He declined to go to the 2007 World Cup after being selected in the initial 32-man squad. "I spoke to my dad about it and then decided to stay back and finish up school." (Star Pheonix, 09 Jul 2008)

FROM NIGERIA TO CANADA
He was born in Nigeria but moved to South Africa with his father before moving on to Canada so his father could pursue a medical career. (Star Pheonix, 09 Jul 2008)

EYEING EUROPE
He has spoke of the limitations that playing in Canada could have on his career and feels he need to move somewhere where rugby is more popular. "I would have to go either to the U.K., France, or Italy. If things go well I might end up in Australia, New Zealand or South Africa, but Europe is closer and all the Canadian national players have good contacts there."
