about why he built his house in the Okokomiko area of Lagos;

I have my privacy because I have my own house now. I tell people that if you like what you see in Lekki, Magodo or Victoria Island, you can recreate it wherever you stay. That is what I did. Okokomaiko is not a place you should be afraid of living. Even in Lekki that we think is a place for the rich alone, there are some parts of the area that are not nice.I was born on the streets, so I cannot be harassed. I walk freely without fear. I also go to the field to play football with friends in the evening. The reason bad things happen to people is that their minds are full of evil. My belief is that anything you think of would come to pass in your life. In anything I do in life, I always look at the positive side.Okokomaiko is where I choose to live; it is my plan. If God asks me to move, I will surely move. For now, this is where I love and I believe being in the area gives hope to people. I organise a monthly programme tagged, Street Praise, where we come together to praise and thank God. We dance and encourage each other. I just love the place. I feel there is something about that area that makes people work hard. I am not interested in living in Lekki or Magodo for now. When the time comes, I will go there.
