My every day life on stage and off stage has been more or less years of acting experiences for me. Nevertheless i use to write scripts for stage plays in high school and college and also acted lead roles on stage in hi school and college.

Acting my songs out on stage and trying to remember so many lyrics to different songs and wearing the moods of those songs has exposed me to duplicating characters written on paper or screen.

Outside that, i have taking part, produced and directed stage dramas right from when i was a kid up to recent years.

Also, as a Choreographer, song writer, creative director, script writer, stage performer, singer, and a clown i believe having had great commendable experiences in doing the above i should covered the challenges of screen acting.

Modeling

Modeling experience:
  Part-time model - paid commercial work
I have not had much of a profesional modeling experience but believe i have what it takes to perform up to expectations within the cartegoriez i have marked.

I have a natural curly hair that can be shaped into different styles. presently wearing it as an afro. As an artiste i have a sometimes weird but attractive dress sense and have discovered that most time when i look in a particular style fans and unlookers start looking that way.Also i have a slim fit body structure with shoulders that brings out the designs of suites and shirts in a captivating manner. I walk tall with well shaped legs, flat lightly packed tommy, bright eyes, straight nose and fingers you would love to see placed on your table before raising up your head to see the bearer.

I Have writen,produced and performed them songs for modeling and beauty peargents and also performed while striding their runways. This i have done for NNSM(Nigeria's Next Super Model '07'08), MBGN (Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria '07)etc.

I believe i have a face and full body structure that if well directed would be a master piece for print and editorials.

The rest i believe is in the eating. Thanks.

This is were i would say i have achieved most of my commendations being a pioneer of rock music in Nigeria for over a decade. I have had my band(s)since 1995, played live gigs since 1989, written well over 600 songs, play the drums, acoustic and electric guitar, a bit of the piano, bass guitar and mouth harmonica.

I have played major gigs in my country Nigeria and over seas. In the year 1998 just 3 years after i formed my band "Dabyna" now DABYNA Poll-Abraham, we won an Award for Musical Excellence in Nigeria (AMEN '08) in the category for the best band in Nigeria and also wrote, produced and performed the theme songs for the award night that year and in 2001. I have written, composed, performed and produced other theme songs for REEL awards(Movie award), MBGN(Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria '07), NNSM (Nigeria's Next Super Model '07,08), BRECANFA (Breast cancer foundation- song listed on my debut album as "Let's Save the Women"). Also, i have co-writen,produced and performed radio jingles for Starrcoms, Lux beauty soap, Tigre bear etc. Recognised as the first black African rock artist in an international Rock festival(DDRF- Dubai Desert Rock Festival 2008) was at the FIFA world cup 2010 in South Africa.

Though i can very well at ease sing almost all genres of music, professionally, i am a rock singer.

I run a small three piece band that delivers big music for occation and events and a 5piece band depending on the size of the occasion/events and the requirements from clients and also concerts and tours depending on the tour package.

I have been tagged a master showman likened to guitar legends like Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, Angus, Buddy Guy, Michael Jackson etc.

I have the natural strength to play up to 5/6hrs non-stop depending on timing of event and repertoire.

TV & Reality

I have been used to television and camera since i was i kid going to national school debates.

As an entertainer the camera has become a regular feature i have to deal with in interviews, personal coverages in events and concerts and co-presentation.

I am about to start my own indepent program on a cable network as soon as i get approval.

My last TV presentation was the singing of a new year song originally composed by me for Silverbird television in Nigeria, which had repeat broadcast for my suppose excellent delivery.

I have been a dancing since the day i started working and have never,i mean never come second place but first in a dancing competition.

I have the God gifted ability to jump into an already choreographed routine and blend into the dance steps being exibited no matter the tribe, tradition, region, as long as it is a dance i should be capable of doing it. I am a natural dancer.

The only clauses i have is the fact that i don't know how to back flip.

I have been a choreographer since i was in primary school. i have arraged routines and choreography for stage performance also.

In just two words "I DANCE"

Film & Stage Crew

I have always loved photography and have taking and collected shots of myself and others in events, at home and just anywhere. wherever i go i carry a camera with me.

My photograph have been used in many magazines and news papers in my country for editorials, interviews etc.

I have had situations were i would be a special guest in an event where professional camera men were invited to cover the event and the organizers will end up collecting my personal shorts for their usage.

Magazine

I have had series of interviews in magazines bearing my photograph, but not yet had a model shot used for a cover page or front page becuase i just discovered my ability and found the interest in being a professional model.

As a song writer and writer, i believe if given the oppurtunity i would be a good columnist on entertainment, life&style, Youths and Modern tides, the society and its future (the last two bein topics created by me)
