Am Olugbesan olatubosun Timothy, Am addressed as BigBimi on the social scene.
AGE : was born in the mid 90s
Wow, in a sentence, BigBimi is an Hypeman !! Microphone Magician lol. Basically all we do is make people happy, have fun and grove hard!! Using the Microphone
*WHAT ACTUALLY DROVE U INTO SHOW BIZ?
Have actually been into show biz for about 4yrs, it all start with music i used to be an artist infact i wad a member of a music group called IMI then, before we went solo and got signed to Green records Entertainment. Along the line the vision became wider when record label issues began so all i did was to rebrand from just Bimi to BIG BIMI the hypeman. So we can conclude that THE LOVE TO ENTERTAIN PEOPLE DROVE ME INRO SHOW BIZ
* WHAT AND WHAT ARE U BASICALLY INTO IN SHOW BIZ?
Entertainment basically, Hyping more specifically, You see hyping is one thing people are yet to pay proper attention to because they are not really appreciated yet, only for the Big Boys of the industry likes of Jimmie, Dotun of cool Fm, AO etc who have been able to prove the importance of hyman in every event! Now you wont want to host a show without an Hypeman, we bring ginger we bring fire to the table!! Lol not fire that burns jo. . We just awke that spirit to have good vibes and carry our audience along so theres never a dull moment. Right now am sure already feeling a different vibe on this interview lol
*CAN U SHARE WITH US SOME OF THE CHALLENGES YOU ARE FACED WITH IN BUILDING UR BRAND?
Mehn its not been easy o, well nothing good comes cheap except if u want china product lol just joking. The first i wll tell u is crazy, me accepting that i am hypeman was my first challenge cuz i was thinking, shouting on mic, and all. But you see the love for the thing kept growing, it was beyond what i was seeing the vision was getting clearer, cuz then at any event when ders music am usually first to get up and dance ! I just inspir people to get up too after displaying my moves,
I didn’t really have challenge telling my friends about it because they knew it was me i mean the whole hypeman thing was my thing. So the support from my Team is awesome and that makes building my brand Progressive.
One challenge is the event mangers just think u coming to make noise you have to convince them, after the event they now come appreciating the work like wow i never knew blah blah blah .. so one just have be consistent.
*HOW DO YOU MANAGE THESE CHALLENGES? Well thank God almighty, loke i said consistency i just keep knocking till doors are opened then next time the open the door before i get there
*WE UNDERSTAND U ARE AN HYPEMAN
*SO WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND BIN AN HYPEMAN?
Like i said earlier, the feeling to always entertain and let people have fun, i love parties i love music , oncethe dj is giving good jams mehn am up dancing trying to catch the peoples attention then it easy to just say why not join me get up and dance … YOU SEE AT FIRST I WAS DANCING THEN I GOT ATTENTION NOW AM SPEAKING TO THEM, GET UP AND DANCE !! Seeing them dance or should i say seeing them follow my lead was the inspiration
*WHEN DID YPU VENTURE INTO BIN AN HYPEMAN?
Professionally, late 2015 i began to hype for birthdays of friends, family and all
WHATS YOUR MOST EMBARRASSING MOMENT?
Wow few months back in UNILAG, i was called to come hype for a freshers party, mehn lol it was sha my time to perform my magic with the mic, Dj was good!
