It was only after coming out of prison on my fourth and last time that I realised my family had stood by me all this time. In December , I admitted myself into Highpoint. Anson former Highpoint director , whom I first met while in prison, also encouraged me to share my life story with others in similar situations. I have always been interested in cooking and used to work as a kitchen helper for 10 years after my National Service.
I love to cook for others and always welcome feedback on how I can improve my skills. I am extremely grateful to the Chefs at the Academy for giving me the opportunity to learn and turn my life around for the better.

You are known to have studied mass communication in school, are there times you envy colleagues who are in main stream journalism?
I know I am going insane. What makes a healthy relationship? Refrain from posting comments that are obscene, defamatory or inflammatory, and do not indulge in personal attacks, name calling or inciting hatred against any community. Start by starting.

There was never a time for me to regret my decision to go into music at the expense of journalism because I have always known I would go into music and I remember that mum, just like any other typical Nigerian parent, used to tell me at the time, that I should try to get a job now that I was done with university so as to have some work experiences?
