“I was working in a laundry after just gaining admission. Alongside the laundry job, I explored various other ventures

“In my first year, I sold doughnuts in class,” the Imo State-born said. “In the second year, I sold bedbug killer at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), and in my third year, I drove to school,” he stated



However, in 2020, Brain Jotter went viral with his comedy skits and he has been on the rise ever since

While his videos have made him a household name, Brain Jotter is not resting on his oars

“Ever since my video went viral, I can’t go five days without working. I’ve been restless from that day until now,” he said.


“This restlessness and the experience of earning little money have taught me how to appreciate the value of my purchases,” Brain Jotter maintained.


With these lessons from a humble beginning, Chukwuebuka has a piece of advice for fans and people generally.


“We need to be careful about the dreams we ask God for because back then, my dream was to rent a self-contained apartment and own a tricycle for carrying passengers,” he said.
