Big Brother Naija reality show star, Opara Chinonso Ibinabo, popularly known as Kim Oprah, has revealed that she once sold sachet water and recharge cards during her struggles.

Oprah stated this in an interview with Taymesan on the Tea With Tay podcast.

Sharing her childhood experience, she narrated how she had to live in Abuja barracks after the death of her father.

“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,” she said.
