#InsideDA is a laid-back bi-weekly series where you get to meet the Staff of Digital Abundance- bants, experiences and vibes. We discuss their relationship with money, tips for financial freedom and other fun anecdotes.

Please tell us more about yourself, Ose!

My name is Osemudiamen. Everyone calls me Ose, and I’m a software developer. For now, I’m a consultant with a company in the US. I wouldn’t say I like calling myself a freelancer, lol, so I’m a consultant with a company in the US called Buildlab. I’m with them contractually, and we build code and no-code applications. Before that, I worked in technical support for two years and four months with Michelin before switching to Software Development. A consultant living in Nigeria and earning in dollars? You’re living the dream! What was your first experience like receiving your salary? See, it was hell at first. When I first started working with Buildlab, we spent a whole day figuring out how I’ll receive my remunerations. I tried several fintech companies that day. I even tried one that people had vouched for, but I realised they had a different rate for receiving and sending that is very different. It was terrible.

Did you try another alternative?

At some point, we also wanted to try cryptocurrency. I also wanted to try a top-rated fintech company based in the US, but I went down a rabbit hole of people complaining about them, so I didn’t bother myself.

How did you eventually hear about us?
