By Kemi Mobuse - Sunday, March 20, 2016

Back then in the University, when i knew Olawale Labiyi, the now CEO of Recre8 Images, i was pretty sure, i have never met a more hardworking and dedicated "Farmer" Lol!. we studied same course; Animal Nutrition, and all what we studied was put into real practical use by Olawale, he was always present in class, i doubt i have ever seen him miss any lecture and he was always amiable while doing it all. 

Am therefore not surprised, that, he is able to use the little he has then, to become the masterpiece he is now;
