BBC One’s The Apprentice is back with a brand new series.
Lord Sugar, Claude Littner and Karren Brady are ready to argue with, judge and point fingers at the 15 remaining contestants.
In episode 1 (Wednesday, October 3rd) we said goodbye to Sarah Byrne.
Of the 15 remaining contestants, we have Kayode Damali. Here are seven things you didn’t know about Kayode!
Kayode is Well Qualified
Kayode graduated from university in 2013.
He achieved a first class honours degree in psychology from the Manchester Metropolitan University.
Not only that, but he was either a rep for or got involved in 12 societies while at uni!
He is a Fitness Fanatic
In Kayode’s The Apprentice interview, he said:
Don’t be fooled but under this is like a body of a god.
And he actually wasn’t joking.
In 2015 Kayode attended summer camp in Pennsylvania, U.S.A where he worked as a weights and fitness specialist.
Plus, his Instagram is packed full of healthy dinners and workouts.
Kayode is an MC
On Kayode’s LinkedIn, he describes himself as a speaker, promoter and MC.
He previously worked as nightlife events organiser at CheshirEnts.
He arranged Freshers and Refreshers events for university students in the North West.
Now, Kayode’s main job is working as a motivational speaker.
Kayode Damali is on Tinder
From the looks of Kayode’s CV, he’s probably too busy to be a ladies man, although he is on a dating app!
Kayode said: “On my Tinder bio, I describe my smile as being able to charge the national grid because that’s what I’ve been told it can do.”
Well, if all else fails, maybe he could get a girlfriend out of The Apprentice.
His Name is Very Significant
The name Kayode means “he brought joy” in Yoruba.
And since Kayode is a full-time motivational speaker, his name is pretty apt.
He also does a lot of volunteering and charity work, including working at The British Heart Foundation and helping out at his local youth club.
He is One of the Youngest on The Apprentice
Kayode Damali is 26 years old.
He’s from Cheshire but has done a lot of travelling in his life – although perhaps he doesn’t always agree with how they do things across the pond.
Kayode is an Avid Reader
Like most successful people, Kayode knows knowledge is power.
The Power of Now, Duncan Bannatyne’s Anyone Can Do It and The Motivation Manifesto are just some of the books he’s finished.
Could we see him on Dragons’ Den one day?
