Growing up he was a football player and participated in athletics and represented his school in interschool games. The boarding school taught him discipline, the need to be responsible and independence at an early stage.

Throughout his primary school, he had an outstanding academic record which was crowned by his exemplary performance in his C.P.E at class seven.
