Growing up in Nigeria GP worked in a Barber Shop for 2 years maintaining clients while the owner was gone. He has always had a vision for hair and wants to “fix” people when he looks at them to enhance their look through their hairstyle.
When he came to Regina GP attended the U of R for computer science for 3 years before he decided it was finally time to do what he loved. After a tour of TSA he knew the environment was where he wanted to be, surrounded by passionate and creative individuals like him. He doesn’t have many specific idols or role models. He was really influenced by a Jamaican Barber who took him under his wing for a period of time to learn. Gp also looks up to TSA Principal Dan Pritchard, stating he enjoys his gentle nature.
His dream is to open his own Barber Shop and become a world-renowned barber. He wants to be able to sit his father down in his chair and show him, his success and why chose this career path. GP wants to let people know they should never give up on their dreams. “Keep doing what you are doing.”
