Look at Choco 17yrs ago (2years before Nollywood/African Queen video). Wow😇 I have grown. I look at this picture with tears in my eyes, looking back at different stages of my life and all my struggles.

Wow, to think there was a time I had no house/roof over my head, at ojuelegba under bridge at 2am with a little bag hanging under my arm (@femibrainard69do you remember?).. Thanks to Shola aka Shaggy Dread who opened @ogidantadeOGD studios for me to lay my head for those weeks (I had to wait till everyone left the studio, or was sleeping before I came knocking on the window.

Look at me now #Choco.
This picture brings memories. LASU days, as a law student we had to wear white and black everyday (hence the white top) to class. But bia, where did my eye brows go? My struggles only made me who I am. I have never been scared/ashamed of where I am or where I am coming from, but I’m certainly SURE of where I am going… #ChocoRules
