Wedding photography allows me to put all other forms of photography (Portraits, Documentary, Lifestyle, Product, etc.) together to tell a beautiful love story”..he said
“If I’m not shooting, I’m most likely out exploring food, (no, I’m not a foodie, haha), learning new stuff about photography, playing video games, or just chilling on a couch listening to audiobooks,” he continued

Dj Dee Money was in the city of Indianapolis this weekend to drop a doze of his Afro-fusion. The event which was held at Eko Restuarant and lounge, an exotic African lounge that plays host to African parties and events. The event was hosted by Chicago based DJ Dee Money alongside DJ Three K, DJ Matrix, and Indiana’s ace DJ, Deejayxclone.
Young Pablozy, Teeklef, Mr. Duke, and Ojulari were some of the acts I ran into at the event. However, young Pablozy was the only artist to hit the stage on the night to perform a couple of his songs. The music was beautiful and the ambiance was absolutely gorgeous, it felt like the entire city was out at the event.
Kudos to Deemoney and his team for bringing a lit show to the cold city to warm up the place.

Today is the birthday of one of Nigeria’s most prominent sons living in Indianapolis USA. Chief Adetunji Anthony Adeleke is a father, husband, and leader. A consummate professional, project manager and social person. His main interest is the growth and development of all people wherever they come from. Very passionate about Africa and always like to put a smile on other people’s faces.
Chief Adeleke is also the president of NIDO Indiana (Nigerians In diaspora) an organization that caters to the Welfare and development of Nigerians in the diaspora and contributes meaningfully to the growth of Nigeria. They have been behind so many meaningful projects like passport exercises aimed to reduce the stress Nigerians face to obtain passports and several other top events and parties in the city of Indianapolis designed to unite the African population.
I recently asked Chief if he was related to the Nigerian billionaire and legendary Adeleke family but he smiled and kept on moving (I suspect, he is Davido’s uncle.. lol). We from Mazifeanyidotcom and the Nigerian community living in Indianapolis want to use this medium to wish you a happy birthday, good health, and more success in your endeavors.
