She has denounced the popular cliche that education is a scam. She told Punch Newspapers:
"I dropped out of school in JSS1. I went to learn tailoring and I became a fashion designer. I had my shop and I was there for some time until I met my boyfriend then now my husband. I think he was able to see in me what I did not see in myself. He felt there is something in me that shouldn't just be buried. He took it upon himself to send me back to school. I had to start from the scratch. And here I'm today."
