There was a point one of my uncles suggested I go learn mechanic or carpentry works, but I refused. I’m not saying those kinds of works are bad, but I know what I wanted. Because of my refusal, my uncle called me all kinds of names and even told me that I won’t make it in life, but here I am today. ‘There were times I trekked from Festac to island, from Surulere to island.

In fact, I was a trekker then but I never gave up because I know what I wanted. If anyone wants to really make it and be successful in his or her endeavours, then believe in your dreams and stay stubborn to it.’ Yaw ranks among the top on-air personalities in the country, he anchors the breakfast show on Wazobia FM ‎and is a notable industry heavyweight..
