Tunde is one of those people I literally bumped into. I was finishing my last quarter at SCAD’s Atlanta, GA campus and my homegirl BOSCO was having a business meeting at coffee shop and I decided to go and hang out. At the meeting, I met Tunde. Soft-spoken with mighty ideas, Tunde’s energy and excitement to create is more infections than any sticky-fingered kid’s cold. This man is constantly on his grind and collaborating with his fabulous lady Oni. Also, for your information, Tunde has a very precise trigger finger. He took this of me a few days before I finished school and returned to Chicago.
And now, everyone, meet Tunde. Creator of FRESH.i.AM…
