The 28-year-old Chukwuebuka Emmanuel said he was working as a laundry man at that time.

“In 2020, my salary was 15k. By 2021, it had doubled to 30k,” he told HipTv.

Describing his 2020 job, he said, “I was working in a laundry after just gaining admission. Alongside the laundry job, I explored various other ventures”.

“In my first year, I sold doughnuts in class,” the Imo State-born said. “In the second year, I sold bedbug killer at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), and in my third year, I drove to school.”

With these lessons from a humble beginning, Chukwuebuka has a piece of advice for fans and people generally.
