“Mr Okada” Nigeria’s Fastest Growing Mobile Game With A Modern Touch
Mr Okada is one of Nigeria’s fastest growing mobile games, made for Nigerians, by a Nigerian; with a world-class appeal. The game is basically about an Okada man (motorbike driver) on a mission to achieve his dreams.
Something similar to the story of most Nigerians at the lower-class level, Mr Okada is a hard working hustler who has taken on several jobs to make ends meet. He started off as a mechanic and eventually saved enough money to purchase an Okada (motorbike) to add to his monthly income.
Toks Asher is a renowned artist manager, writer & PR strategist. He’s a brand ambassador of Mr Okada and also features in the game. The BuzzNigeria crew were lucky to have caught up with Toks off his very busy schedule and he was kind enough to explain to us more on the game and the brains behind it.
