How did you come about slack mouth?
While I was in school, one of my teachers referred to me as ‘You and your slackmouth’ and all my classmate started calling me slackmouth, laughs that was how the name slackmouth sticks till date.
I attended Command Secondary School, Signal Barrack, Mile 2, Lagos. I have a diploma from LASU.
Will you advice your child to be a dancer?
It takes a lot of observations to really know what a child is wired to do, but if I notice traces of dance in my child after education he/she will be allowed to tailor along that career with my acquired skills I will ensure he/she comes out to be the best, as a dance instructor I co-ordinate my dancers.
Have you ever been embarrassed on stage?
Severally but it all depends on the event you find yourself, if the audience are already drunk and only want to hear music and you come to talk they will boo you out of the stage.
So in such scenario what will you do?
As a professional, I quickly adjust to what they want.
