In an exclusive interview with NAIJ.com, the young talented Nigerian from Warri, Delta state, averred that he had been practicing freestyle football juggling since 2005. He noted that he had performed in various shows and competitions within Nigeria.
"Freestyle football is all about creativity, control, style and your imagination. If you want to become a professional football freestyler, you have to work hard. It is my source of living. I do 60% football freestyle and 40% football," he said.
About some of the challenges he has been facing over the years:

"I am just managing the talent because this is Nigeria where there is not enough money to sponsor young talents. So I am just managing myself."
