At a young age Oqim became obsessed with movies, often making up games based on characters with his friends, occasionally reciting famous film quotes. In 2013 Oqim lost his Father, Step Brother and Grand Father within one year. Although heartbroken, it inspired Oqim to follow in his dreams of being an actor. This inspiration lead to the production of his first independent film, “Indian Times” which he self produced in 2016. In 2017, Oqim participated with Wapkikoni Mobile for the first, but surely not the last time.
