He made this revelation in an interview with Chude Jideonwo, during which he spoke about his struggles to survive at a time.

Thompson said that in the past, he engaged in various activities, including selling weed and cigarettes, as well as hawking sachet water to make ends meet.

According to him, considering that he had a shop close to where sex workers used, they patronised him.

“I was selling alcohol, weed, cigarettes, and hawking pure water to survive. In the morning, I did the vulcarnising, and shoemaking.

“I had a shop close to sex workers, they were my customers,” the music star told Chude.

Many people praised him for his willingness to share his story, citing it as a source of inspiration and empowerment. It ignited a wave of support and encouragement from diverse online communities.

I.tobiloba: ‘His experience is unique. Only God can write certain scripts. Meanwhile, this is the only podcast that makes sense.”

Olori_Ishola: “The power of God unto salvation. I love hearing stories of saved and transformed lives because forget o, God can turn a man’s story around completely.”

Dhekumzy_ “There’s nothing wrong in telling people about your past. Nobody on earth without mistakes. God is not human. Christ turns life around.”
