Kola lost everything in the long run, including his house and almost his life what it means not to have anything- no work, no home, no money, no food, no friend, no child, no nothing except a loving and an ever hope, ever believing wife! Things changed and he became the pioneer background screening industry in Nigeria. He got blessed with two lovely children, became the owner of his own house and business. The only thing that never changed was is disability status, but the status stirred up an enviable can-do spirit in Kola. Through It All is indeed about “going through it all in life and yet winning”.
