When you talk to Toluwalase, you have to say his entire name. No T, no Tolu (unless you’re family), and definitely not “guy with the dreads”. Growing up in Lagos, Nigeria Toluwalase saw the business end of a teacher’s ruler for being disruptive. But when he moved to the States and he learned teachers weren’t (legally) allowed to beat students…the disruptions got worse. He managed to turn it around and now does all he can to give back to the community in the form of opportunities for creatives, and charity for those in need.
