His hard work and passion for FoodClique is unmistakably evident when he talks about eradicating hunger. As the CEO, he is focused on increasing and developing strategies for all organizational channels to ensure provision of more food to people in need through a network of agency that shares similar interest on hunger.
Prior to starting FoodClique with his friends, Bolajoko worked as a presenter with Super-Screen where he anchored Contact Youth Program.

When asked about his hobbies, he cited "talking about why we must end hunger" but his profile will not be complete without the mention of his passion for sports especially Arsenal FC. So when not working, Bolajoko is busy watching football and still dreams about a first champions league medal for the premier league side but we are more happy that he has a bigger passion and dream for the less privileged.
