Meet Icenuel, The Young Official Photographer Of The Glo Bounce And Slide Event In Ibadan


Articles are incomplete without pictures because seeing is believing. Pictures are evidences that make journalism complete through the dissemination of information to the general public. On this note, its safe to say journalism may be imperfect without this young man from Awgu LGA, Enugu state named Okafor Ginikah Emmanuel a.k.a Icenuel, a graduate of English Language from Federal College of Education (special). He is a self-motivated and goal driven professional photographer that sees life through the camera lenses. 
During an interview, he made reference to a popular quote which says:

"Life is like a camera, just focus on what's
important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, just take another shot."

This creates an imagery of life challenges and how to overcome them using an analysis of the philosophy of photography. Photography to Icenuel is a flare that runs in his family. His big sister was a prolific photographer before the demands of marriage withdrew the camera from her hands.

Happiness and success to Icenuel is when he makes people look appealing and beautiful through pictures. Giving them that sweet memory that makes them want to teleport into the past and live there. His greatest accomplishment is not financial but when the photo album of an event makes the organiser wear that bright and long-lasting smile.

Icenuel is blessed with stellar skills in videography, photoshop, graphic designs, event planning, and management among others. The Ibadan-based photographer boasts of a resume that media houses would kill for. He is the founder of the Icenuel Media which is very prominent in Ibadan among the socialites. He currently runs a partnership deal with another top photographer who studied in Australia. The company is termed Exclusive Media which employs the usage of topnotch cameras and other exotic instruments of photography.
Icenuel was the brain behind the glossy pictures of the popular ''Kilonsele On Campus" KOC magazine which covered events in several higher institutions in the South-West region and other areas in Nigeria. He played a pivotal role in the success of the SEAMS award which brought several talented but budding music artistes in Nigerian schools to limelight.
He is the official photographer of ParrotXtra Magazine which is one of the media heavyweights in the South-West part of Nigeria. He also had a brief stint with Enquirer Magazine in Lagos. And also he is currently the official photographer of the Buggatti Records Group, BRG which signed singer Sossi, the ''Seebee'' crooner, Smoothkiss, Sifter and The Confirm.

Hardwork they say will always pay off, this young man in his twenties was the official photographer of Globacom's "Slide and Bounce'' event which took place in Ibadan on the 29th of August, 2015. He beat thousands of photographers in Oyo state which has a population of over 4 million people. According to him, photography goes far beyond the quality of the camera you are handling as the expertise of the man behind it counts.

The Glo Slide and Bounce event was graced by top Nigerian stars like it was held in the sky. Psquare, M.I Abaga, DJ Lambo, actor Odunlade Adekola, MC Jimmie, Reekado Banks, Sossi, Wande Coal and a host of others.
A handful of Nigerian celebrities were spotted lobbying the Icenuel for copies of their pictures due to the quality of food he brings to the dining table.

Icenuel nurses the dream of owning an entertainment magazine that showcases top events across the country as well as elegant models that could brighten up any blurry vision.
These are the kinds of people Nigeria needs to serve as an inspiration to the unemployed youths who only see life through the window of white collar jobs.
Icenuel can be reached on 08038611600 and for business engagements.
