According to him he had to help his mother in the selling of Okpa. He helped his mother fan this product when it is laid on fire because they had to make use of firewood in the production of this food.

In his words;

“You see this here its called Okpa. My mum was making it and we were both selling it, this was my breakfast and dinner every day… The process of making it was ridiculous.. My mom used fire wood and I was the one fanning the fire because kerosene was luxury.. So I had smoke entering my eyes 5 hours every day for over 10 years except Sundays, my eyes were always Red until it became permanent then I started having eye problem cus I was always rubbing my eyes with dirty hands trying to clear the smoke.. Cus I didn’t understand why my vision was blurred, my mum had same issue too with her eyes, regardless we still hit the road to sell , but guess what that was when i developed a strong & natural business mindset, i knew a lot about money early , i knew how to convince people to buy, i knew that smoke is not strong enough to stop me, i knew the ones that buy on credit and never pay so i only go to them when the market is so bad .. Because it’s better to sell on credit than to have it spoil..

What you are going through today is training, though it may look like suffering but its training, don’t look for easy way out, go through it and come out tougher!!! Though today I have permanent red eyes to the point when some ppl see me they ask “Do you smoke” I’m like God forbid!? Sometimes it hurts, most times I laugh because I’m like. .

“If only you know” but how ever I am a happy man and I have enough pages in my book of testimony to encourage my children. Go through it and add pages to your testimony book! Because your blessing is ready waiting, you are only being trained to handle it.”

Okpa is a traditional Nigerian food; very popular in the eastern parts of Nigeria and tastes really good. The flour can be made from scratch by grinding dried Bambara nut/beans.

To prepare this delicacy, you need

3 cigar cups | 450g | 1lb Okpa flour, 15 tablespoons red palm oil, 4 small stock/bouillon cubes (Maggi, Knorr etc), Salt (to taste), Habanero pepper (to taste),1.2 liters lukewarm/tepid water.
