Activism

Og is bringing a spirit of adventure to Challenge 100. He is undertaking a series of personal challenges to raise awareness of Challenge 100 and to bring attention to the importance of the projects.

Og’s first challenge was learning to swim – a skill that meant he was able to become the first person in history to attempt to Jet-ski the entire coast of Nigeria.

He then went on a tough fitness regime, ready to take part in the Strive Challenge to cycle and hike across Europe.

Og has just completed a back-to-back skydive and scuba dive at the North Pole.

Family

Og and his wife Joy are devoted to their two daughters, and have involved the girls in community work from a young age.

Og and Joy want the girls to grow up with a sense of responsibility for their actions and an understanding of their impact in the world. Challenge 100 is a fantastic opportunity to show them how simple actions can bring lasting change.

Legacy

Og’s father was Sir Lawrence C Amazu, a man whose life was a lesson in ‘can do’ spirit. Sir Lawrence started work as a mechanic, and went on to build a hugely successful, diverse business that eventually gave birth to amazoil which Og bought in 2001.

He lived a fulfilled life, serving God and humanity, and Challenge 100 is a fitting tribute to his life and work.
