Popular Nollywood actor, Ramsey Noah has opened up on the challenging moments his family encountered whilst growing up.
According to him, he once hated everybody around him because of poverty.
Ramsey disclosed in a chat with Stargist that his family depended on people for survival before God finally opened a way for them.
He recounted how they the family had to sleep under bridges and rely on abandoned stores—as the only shelter available to them.
Ramsey who is now a father of two said, he questioned whether God had forsaken them because of the untold hardship.
“I lived on the streets and in a store which could accommodate a mat with my mother. My mother and I squeezed ourselves in that mat.
“Those were the times when things got really bad for my mother and I and we had nothing. It was so bad that we didn’t have a home to live in. We didn’t even have a cup to drink water, talk more of a stove to cook on. My mother had to borrow, beg and stuff like that,” he said.
“Those moments, those terrible moments we had nothing and we were living off people. People were just helping us out. There were times we didn’t have food to eat three or four days. You haven’t eaten and your stomach is rumbling but you don’t have any place to go.
“It was unfortunate that there were no records so that we can have memories we could play back now. To me, I am so extremely grateful that I went through it. At that time, I hated everybody around me. In fact, I used to question why God was doing this to me. But I think God knew that I needed this for my future.
“These were moments when I was young. I didn’t realise the gravity of poverty we were in,” the 45-year-old actor explicated.
