Going down memory lane, the nollywood actor who is Abeokuta, Ogun State born narrated his struggles to make a mark in acting and how he had been discouraged and insulted several times before coming to limelight.

He said, “The journey and story of my life was never smooth but this Abeokuta-born and Lagos-bred boy never gave up!
I was just an helpless young boy who does his things and make people laugh unintentionally, to the point that I was picked up in secondary school by a non governmental organisation whose main aim is to train young people majorly through acting, dance and music. Memories of when I gained admission into the university and still didn’t give up, I remember the days I skipped classes to follow this dream of mine, to the year I graduated from UNI 2007/2008 , this stubborn boy still didn’t give up .

“Memories of the days I borrowed money to go on movie set, borrow clothes to wear on set even though I wasn’t getting paid, I remember begging for money and food to survive. Memories of the multiple times I got rejected, insulted, ridiculed and bullied that acting is not my career path and that I’ll never make it in this field that I choose. I remember the times I almost gave up on myself and the career, I remember crying endlessly and told myself it’s better to die.
