Award-winning dancer Kafayat Shafau, often known as Kaffy, believes that a lot of youth ask for help because they are confused.
During a “Passion and Profit” empowerment seminar for emerging talent in the creative sector, the Guinness World Record holder revealed this.
Speaking about her vision for the youths, the mother of two said, “It is about creating solutions for the problems in the society. Young people are confused, needing guidance, mentorship, and are hurting and going to whomever that can listen to them and that is the danger.”
Continuing, Kaffy said, “When a young person wants to escape with what is wrong in the head and ends up in the grasp of the wrong nurturer, we would continue to have a cycle of decadence and the way I have seen it 10 years ago and now, it is becoming worse. They say in life there is a balance, we cannot eradicate evil and eradicate good but we can suffocate evil and allow good to breathe. Right now, they are trying to make bad things look good. Even our corporate entities are spending money on frivolous things rather than things that would educate people. Ever since I started this programme, I have gotten girls off the streets, I have taken guys off evil things or even eradicated it in their minds because what they are looking for was self-value. Some people don’t need a billion to be happy but they are telling them they need a billion to be somebody. We need to change that. So, I created the Kaffy Boss Academy as a centre where we get to nurture people’s talent and make them a boss of it.”
The Kaffy Boss Academy has organised a number of seminars that offer doable fixes and stimulating discussions that are necessary to pique the interest of those who are driven and prepared to work hard.
Among the facilitators for the “Passion and Profit” programme were Michael MBA “Ogbolon,” Akintunde Bada, and Adaorah Lumina.
