From a cattle herder on the border with Uganda, Ojiko has now come to be one of the most well-respected craftsmen in Kenya. Ojiko has never received a formal primary education, he requires that one speak with him in Kiswahili or his tribal language, Luo; however, he has honed his craft training over many years beginning with technical training in welding, and later in silversmithing and woodworking. He has served many apprenticeships in the jewelry industry; including brass, bone and horn crafts; prior to branching out on his own in 2011. Ojiko is a jack of all trades and master of the same.
