Oladamola Babalola

Oladamola Babalola also know as Mr. Babz is the CEO/Founder of Freshrb C.I.C. He has been a video production specialist with 13+ years experience in the pre - post production process of any video production project. With his experience as an intern at the BBC in 2008/09, graduating with a Masters in Marketing and being a digital marketing professional, he has been proficient in delivering video production solutions to national and international brands. He has also been skilled in delivering a versatile range of projects from short films to music videos. As a social entrepreneur, he is passionate about seeing a community of people with marginalised life limiting health conditions given a voice through documentaries, short films and other media channels. This all stemmed from when he was diagnosed with cancer (Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma) in 2009. Through his experience with chemotherapy treatment, he built on his passion for video production and further discovered how the process of making videos acted as a therapeutic outlet for him to cope with the illness and also act as a powerful tool to communicate greater ideas to the public.
