Well, there are new updates on the young man.

More interesting are the details of his lifestyle he shared that bagged him a 5.0 CGPA. He noted that “you don’t have to be a genius to get the results of a genius”.
These are some of the things he shared;
- “I did private tutoring for my colleagues and my juniors while in school and they paid me for it. It was useful for me even in my own academics. I got the advantages both academically and financially,
- I was a social person throughout school. I attended birthday parties, cinemas, I had so many movies on my laptop and I was sharing them with my colleagues, as I was sharing notes as well.
- “I have fond memories. I was the head of my final year planning committee for dinners, symposium, and was involved in a lot of other things
- I had close friends but I did not want to have to deal with a lot of things at the same time. I was working and schooling. You don’t have to be a genius to get the results of a genius. Just target excellence always.
