Name: Hussain Zaguru Abdulqadir
Location: Kaduna, Nigeria
Why did you start your business: It\’s been my childhood dream to start a video and film production company. While pursing my first degree at Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria, I worked on the production of several Hausa films and drama series. Upon graduation, I went full swing into the world of video and film production, which I found were interlinked. I then produced a docu-drama titled “Tun Ran Gini,” a UNICEF sponsored documentary about polio eradication.
Still in its early stage, my company has executed two (2) successful projects. I strongly believe that this year (2013) will propel us further to greater heights. I remain optimistic that my vision for my company will come to pass. My goal is to become the largest reality television and radio production company in Nigeria with a solid reputation for excellent ideas and highest quality services.
As a young African entrepreneur, my voice matters because I want to give back to society. I also want to organize training workshops for women in my community, teaching them about video editing.
