Jenny: How was growing up and what are some of the remarkable things about it you can remember?
My growing up was a bit tough and challenging because of the financial capacity of my parents. I struggled through Schools, but thank God for His Grace that saw me through. I also thank God for my parents, though not rich, but they were very caring and God fearing. They taught me the way of the Lord at an early age and laid a good foundation for me to follow.
Jenny: How has any of these experiences contributed to who you have become today?
It was the godly foundation laid for me by my parents that really influenced me and sharpened me to do what I am doing right now -Worshiping God with my talent and impacting lives positively. Also, what I went through, the toughness of my experience at an early age really helped me to discover myself and be a responsible man.
Jenny: Do you think born male gave you an advantage during your upbringing?
I think so. (laughs)
The 'ruggedity' and agility of being a male child has really helped me this far.
Jenny: Nice. Can you explain how?
Sure! There is this natural strength and freedom you enjoy by being a Male child. You are permitted to do certain things as a boy without the fear of being molested or taken advantage of. All these surely helped me a lot in discovering who I am and what I am born to do early enough. I was exposed to life on time and discovered my purpose on time.
Jenny: What aspect of your work do you earn a living by?
I am a Rhymer/Spoken word Artiste, MC and also an On Air Personality (OAP) with Love FM 104.5, Abuja - Nigeria. I equally just started a Monthly Event, "MOMENT WITH HAYWHY DE RHYMER," and somehow fully into Creative Art/Entertainment.
