In regards to how he became an actor, here's what he had to say:
"Hmmm…divine direction! Initially I wasn’t looking to be an actor, I wanted to be a Pilot and my mum objected to it because at a time I was an only child for twelve years before the other one came. My father was with me on that one but I lost him in 2000. By the time I got into school, I changed direction. I met a family friend who told me there was an audition going on for actors. He believed so much in my ability, so when I got there I registered with Actors Guild Of Nigeria (AGN). I started going for auditions and that was it."
