Makinde Azeez was born on December 10th, 1989, in Lagos, Nigeria, to a family of two, with his younger brother named Abdullahi. He grew up in Ajegunle, Apapa, and attended Ekum College, Amukoko, in Lagos for his secondary education. Makinde proceeded to Lagos State Polytechnic (Laspotech) in Ikorodu, where he studied Computer Science for his ND (National Diploma). Due to his passion for blogging, he could not go back for his HND.
He gained admission to Osun State University (Uniosun) in Osogbo in 2011 to study physics, but due to his busy schedule, he spent an extra year making five years and finished everything in 2016.
Makinde’s passion for the internet and web design led him to become a successful blogger. He started working on the web and attended a six-month training course on Web design in Ikeja. He got interested in configurations, proxies, cracking, network tricks, and more, which led him to launch Naijaloaded on October 1st, 2009, with a free hosting plan and free domain name.
In 2011, Makinde gained admission to Uniosun to study physics, a challenging course, and he knew he needed a partner to run the blog. One of his cousins, Lateef, joined him in posting music and reaching out to upcoming artists, while Makinde handled the Technology and Educational aspects of the blog. Lateef, however, had to stop working on the site in 2012 when he gained admission into an institution outside Nigeria.
In January 2013, Makinde attended a Three-month course on Ethical Hacking at Innobuzz on Victoria Island. He completed the White hat training but put it on a low key due to the illegality of hacking in Nigeria. Makinde met Dele and Timi in 2013, and the three of them were able to move on and start new things, including introducing new content on Naijaloaded.
Six months after graduating from the university, Makinde launched Naijaloaded TV in August 2017 to air people’s opinions on events, especially in the Nigerian entertainment industry. Today, Naijaloaded.com.ng averages over 100 million page views per month and has over 25 competent staff working at home and office.
