ENDDY SUNNY-UDJOR is a graduate of Mass Communication from Delta State University, Abraka and the CEO of NIOC Studios (A Subsidiary of Enddyvisuals Ltd) with 10 employees on her payroll. She hails from Okpe Local Government Area. Enddy is passionate about filmmaking, entertainment and public enlightenment through her documentaries which focus mainly on comparing the African culture with other parts of the world. She is also the publisher of #Wadoo Magazine! She is a presenter, a director and a producer.
Enddy’s success story started after eight years of unemployment before she got the opportunity to be trained in the STEP programme in the 2016/2017 cycle in Audio-Visual Services. She has since taken her business beyond photography to product branding, photo books production, framing, photo/video editing, documentary production, magazine publishing and event coverage. She has also transformed into an OAP (On Air Personality).
She has trained so many persons. Some for free as part of her contribution to the society. She has also acquired more film making gadgets and equipment, making her photography and cinematography business easier.
Hear her, “NIOC Studios handled some of the projects that supported the second term electoral campaign of Governor Okowa such as “Okpe Beneficiaries of STEP/YAGEP, iTestify and a short commentary on the contributions of the Governor to the development of the people of Delta State, particularly the Okpe people. Thank God it was a success. I also covered Governor Okowa’s Town Hall Meeting with the youths and elders of Okpe people in Orerokpe, and the Walk with Role Model/Community Service organized by the Directorate for Youth Monitoring and Mentoring (DYMM) for STEP/YAGEP beneficiaries in Uvwie.”
Continuing, she said” “I see myself having a full academy that will partner with the State Government and higher institutions to get more youths off the streets and to train them in Cinematography and Photography. This will be the first of its kind in Okpe. This is my calling and Gov. Okowa has made my dream to come true. He did not only make me self-employed, most importantly, he made me a job creator.”
