Hello everyone, my name is Ogungwa Peter. I am a cab driver in New York City and I really like my work and life here in the States. I bumped into Jide Alakija on his way to a wedding reception he was covering. I think he's a great guy and he has left his contact details with me so that whenever I come to the UK I'll contact him.

Jide was surprised and overly enthused to meet another Nigerian randomly in such a large city as New York, so much so that he insisted on taking my picture.

Lovely. like this a lot bro,
Jide Alakija: Ta Mate.
Well composed, but I think this would have been better if the nearer eye was in focus versus the farther eye, what do you think?
Jide Alakija: I agree but when I took the shot I didn't see it in the preview screen.
