MY BIO

Nelson Ayaebene is a broadcast journalist with experience in media that spans more than a decade, working in media organizations like NN24, TVC News, Proshare, and Inside Watch Africa.
Nelson is also an associate lecturer at the Nigerian Institute of Journalism (NIJ), Lagos.
Ever since 2007, when broadcast media swept him off his feet, the microphone has become Nelson Ayaebene’s Omnitrix, transforming him into a news reporter, cinematographer, content producer, blogger, media consultant, and lecturer; depending on the time of day.
Just like Clark Kent, this multitalented journalist is passionate about saving people from a Smallville outlook and broadening their professional horizons, through education leveraged on cutting edge technology.  
This is why he created NelKonsulting — a platform for continuous learning, personal and professional development. Considering all his talents, he is suspected to be a retired superhero. But since he has never allowed himself to be caught without his glasses, no one can say for sure. However, Cake is a known Kryptonite.
