He wrote and published two books called:
KICK THAT POVERT OUT, a book he wrote during his brief visit in Holland, the Netherlands And
BEFORE YOU EXIT SCHOOL, a book that is raising awareness in young people that there is a lot they need to know of before exiting school, because that piece of paper called a degree or diploma is NOT a guarantee that they will be successful in their lives, especially because we are living in a country that has so many highly educated but poor people,
Two more of his books are being written and are in the process of being published, namely:
LIVING THE DREAM WITH CRYPTO-CURRENCIES
REDEFINING POLYGAMY, a book that is underpinning today’s lecture.
