I was born in Lagos, Nigeria in a town called Efon-alaaye, Somolu, I am a Christian. I grew up in different parts of Lagos and I attended Yaba College of Technology to study art and the Musical Society of Nigeria for graded music study. I teach arts and I love to paint, I can also use different materials to make my artworks. I produce and teach music too, I make beats. I paint from personal experiences and from the things around me, I can also paint from my musical compositions. I would love to tell the story about Africa, Nigeria and myself to the world by my artworks, this is me Ismail Temidire Samuel (T'dire).
