Growing up as a young lad I was very stubborn and strong this endeared me so much with my father , coupled with the fact that I was the only one in the family who yielded to his beckoning that we his children should join his church (Anglican) choir.
Life was just whatever comes you take it.
Lost my dad at about 16 barely through with my secondary education, then left home town Ogwashi uku for Benin city where i started working with NEPA (PHCN) life was still whatever comes , thank God for my elder sister who kept acting like my mother while away from home .
As a young electrician then with NEPA I came in contact with one Mrs Kpere Daibo of Church of God mission faith Arena Benin city.
From the electrical mentainance assistance I regularly gave to her bakery then behind stadium, we became friends and I got yet another mother. As we got along she introduced me to Church of God Mission where I got born again and received the Holy Spirit in 1986 and had a personal relationship with the late Bishop Benson Idahosa.
Then I got into the music group where I worked with Osene Odia . Though then I had known about the group called Youth for Christ if I can still remember the name very well but I never thought I would one day be here.
A day came after I had stayed at home for over 3 months without going for fellowship in my former church and I just walked into Christ Embassy East West Road 1 church of Rumuodara group in 2009 September and from then my life has been awesome , from glory to glory praise God.
