According to the multiple award-winning artiste, “Growing up in Efikuma, the only source of entertainment is playing football and that explains why we have lots of parks around.” He added he hates to see talents go to waste.”
“I hate to see talents go to waste, like people playing without any push from nowhere. I motivate them by buying them football boots though they’re not signed, I tried to push them and later I decide to take it to the next level so I decided to make it a football team so I know they are under my care”.
