Groovy has a tight knit family; he has two sisters (twins) and one brother. There are pictures circulating on the internet, of his beautiful mom, as well as his siblings.
Groovy is a very intelligent person; he was into debating when he was in secondary school; perhaps that has helped build a strong and unyielding character. He comes across as somewhat argumentative; through years of training, he has come to know how to present his points whenever a debate springs up. Furthermore, unless he is soundly defeated with facts, Groovy has the tendency to keep going, either until his opponent tires out, or he wins the argument.
During his time at the University of Lagos, he was involved in fashion shows where he worked as a model. He is also a musician; he has releases at least one album, as well as several tracks.

Groovy In Big Brother Naija Level Up
In Big Brother Naija, Groovy was easily identified as the tall, lanky guy with the pinkish hair. He was a very lively personality while in the house, and he always behaved decently and considerately towards everyone.
Amid his playful, happy disposition, he also managed to get involved in some heated debates with fellow housemates, where he showed himself as a passionate speaker, and as a resolved person. Unfortunately, this gave him a reputation as an argumentative person, maybe because many people did not understand his personality.
Aside from his generally good rapport with the housemates, Groovy built a special relationship with fellow Housemates Phyna, with whom he had some very good moments in the house. At a previous time; he built a love triangle involving Chomzy and Beauty. Arguably, it was the fallout of the resulting quarrel that led to Beauty leaving the house. In an interview following her eviction she stated that she fell in love with Groovy because of his personality.
After Big Brother Naija
Groovy was able to sell himself to the audience; he has built a solid name for himself as a celebrity in Nigeria, and he has built a large social media following.
