MEET TUNJI OYEDOKUN
AFRICA’S BEST MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER
According to a very powerful quote by Sean John Combs also known by his stage names Puff Daddy, Diddy, and P. Diddy,
“We’re all dreamers, but there’s a reality to achieve our dreams. And I think that’s what separates the successful dreamers from the people that lay in bed and dream, that when we open up our eyes, we see clearly what we have to do to achieve our dreams.”
This is global words of hope for Diddy is a prime example of someone that is truly fearless. Although he feels fears just like anybody else, he isn’t a prisoner to his emotions.
Instead he dares to do the improbable and that is what results in his success.
It’s a must that you let your heart guide you instead of your emotions.
Your emotions will keep you from trying, whereas your heart will guide you through each endeavor.

Q: TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF
Ans: I am Tunji Oyedokun, a motivational speaker, writer, life coach,
blogger and an entrepreneur. I have learned from my personal
experiences in all areas of life. I am changing and impacting lives
positively all around the world with my stories of overcoming my
difficult circumstances, life challenges, fear and bad memories of the
past to discover my talent and began to pursue my dreams.
It must be noted that as a little boy, I suffered from a
disease that was thought to have affected part of my brain which
prevented me from talking for months and also affected speech but with
God and the untiring efforts of my parents I was able to overcome the
sickness. The slight impairment in my speech was one of the fears I had to
overcome to become a motivational speaker.
Q: WHAT LED YOU TO BECOME A MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER?
Ans: I was led to become a motivational speaker and writer by my
ability to discover my talent in motivating and inspiring people to
also find the reasons for their existence and live up to their
potential in life. I was able to find out that I was born to raise
talents and tomorrow’s leaders. I realized my passion and desire to
motivate, inspire, change and impact positively as many lives as
possible to discover the talents that are hidden inside of them and
begin to use these natural skills to achieve success and live out
their purpose on earth. Also, the hunger within me to live a
purposeful, satisfying, meaningful and fulfilled life played an
important role in answering to this great calling.
Q: WHO OR WHAT MOTIVATED YOU TO THIS PROFESSION
Ans: I was motivated by my passion to motivate, inspire, change and
help many people discover their talents and live a fulfilled life in
the face of challenges. The desire to make people believe in their
capacity and that it is possible to achieve success regardless of
their background, family history, disability and difficult
circumstances motivated me to do what I do. The person that got me
motivated and aroused the talent in me is Les Brown- an American
Q: AT EMERGING AFRICAN LEADERS CONFERENCE YOU SPOKE ON DISCOVERING YOURSELF; PLEASE TELL US MORE ABOUT SELF DISCOVERY
Ans: To discover yourself, you must first admit that you are here for
a purpose. You must realize that you being here is to accomplish
something great. You must also believe that you were born with great
talents to live a fulfilled life. It is after you have known all these
things that you can take a step to discover what your talent is and
what you are here to accomplish. And how do you discover your talent?
It is simple! You only need to find out what is it that gives you joy
whenever you engage in doing it. You need to discover that thing that
you can do 7 days a week without complaining. You must dig it out and
begin to use it to achieve success and impact others positively.
Q: DO YOU THINK YOU CAN MAKE YOUR DESIRED BILLIONS FROM MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING?
Ans: one of my quotes says “Successful people are not measured by the
level of their education or amount of wealth they can acquire for
themselves but number of lives they can change with their wealth and
people they can impact positively with the talents they possess inside
of them.” As it is, my main priority now is not about the billions
that I am going to make but the number of lives I can motivate to also
discover their talents, begin to pursue their dreams and achieve
success. Although, since I threw my dream into space like a kite, it
has brought me new friends, love from around the world, knowledge and
Emerging African Leaders Award for impacting lives positively. I know
the wealth will come at the appropriate time if I don’t relent in
pursuing my dream.
Q: TELL US ABOUT YOUR FUTURE BOOK AND JUST RELEASED DVD

purpose and ten steps on how people can discover their talents and
live up to their true potential in life. My first book is being
compiled and would be published soon.

motivational speakers to have passed through this planet earth. I hope
to have motivated millions of people worldwide to be useful to
themselves, families, communities and countries.
