I was born in Benin City, did my primary school here, and then moved to Agbor Delta state to stay with my sister for about 2years (Jss 2 – 3). After my junior waec, I moved back to Benin to live with my parents.
I finished secondary school at Travis Christian College, Benin. 2015
Growing up, I loved dancing and drawing and writing, I loved art, but I was in sciences. I got Jammed a couple of times by JAMB right before I got admission in 2018, and I am currently in 400L at the University of Benin.
I am not from a wealthy family, so I started working at a very young age before I got into school. I started a business in 2017 selling clothes cause I had to save up for school to assist my parents. Upon admission and getting into school, I figured balancing school and business was something I had to deal with, and it was not easy. It, however, turned out it was a good challenge for me. And it did not stop me from exploring other opportunities to learn, make money and improve myself in general.

At the time, I had realized my creative talent, and I was working with a group of friends on a youtube channel called Naija React. I was keen to create something that would help me express myself and show the world my creativity. Basically, I was eager to blow up, lol.
So one afternoon, I stumbled on a post by garyvee holding a sign, and I just thought, I should do this. My friends were like, yeah, you should, so I got some cardboard and wrote things I wanted to say. lol
and KABOOM, it blew up!
