Since working as a media manager for the Nigerian professional club Heartland where he spearheaded the growth of the club’s digital community, Jidechi has grown through the ranks, and most recently, was a Senior Football Reporter, for the sports wing of multinational African media giants, Pulse.

He currently serves as the Head of Operations for the League Bloggers Awards, a body whose responsibility goes beyond honouring top-performing players in the Nigeria leagues, to promoting their talents beyond the country's borders.

When not analysing football issues for national broadcasters, Jidechi is spending his time catching up on political issues, discussing geography, lifestyle (particularly food and travel) or current affairs-based topics with friends or binging on the newest top movies.
