Kim Oprah Opens Up On Life’s Early Struggles On Podcast

The popular Kim Oprah, also known as Opara Chinonso Ibinabo, star of Big Brother Naija reality show, has disclosed that she used to sell recharge cards and sachet water to make ends meet. In a Tea With Tay podcast conversation, Oprah made this statement with Taymesan. She related her early years and how, following her father’s passing, she was forced to reside in the barracks in Abuja. As she put it;

“After my dad’s death, my mother was in the military. So we had to move into the barracks in Abuja to help with accommodation.

“When I went to University of Port Harcourt, my sister and I used to sell recharge cards, pure water and eggs around our side, because there was no closeby kiosk, where you could buy those things so we became the kiosk.

“Honestly, I’m just happy that I went through it because it really shaped me and made me stronger.

“I know what the hustle is, I have seen suffering. So coming out on the other side and being this person is like I understand both worlds,”
