Mastering courage, Dave asked his former mate how he ended up being a 'trotro' mate.

According to the friend, he lost both parents after Junior High school, and that was when everything went wrong.

The 'trotro' mate revealed that he passed their final exams with flying colours but there was no one to help.

He needed to cater for his siblings, and had to pick up being a 'trotro' mate after attempts at other street ventures proved futile.

Dave revealed that his former mate was a brilliant student who was always one to top his class.

He was loved by both teachers and students and was eventually elected as school prefect with none competing against him.

Due to how intelligent he was, he participated in interschool quizzes.

Dave said everyone in school was convinced his mate had a great future ahead.
