NNI: Can we meet you sir?
Guest: I am Timi Agbaje, I am an entertainer by passion, Lawyer by profession.

NNI: What defines Creativity  for you?
Guest: Creativity is basically expression to me. You conceive an idea or a concept then you express it for the world to see. Nothing is really ever new.  it’s how you express it to the world that stands you and the idea out.


NNI:  Is there any special skill required to create content? How have you been able to consistently create content?
Guest:  Lol. Special skill required to create? I doubt that. It’s a skill that gets better with consistency. I set a goal of many things I want to express over a period of time and I try to fill the timelines. I still even feel there’s a lot more I can achieve by stretching myself.

NNI: What's your definition of a good content? Creativity or Acceptance by your audience?
Guest:  A good content is creativity well expressed. An idea well conceived and sold to the market right.

NNI: How have you managed celebrity influence and popularity in your space?
Guest: Lol. There’s always something at the back of my mind asides the popularity and the buzz which is Relevance, I care more about that and less about the popularity and the buzz. That keeps me in check.

NNI: Is entertainment your alternative to Law?  What is the merger point for both?
Guest: Lol. They’re not alternatives to me. I feel both of them have huge stakes they contribute to life. Without entertainment, the world will be a dry, bland space and without law, there will be chaos.
I try to infuse law minutely in my creations so people catch a hint or two on how things should play.

NNI: There's this popular trend on Twitter that celebrates Nigerian Creatives. What do you think about celebrating Creatives? Do you think Government has a role?
Guest: I totally support celebrating Creatives.  It simply motivates to do more. Everyone has a role to do. There’s a joy that comes with your works being appreciated, you just want to do more. Government and Society must contribute to this.

NNI: What is your view on Global Youth Development and growth? Are we making progress?
Guest: Definitely, things aren’t how and where they used to be but there’s still a lot of work to be done especially by Africa. I mean, Afrobeats has become a global phenomenon and African artistes have been on the forefront of this and this has largely contributed to the business of music and entertainment globally. Youths across different strata of life have pushed the standards higher in different ways, it can only get better from here.

NNI: How did you strike a balance between education and entertainment, bagging a First Class at the Nigerian Law School?
Guest: Simply, Time management. I set my priorities right and I knew when and what to sacrifice for the other. And for something I would love to add, I put a very unbelievable work rate into preparing for my bar exams, studied my books and I studied the system too, the psychology of the examiners, past questions…  I understood what the courses were really about beyond reading them to pass and all of that.

NNI: What is your advice to fellow young individuals?
Guest: Lol. I would love to tell everyone out there to set crazy goals and smash them. There’s no limit to things we can all achieve. Sometimes, it’s not that it’s not working, the dream and work being put in might not just be big enough.

NNI: What should we expect from you in the near future?
Guest: More, More and More

Thank you very much for your time sir.
