    Wow. He looks very old for a 30 year old. I’m 30 and myself and friends both male and female look at least 15 years his junior. Well happy birthday.

    Wow, a part of me is laughing me to scorn saying ” see your mate?” another part of me is saying ” you still have 9 months to be 30 so get to work” Really proud of these two and more determined to succeed .

    All the best

    Nice guy, nice crowd, nice initiatives. You are on the radar watch guy for greater heights in Naija affairs. But i did not see any ‘special one.’ Good to be driven, but it does help doing the needful in the direction im thinking early too. Trust you see this and catch my drift. Congratulobia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    His mum has a striking resemblance with Oby Ezekwesili. Is she his Aunt?

      No everyone lie about their age. Young people are doing great things. You should be inspired instead.

    OMG….Still don’t believe people still have energy to question folks age. Because you are deceiful doesn’t me everyone else is like you. Get your life.

    At 30, this man has accomplished a lot. Enough to make some of the great minds in Nigeria come out to clebrate him. Rather than think of how to develop yourself and make an impact in your community, you are worried about his age.

    Happy birthday Mr. Chude. May God contnue to bless and keep you, may he give you the grace to continue to follow the straight and narrow path. With tempatations running wild from every angle in naija, you’ll def need the grace of God to maintain your intergrity.

    Well I think he has been working so hard, that he looks older. Look at Obama now, he looks 70 compared to when he became a president. Sometimes hard work can make u age or perhaps it’s just his genes.

    In fact I’d say his genes. Sounds more likely
