“Why have we not been able….a black man, African, a Nigerian develop a product, affordable but has all the features like what I’m using to make this live video right now and say, ‘” This made by one of us, for all of us.
“If I see a guy that says he has the concept and wherewithal to develop a telephone, a mobile phone. A guy that says, “This has been made for us by one of us”. And then we look at it. I will sponsor the guy and bring everything that is needed.”
“I’m calling on on the Tech-savvy guys. I want somebody that can come up with innovation and say, “Obi, I have all the features plus more.
