She stated that she had no other option than to live at Abuja barracks following the death of her dad, since her mum was in the military.
“After my dad’s death, my mother was in the military. So we had to move into the barracks in Abuja to help with accommodation.
“When I went to University of Port Harcourt, my sister and I used to sell recharge cards, pure water and eggs around our side, because there was no closeby kiosk, where you could buy those things so we became the kiosk.
“Honestly, I’m just happy that I went through it because it really shaped me and made me stronger.
“I know what the hustle is, I have seen suffering. So coming out on the other side and being this person is like I understand both worlds,” Kim Oprah said.
