This will go well for those who understand Igbo language. He is surely an inspiration and I felt the need to promote this son of the soil. What stood out for me is that he said his children (males and females) who are all University graduates are now doing the same line of business and making a living out of it, owing to the fact that there are no jobs in Nigeria.

He also said that he believes that if ever there is something called reincarnation, he will return back to this line of job along side his love for music.

The entire family has gone from making a living out of this trade from Mother, father, and children, to making it so successful that they have had a high number of apprentices pass through them to become their own bosses. A business tradition best known amongst the Igbo nation of Nigeria.

What I got from this man right here that got me inspired, is that he is loves his handwork alot. He added that handwork will always surpass schooling and white collar jobs, because with handwork, you can do that Jon until the day you drop dead, whereas who collar jobs will always need to be employed before they can perform that line of duty.

I love it. Thank you to BBCnewsigbo for this inspirational documentary.
