What’s going on! My name is Vic Oyedeji (pronounced: vic o-ye-day-jee) and I currently co-run The Mo’ Better Life — a blog that promotes health, business, and financial literacy. I’m the author of 2 eBooks on finance & business, which you can get from our shop here.
In 2018, I founded Dubata, an online course platform that focuses on tech, finance, business, and health. I currently teach several online courses on the platform.
I’m also the founder of Unstripped Voice, a popular website I created in 2016 that showcases rare-Black history videos not taught in schools. Unstripped Voice currently has over 550,000 Facebook followers to date.
In 2017 & 2018 I created 2 national online petitions on change.org which gained over 300,000 total signatures. The petitions (centered around the NFL’s treatment of Colin Kaepernick) allowed me to speak on TIME, Billboard, The Independent, LA Times, The New Yorker, and more.
In 2015 – 2016 I was a QA Analyst (aka Software Tester) for several Fortune 500 companies, including Xerox. I helped test software by developing test cases, creating defects for failed test cases, ran automation scripts, and mentored fellow testers.
And before all that, I was a saxophone artist who went by the name Mr. V-Sax. I was also a music producer, audio engineer, and musician for 19 years (1996 – 2015).
During that time, I produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered around 500 songs for myself and other artists, recorded 9 saxophone albums, played at over 75 weddings, and toured with my former band V-Sax and the Crew.
Born and raised in Houston, TX, I received my Bachelor’s degree in 2009 from Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, OK.
I currently live in Durham, North Carolina with my wife Charity, a Hematologist at Duke University (and fellow co-founder at The Mo’ Better Life).
