2. My dream career as a youngster was to become a performing artist. However my mum, God rest her soul would hear none of it. She wanted me to work in an office and dress 'corporate' like them banker babes and would always tease me whenever i come back from all nite dance or music rehearsals. Hahahaaa...mummy of life!


3.  Although I am Urhobo from Abraka in Delta state, Uruovie to be precise; i do not speak my native language. Don't blame me though, my dad was an 'ajebutter' "Don't speak vernacular in my house" kinda guy. Lol

4. My mum died of breast cancer in 2003 at the age of 53 after battling the disease for 2 years. She was not alive to see me dress 'corporate' when i started working in the banking industry. Rest in peace mummy.

8.  My dream vacation spot is Rome. I have read a lot of books and watched so many documentaries   about the Romans that I know I'll surely get goosebumps when I visit the place. God, before my next birthday would be a great time to fulfill this dream, don't you think? (In Jesus's name I pray. Amen!)

9.  I grew up in Ibadan so i speak Yoruba language very fluently. Proverbs, adages and all.

14. I hardly get angry but when i do, i erupt like a volcano. one funny childhood memory;

I attended a boarding school during my high school days and if you are a Nigerian border you know garri is bae right? So during one of the holidays in my JSS 3, it was raining and my mum used to warn me about garri and cold. My creative young mind then figured out , "if i use hot water to drink the garri instead of cold water i would be fine." So I poured my sugar and peanut into my cup of garri then poured in HOT water. It didn't quickly occur to me why my garri was becoming eba-like....hahahahaaa
