The success of his blog and the far-reaching effect of the reportage created a deep-seated vigor for media further gave him much exposure on the inner-workings of entertainment and media and what it takes to grow in this field.
Ajele Owolabi a.k.a “Cashintransit” has helped nurture many upcoming artistes in his capacity as a talent manager; giving them advice on where their strength should lie in terms of their career, and how they should go about the publicity of their intellectual property.
