Udu narrates how he lost his parents in a chat with Legit.ng:
“My Dad died when I was about 2 years old. My mom took me with her to Port Harcourt and there we lived with her step brother and his 3 children. My mom later passed on before I was even 5 years old.
"I grew up with my uncle and I schooled in Port Harcourt along with his three children. When I was 14 years old in 2012, my uncle sent me parking out of his house and back to Delta state because he couldn't accommodate my short comings."
The 24-year old was recently appointed by the Nigerian Youth Congress as its director for youth sensitization and rehabilitation affairs.
Udu attributed his achievements to his works, saying he uses pain to create love for someone out there.
