Year: 2011 @walexblom should remember this #ubc

First Salary: ₦ 150, 000 upfront then ₦ 30, 000 per month for building & maintaining a portal, 'twas my final year (2013) in school. Then, earning 1k per day for monthly task I usually get done in 3-5 nights coding streak was cool.

10k in 2009 from a job I took up after secondary school. I was a sales attendant in a store like that.


First job was in SS2, Volunteered for the Polio Vaccine and was paid 5000… that was back in 2007

First salary: ₦50,000 (Feb, 2016).


First Salary was N4,000 in 2008.
