In the interview with Stargist, the celebrated actor recounted how he and his mother once lived lived on the streets and begged for food.
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.
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”.
Ramsey Noah underscored the need for perseverance and hard work as keys to success.
