Back To My Root; How it all started.
“Back to my root” as the name implies, simply means going and giving back to the society. Mostly, at the grass root level. It is a programme he initiated to create positive impact at the grass root level, in Nigeria. Initially, it was focused on uplifting and empowering youths at the grass root level, particularly those who picked interest in entertainment but this year, he intends to expand the scope of the programme to accommodate and address other pressing needs of the people at the grass root level.
