Speaking to, Oluchi said:

"It was during lockdown. The lockdown caught me up in Eboyin school. My family's house is in Lagos. I wasn't able to get home to Lagos because there were no interstate travels. I was here lonely. I was not able to go to school. I thought it was just something that will just last for few days. Few days turned to weeks and months.
"I said I can't waste this. I had to check for handwork that wasn't popular amongst my gender. This was just one of the ideas that were not regular among the females. That way, there will be lesser competition. I paid someone N60k to learn. I have an apprentice now. People come to learn. Students that are waiting to write JAMB, WAEC. The person managing the store for me at the moment is a 'corper.'"
