''And when someone tells you that it is not possible for poor and or black village boys/girls, who are presently attending deprived early schools, to take on the rest of the world and compete at the highest level, please humbly rebuff him or her. With dedicated, hard and smart work backed by God’s grace and favour, it is POSSIBLE to excel!'' he added.

The outspoken broadcaster emphasised that:

''I know because I am a living witness, just like some other remarkable African students before me'' and urged people who are better positioned in society to offer help to brilliant but needy students struggling to pay their fees.
''And where you find a brilliant but needy student struggling to pay his or her fees, offer a helping hand (if you can) just like other guardian angels have done for me and others. Sometimes, all it takes is a quick phone call to someone who has the means to help. Please do it today and help create a ‘living human inspiration’ tomorrow,'' he said.
