In a BBC News Pidgin interview, the Akwa Ibom indigene said that he is the only qualified, recognised, and educated agidi person, selling educated agidi.
In a part of the video, the man showcased his business as he said he offers a balanced diet with his food, revealing all the nutrients in it.

The 22-year-old stated that he dresses well as a part of a grand plan to attract customers. He added that once you like his dressing, you would want to taste what he is hawking. When he noticed that his business was growing, he thought up that plan as a way to rebrand it.
Many laughed at me
He revealed that when he started speaking English as a strategy, his use of the spoken language was not good until he perfected it.
Moses said that the first time he started dressing corporately, he was laughed out by his neighbour as he swam in shame. He said he kept at it because he thought to himself; why should he shy away from something that gives him money.
