So why “Almighty Blessing?” What does that name mean to you?

That nickname was given to me by my friends because growing up I was in many life-and-death situations where I should be dead. So it’s a blessing that I’m still alive, and based on that information I use it to lead the youth positively.

A powerful nickname that has stuck with him throughout the years. He even uses the name on TikTok and other social media platforms.
