He told Legit.ng:

"I’m based in Lagos. I learnt shoemaking at a skill acquisition program organized by my Church in 2016. It was a three week program. I furthered my skills in 2020 during the lockdown. Also worked with a professional shoemaker for a while to learn some things. But consistency and determination played a huge role in my growth."
