Aziz Adeshina: So far so good what do you think has been your Greatest Achievement so far
Brendan Nsikak: I can’t say because I have not reach where am going, as individual still very far as Brand Brendance and crusader we are on the mark as Nigeria international supermodel we are just three but we have reach somewhere where many have not reach in many years
Aziz Adeshina: So are u saying the sky is your limit?
Brendan Nsikak: Starting point
Aziz Adeshina: NISM Nigeria International Supermodel. Am i right?
Brendan Nsikak: Yes Sir which has grown to be a Brand of its own now and her product is Mr & Miss Nigeria International powered by Brendance. And crusader ltd

Aziz Adeshina: So what you are trying to say is you always stand out among the rest?
Brendan Nsikak: u said so, our work speaks we don’t compete but our works and the name Brendan Speak volume Globally
Aziz Adeshina: Hmm. Interesting, Mr Brendan, in one Word, what is that very thing that makes you different from other Showbiz and Pageantries out there?
Brendan Nsikak: Big one, i think it is the content we produced. And this is what I studied I did not come into as others did; I did Beauty pageantry, poise and etiquette, catwalk and Event Planning and Management. And beside I have a strong Theatre background
Aziz Adeshina: Nice one sir
Brendan Nsikak: Thank u sir
Aziz Adeshina: You made me realize you have been in this game for 12 years now?
Brendan Nsikak: Yes sir, since my first job Miss Nigeria 2003
Aziz Adeshina: Do you think you have made an Impact, or set a standard as a Brand Ambassador and as an Entrepreneur?
Brendan Nsikak: yes because looking at those that have pass through my hand. They can’t be compared with others. They are Classy, Poise and Well Behaved and they are doing well in their different field. and I have trained. a lot I’m different field of event and theatre they own their own outfit now and are doing well which is my joy
Aziz Adeshina: Do u see yourself as an inspiration to others in the showbiz world?
Brendan Nsikak: Yes, Due to respond and respect they do have for the name and I love it and I can’t let them down
Aziz Adeshina: Being in the game for 12 years now, Do u think the Nigerian Entertainment Industry has improved?
Brendan Nsikak: Yes it has it only that a lot Medicrocy are so much, those who has no biz there are even the one gaining ground making it difficult for Brands to support us because when a Brand drops money, they expect result, unfortunately they can’t get because those who get the money has no biz in the market and when u approach them, it takes grace for u to get their attention but when that happens the sky is your starting point because they will realize what they have missed.
