On inspiring Nigerian youths:
“To be honest, I cannot say what it was that stood me out of the thousands that came out that day, at the MTV VJ search… I honestly did not think I had a chance. I actually just wanted to try it out and enjoy the experience. I came in with zero expectations, and I left as the winner. It was crazy, to be honest. So, I would just say, be open to opportunities – you never know what life could bring your way.”
On giving back to the younger generation:
“I want to achieve more beyond just being a VJ… I feel like as human beings, we are all gifted with the capacity to do it all. I am very proud of the success of my clothing brand – ‘Dadaboydrik’ and my school outreach initiative. We just started the clothing brand a few years ago, and the community project this year, so seeing the progress made in this short time is very inspiring… I want to change the perspective that many kids have today through the life I live.”
