My true passion is music.– Tobi Abolade
Tobi Abolade attends Loyola University New Orleans. He is a senior majoring in Psychology with a minor in Music Industries. Abolade needed a job that worked well with his schedule as a college student. Abolade was able to achieve that and financial security with Uber. He started working for Uber and DoorDash around December of 2021 while attending classes throughout the week. Abolade started his journey with the companies in his hometown, Montgomery, Alabama, and continued working for the companies while living in New Orleans. Abolade found that working for Uber was more lucrative and spent his time mainly working for that company. However, Abolade’s real passion is music. Over the last year, he has taken his music career seriously and started producing beats drawing inspiration from a wide range of music interests. He looks forward to becoming a well known producer one day, but for now, Uber will always be a great source of income for him.
