“I do chores; the once that interest me. I love food a lot. There is no food I cannot eat and once I crave a certain food, I cook it. I don’t place myself in a situation where someone would hold me to ransom by denying me food. You can do that with anything but if you try it with food, I can cry. I love food immeasurably. I thank God that I can cook anything. My mother taught me how to cook,” he said.

He told Saturday Beats that people often believed that he would be as dumb as the Okon character he plays in movies but that they are usually surprised to find out that he is a smart person. He said that despite the misconception, he has no point to prove to anyone that he is smart.
