We had the good fortune of connecting with Oyindamola Kolawole and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Oyindamola, what habits do you feel play an important role in your life?
One habit that helped me succeed is self discipline

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a professional contortionist/performer and also a flexibility coach and yoga instructor. I am very proud and excited about how far I have come as a person in my career and how far I think I still have to go. I go to where I am today through hard work and dedication to my craft. It was not easy achieving my dreams but theirs a popular saying which says “nothing good comes easily”, you have to work hard for it.

Along the way I’ve learnt a whole lot of lessons which has also helped me grow for example, I’ve learnt to work hard for my stuffs, I’ve learnt that patience is a virtue and I’ve also learnt that when preparation meets opportunities, it’s equals to success.

I just want the world to see me for who I am and see how much my act has helped me grow.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
To be honest I would be sure to take them out to the best places but unfortunately I’m new to the environment so I don’t really know places in the city yet.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to give a shout out firstly to my wife who has been my greatest fan and greatest supporter and them my mum whom I believe always prays for me every single day. Lastly I want to give a shout-out to a friend turn brother AKINWUNMI AkINGBADE (MOON) for always being there to support me any day any time in every way possible.
