When asked what fame has robbed him of the ace comedian simply said:
“I have been robbed of my privacy and the freedom I had. The fact that I must be very careful with everything I say and do is a bit of a pressure. However, I wouldn’t trade the journey for anything. I won’t change a thing.”
On the robbery incident that occurred about two weeks ago, he said:
“I will rather not talk about the robbery incident because it is in the past now. I just thank God nobody was hurt. My kids were asleep throughout the incident so that is something to really thank God for as the trauma would have messed them up for a while.”
The dreadlock wearing comic act also spoke about his intention to release a movie very soon.
His words: “I have had to put my music career to rest for now as I have a lot of projects before me but soon, I will revisit it. Also, I have been working on a movie for a while now, but due to time constraint, I have not been able to start production but I will do so soon though.”
He added: “I feel blessed because I know that the life we have can be taken for granted sometimes. I always thank God for every second, minute, hour, day, month and year I witness. Turning 38 is amazing and I pray that God will continue to bless me with more years in great health, happiness, favour and more. I thank God for everything especially when I look back to where I am coming from, it is really humbling where God has placed me and where he is taking me to. I am grateful for everything.
“I am good at making low points become high points. In everything that comes my way, I always thank God while believing that there is a reason for it. The ability to embrace everything in good faith and never backing down or getting distracted is one thing I think I am good at.”
