Nigerian skit maker, Chukwuebuka Emmanuel Amuzie, popularly known as Brain Jotter, has reflected on his struggling days.
The content creator recalled when he was barely getting by as an undergraduate at the University of Lagos and had to hawk to survive.
According to Brain Jotter, before he hit stardom, he took several menial jobs including selling insecticides and doughnuts to cater for his tuition fees and other needs.
Speaking with Kim Oprah on Hip TV programme, Trending, he also revealed that in 2020, he was working in a laundry where he was earning N15,000.
Brain Jotter said, “2020, my salary was N15,000. In 2021, my salary was N30,000. In 2020, I was working in a laundry. I had just gained admission into the University of Lagos.
“Apart from working in a laundry, I was also doing other stuff. In my school, I was selling bedbug killer. In my first year, I sold doughnuts in my class. In year two, I sold bedbug killer. And year three, I drove to school.
“Ever since my video went viral till now, I can’t just stay five days straight without working. I’ve been restless since hitting stardom, probably except I’m not in Lagos. But even if I’m not in Lagos, I’m still thinking of ideas for content. My dream then was to rent a one-room apartment and become a taxi driver.”
