For ardent followers of this blog, this name shouldn’t seem strange to you. Sedo Elijah Ebinne is simply who I will call fierceness and strategy put together. To the House of Dav-Oz in general, Sedo has been a large key that have led to the open doors of ideas and smart strategies leading to the development of the brand.
During the first DOMI Awards in 2017, I made a resolve not to include my two best friends as part of the awardees. I maintained that resolve in 2018 during the second DOMIs; but this year, I just couldn’t help it. This young man has been one of the rocks that have anchored the brand to a firm stand. I never mix words when I tell people this; Sedo was one of the major contributors to my getting better as a graphic designer. I remember when I took up graphic design as a major career, I’d show him some of the works done for clients. While the clients had loved the work, Sedo would see how much improvement I needed to make and point it out. It was so hard to do a design that appealed to him; and for some reason, I needed his appeal that I did people’s works with lessons learnt from him. Let me say this; Sedo is not a graphic designer but as at then, he knew more than me in graphics. When he eventually loved one of my works, I was seriously beaming with smiles. It felt like I had achieved the sun, moon and stars.
Sedo is a soon-to-be lawyer, a very gifted & talented singer, a brand influencer, a professional writer both internationally & locally, a blogger and a columnist. His BLOG is one of his platforms where he exhibits his literary prowess as well as creative genius. He’s also dabbled in the fashion industry for a little while. In 2018, we partnered to produce Dav & Sed, a short lived clothing line which had a long lasting effect on each of us.
Sedo Elijah Ebinne was one of the first columnists contracted to write for the blog. His column, SEDO WRITES, is the most visited on this blog and contains creatively perfected narratives on issues and matters. He’s also the External Administrative Officer of the Dav-Oz Grafix, a position he held even before appointment.
Having him as a best friend, a business partner and a brother is one of the best things that have ever happened to this brand. So, it’s my pleasure to announce him as one of this year’s awardees.
Keep in touch as we continue to reveal this year’s awardees.
