“When I lost my mom it was very difficult for my family. The following month my dad lost his job. It was very tough for my family and my sister. We had to work hard to sell bottled water in the streets of Lagos, just to put food on the table. To support our dad.
“Growing up was very tough for me but I’m happy all those things happened. It shaped me to be the person I am today. You can see on the pitch, I never give up, regardless of the outcome of the game”
“I can say I’m a warrior. I really fight for everything, because I’ve been fighting for my life. It is my trademark to keep fighting”
“When you work hard, you fight, you stay positive, you’ll get to where you want to be.”
