This was mentioned by Oprah in a Tea With Tay audio conversation with Taymesan, during which she talked about her early years and how, following the passing away of her father, she was forced to live in barracks in Abuja.

She said, “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.”
