It all started with a rebellious move by a certain young man in Hämeenlinna, Finland. A daring move that disrupted the social norms of the society. Michael Ekeghasi also known as "ME" was born in Nigeria into a poor and humble home. Since childhood, Michael has always been passionate about music and all things related to it, but growing up in a society where kids, for socio-economic reasons, are only expected to go to school, get good grades and secure a "professional" job, discouraged him from following his true passion. 

 

After acquiring a bachelors degree in automation engineering, two failed jobs and a long frustrating period of job search, Michael finally summoned up some courage and decided to turn to his passion and first love - Music. Against the expectations and societal pressure on him to find a "real" job, he chose to do what he loves and he loved It.

 

In addition to a strong passion for making good music, Michael has a strong desire to be entrepreneurial in his approach to exploring his passion to the fullest. Fascinated by entrepreneurial ideas and the world of possibilities they create, he set out to established Originax, a company whose mission is to create and develop premium musical related products and services with emphasis on quality and originality.

 

Originax as a company is also committed to encourage and support young talented people globally especially from low income background, who desire to follow their passion and dreams to a professional level. When asked why the company has undertaken such initiative, the company founder said, "Because we strongly believe that you can be happy and successful when you stay true to yourself and do those things you love and are most passionate about. Be Originax!
