"I started learning to fix hairs for ladies when I finished my secondary education. My brother was very group at fixing nails, dreadlocks for ladies and it was from him that I learned how to do also.
“It was something strange to me initially and I never wanted to do it; I felt such job was not meant for guys but my brother insisted I should learn in order to be able to earn a living. I became perfect doing it and I don’t regret anything about it.”
"I don’t know where to start because I was really happy when I was called up for the national Under-20 team; this is one of the things I had dreamed about. The first persons I called when I was invited was my mom and my dad and I was really excited and I was so anxious to go the camp to prove myself. It was a great thing of joy for my family and myself."
"I come from a family with eight children; four boys and four girls. The four of us who are boys are playing football. Two are already playing in the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) and I’m the only one playing abroad currently. I have always admired David Luis and I love his style of play; I like the way he puts his soul and body into the game and I also love Achontelli too. It is important for me to always pray before playing a match because I believe all the energy that comes out of me playing is from God. I look up to God for everything because I know he’s the only one that can put blessings upon all I do."
