Pride makes us artificial, and humility makes us real. According to Thomas Merton.

For those who have met the chubby, handsome Nigerian Canadian Oderinde Qasim Abiola you will agree he is an epitome of humility.

He is a serial entrepreneur who has masterminded a lot of catalysts in the Nigerian entertainment industry and in the diaspora.

Hunter as he is popularly called started show business far back in the late 90’s as one of Nigeria's youngest film marketers in the early stage of Nollywood.


He is a one of the pioneer members of the unique movie producers and marketers’ association of Nigeria.

Hunter, as a promoter, has successfully managed lots of international events in different countries.

He has done lots of successful events in Canada before covid era. They include; Kizz Daniel in Montreal,  boat cruise and  host of Nigeria's ‘A’-list celebrities.

His streak in 2022 has been a huge success. Back-to-back, one would say: the socialite who went on tour during his last vacation to the United Kingdom

, UAR, USA promised Nigerians resident in Canada the summer will

He started with the tour that had award winning Nigerian comedians, Kenny black and MC Funny bones around different provinces and cities in Canada. Immediately after that he had a boat cruise tagged club on the sea, and within a month brought Wasiu Alabi Pasuma to Canada.

One amazing trend with this series of events was the support he got from the community and all the events got sold out.


 No doubt Hunter and his team deserved the awards category.

Oderinde Qasim Abiola, the CEO of Hunter TV Africa has proven he is an exceptional promoter and has established himself as a force to reckon with.

The astute Muslim devotee is happily married with kids.

Xphrame Media wishes Hunter and his team the best of years ahead
