Visit Dubai, I got it from an agency in Nigeria. It’s just about packaging, how you present yourself. People are watching. So whatever you do, do it with all your might, with all the energy, push yourself, invest in yourself. For you to get money, you have to spend money. The moment you fear investing in yourself, hakuna kitu utapata.”
