    Awwww. I’m so proooouuudd of him!!
    Gosh so very glad. I remember when we invited him to a graduation event dinner a few years ago and as students we could only appreciate it with small money. Though he said he won’t perform, he put up an appearance and posed with us for pictures but he was so gracious about it and eventually said a few words.

    He’s come a long way and will go further and higher in Jesus name. God bless you and your hustle man! #betterPikin #goodNigerian.
