He intimated that he was told veteran gospel musician Sinach used to carry him when he was young.

I want them to know it is possible for them to be successful,” .
Patoranking, the family’s firstborn, said that it became increasingly important for him to set a good example for his younger siblings and demonstrate to them that things would fall in the right place.
