Jason Njoku, the CEO of IrokoTV, says he had nothing at the age of 30 and was only living with his mother at the time.


The entrepreneur was on Wednesday reflecting on the pressure those who are of similar age group go through in pursuit of success in recent times.

According to him, such pressure to succeed among those less than the age of 30 is unnecessary.

Citing himself as an instance, the IrokoTV boss said when he was within a similar age range, he had neither a girlfriend nor assets.


The father of three also said all he had was a fairly used desktop computer and his IrokoTV project which he was working on.

Njoku added that in spite of his condition at the time, he was not perturbed or under intense pressure to succeed as obtainable among contemporary youths below the age of 30.

“The pressure for <30 years to succeed these days is so strange. So unnecessary. At 30 I was dead broke living at my Mum’s house,” he wrote on Twitter.


“No girlfriend & zero assets. Just me my 2nd hand desktop & @irokotv 10 failures to my name but man did I enjoy those early years in the world. Enjoy sha.”


In March, the entrepreneur had revealed that he pays more than N4.6 million for his three-year-old child who attends a Montessori school.
