AbujaNow caught up with him to know what if feels like turning 40.
Being 40years feels new and also feels like I am getting old hahahahaha. I used to see this 40th mark as a long thing to attain. I feel NEW
We then sort to know what his life journey has been like so far. The highs and the lows.
WOW I have had some low moments in my life. Chief of it was when life became difficult for my dad, and I had to go and become an apprentice (onwa boy) in Lafia, Nasarawa state. Fabricating aluminum sliding windows and doors. It was a low moment for me because I was living a life I was not used to. This was a life outside all the freedom and enjoyment and entitlements I had in my father’s house.
That singular experience changed my life forever and that was when I discovered and started harnessing my speaking and talking skills. There is always a process to a product and that process made me the man I am today.
My high moment in life was when I graduated from kaduna Polytechnic and also served my country as a youth corp member in Kaduna state. This was after paying my way through school doing aluminum jobs and sometimes, menial jobs to feed. I became the first male graduate in my Father’s lineage because, prior to that time, village people will not allow any male in my father’s lineage go through school. That jinx was broken forever.
I have decided to dedicate my life to encouraging and inspire young talented folks by making them know and believe that their talent can become a trade that can make them famous and fulfilled. If I can succeed against all odds they can
GOING FORWARD I WANT TO MAKE MONEY, LOADS OF IT. KEEP MYSELF IN SHAPE THROUGH CONSTANT EXERCISES AND LASTLY STAY CREATIVE.
MY FINAL WORD; NEVER NEVER NEVER GIVE UP
