About the program, Ajiboyede said “People want to connect to their idols, those people they worship from afar and exceptional with Sam gives them the chance to participate in the live interviews, asking questions and getting encouraged. We want to empower as many people as possible with zero to hero stories from industry leaders across the globe.

“Even though these men and women are exceptional in their achievements and successes, they are also humans and that is what people want to relate with. They want to know that they can also achieve exceptional results no matter where they start from”.

With the guests who have featured so far in the show, it is no exaggeration to say that only the top crop in any industry get to share their exceptional stories with the large audience who are eager to learn and make a difference in their space and their world.
