Honestly, It has not been an easy journey. The saying that nothing good comes easy aptly fits into my experience in this business but in all, God has been faithful.

Do you have any regrets so far? 

Certainly not! I don’t have any regrets.

What challenges are you encountering in your line of entertainment? 

I’m faced with normal challenges as others in the entertainment industry, but I think the most pressing one is the ability to be in different places at the same time, which we know is not possible, coupled with finance, but I’m trying my best.

You must have a project; could you tell us what it is all about?

The project is all about making positive impact, with the desire to give voice to the voiceless, the less privileged, developing the child through moral education aimed at raising morally responsible citizens and finally, involving in entrepreneurial skills through trainings and programmes. You can see that our hands are full.

What do you hope to achieve at the end of the day? 

Our vision has to do with impacting lives positively as I earlier said. At the end of the day, my foundation hopes to achieve just that and that is our philosophy.

How do you juggle your tight schedule with your love life? 

Everything has time. I give everything it’s time. At the end of the day nothing is left out, I manage both things well.

What kind of man would you want to live with? 

I would want to live with a God fearing, humorous, caring, intelligent young man.

What else do you do? 

I am so many things rolled into one. I’m a motivational writer, singer and counselor. I inspire people to do more.

What excites you? 

Working on my passion excites me. I am passionate about impacting lives.

What turns you off? 

I hate dishonesty, lies, lack of integrity, dirt.

Could you tell us more about your foundation?

The foundation started some years though it was formally registered in September 2014. We have been involved in so many humanitarian services. On the 26th and 28th of May 2014, as a way of celebrating children’s day, the foundation visited primary schools within Delta state, gave the students educational materials and encouraged them to be focused. November 30, 2014, the foundation organised the maiden edition of our quiz competition, where we also gave gifts to participating students, all in a bid to encourage the students to be studious and focused. On May 27th 2015, the foundation organized a children’s day party at Labelle event center, Sapele, Delta state to celebrate and put smiles on their faces. We had over 500 kids in attendance, who were fed and entertained. We are calling on everybody to be a part of this vision and support us to continue to impact lives positively. I will like to thank everyone that has supported this vision in any way.
