace are changing because of the evolution of technology. In the next 10 years, there are some jobs that will no longer exist. I do most of my work at home, and the money is not perfect but it is okay for me. So it about you changing in line with technology and building your profile to stand out. A good profile will help you get jobs online. Although it takes time, but you sincerely need to build yourself.
How do you manage these four works?
It is flexibility. I do my digital marketing at home. I take freelance jobs which last for one to two months and it takes flexibility to do all. For real estate, I only go out when my clients need me. All my work are from home. Same goes to face model, I only do that when my service is needed and it all depends on my availability.
As the CEO of Yels Concept, what does Yels stand for?
YELS stands for Youth Entrepreneurs Leaders and Speakers. Content development, entrepreneurship development and trainings are our core focuses.
