In March 2018, Daysman Oyakhilome Woghiren took to the stage to deliver the keynote presentation at the Nelson Mandela Leadership Awards which held in Africa’s buzzing economic capital of Lagos. Confident and cracking jokes, the young executive and serial enterpreneur seemed so much at ease with the beaming audience, comprising industry leaders, the media, youth leaders, celebrities and admirers. The creative media mogul is attempting to shift the conversation past the success of Carel Films, a motion pictures conglomerate which he founded in 2015 and has successfully smashed bookmaker’s predictions, setting financial records and breaking them, industry-wide.
Carel Films, one of his companies has so far won several awards as the best media production firm not only in Nigeria, but beyond Africa to the global stage. It was originally inspired by the rising need for gospel music videos to rise above mediocrity and produce quality videos that would compete anywhere in the world. That drive birthed the new revolution in christian media, encouraging the young entrepreneur who had functioned mostly in the tech business where he ran NETSAT which was already making big waves and earning even bigger bucks and a world-wide following.
