It’s a unique Monday morning and with all the unrest and uncertainty going on, I’m brining to you some much needed inspiration from MICHAEL UGWU, our entrepreneur of the week
Michael Ugwu popularly knows as Magic, is a force to reckon with
His prowess stretches from finance to entertainment and he’s a real life example that one must never relegate oneself to a box.
I sat with the ex-Sony head of divisions and our chat was entertaining from the onset and throughout
