aha! Trybe: How long have you been a member of aha! Trybe? 

Oladimeji: I’ve been a member for about 3 months.

aha! Trybe: Why did you join the Trybe? 

Oladimeji: A friend told me about it and I loved the idea that you could access medical care at such an affordable rate. I decided to give it a try. 

aha! Trybe: How would you describe your experience with us so far? 

Oladimeji: My experience so far has been so nice. I’ve gotten more than what I expected. The medical providers are so nice when they speak to you and really good at what they do.

aha! Trybe: What do you like most about the trybe?

Oladimeji: I love the unity and friendliness on the trybe. There’s a way everyone comes together nicely. I also appreciate the follow up from the medical provider after I accessed care for the first time. It was nice how he checked on me to see that I was doing well after the treatment with the medications I got. 

aha! Trybe: Tell us a nickname you presently have or have had in the past and how it came about.

Oladimeji: My nickname is Dime (pronounced “dyme”). How did I come about this? Well, my full name is Oladimeji so I just removed he Ola- in front and the -ji at the back. That was how I came about it. People also used to call me “Dimeboy”. I don’t remember how this one came about but I just know people used to call me Dimeboy. In fact, it was Dimboy, not Dimeboy. I didn’t like the fact that they were calling me Dim-. The name sounded somehow and ridiculous. I had pessimistic thoughts towards it and so I just changed it to “Dime”.

aha! Trybe: What did you want to become when you were a child?

Oladimeji: I always wanted to become a farmer. A big farmer. Because when I was young, I loved President Obasanjo and he had a farm. I got to know about his farm and visited it once. Since then, I was inspired to take up farming as my occupation too.

aha! Trybe: What is your current occupation? 

Oladimeji: I’m a make up artist and a horticulturist. I plant and take care of flowers. 

aha! Trybe: What do you love most about your job? 

Oladimeji: The fact that I get to meet a lot of new and happy people. Unlike other jobs, you get to meet happy faces when you do make up. You barely come across people that are sad because everyone is excited about the party. I also love the fact that I’m a guy in the make up industry. I get different reactions from people about that. Each time I want to go out for a job, I’m always eager to see the expression on people’s faces once they realize I’m a guy. 

aha! Trybe: Can you tell us 3 most important rules you live by?

Oladimeji:

1. Care less about what people say/think.

2. What would be, would be (que sera sera).

3. Understand the people around you. Know who’s for you and who’s not for you. 

aha! Trybe: Does success, for you, depend on having a university degree?

Oladimeji: No. Big NO!

aha! Trybe: What is your idea of good music?

Oladimeji: I’m not all that into music. Most times, I go well with whatever is playing and some times, it depends on my mood. 

aha! Trybe: What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve done?

Oladimeji: I travelled to Kenya to go and work, without knowing anyone there. I just wanted to do it all by myself. It was fun, but at the same time it was stressful and tiring cos the cost of living there is way higher. I had to pay for house rent every month, unlike here in Nigeria where you pay per year. 

aha! Trybe: Do you feel like there are double standards when it comes to rules for men and women?

Oladimeji: Mmmmmm. I can’t really say. It’s one of those things I try not to think about because it’s complicated. But I feel like everyone has their own fair share of problems and fun in life. Some things are easy for men but not for women and vice versa. 

aha! Trybe: What advice would you like to share with members of the community?

Oladimeji: Just be happy.  

aha! Trybe: Do you have a business you would like us to patronise?

Oladimeji: I’m available for contracts for beautifying houses with flowers. You can contact me if you’re building a new house or anything and need me to beautify the compound with flowers. I can be reached via phone or WhatsApp on +234 816 740 5323.

aha! Trybe: Anything else you would like to share with us?

Oladimeji: You’re doing a great job. Keep it up.
