Big Brother Naija 2017 housemate, Ekemini Aniefiok Ekerette, popularly known as Kemen is celebrating his 30th birthday this Wednesday, September 25.
For many people, birthdays are a time for reflection and gratitude and it is not different for Kemen who went back in time to share his childhood plans and the blows that life dealt him.
In a post on his Instagram page, the former reality TV star revealed that his dream was to get married at 20 and work in a multinational company. The fitness expert said he also hoped to be married at 25, have his last child at 29 and at 30, he would help get his wife’s body back while acting as new lovers.
Sadly, life happened to Kemen, who lost his job three years after 20th birthday and at 25, he was going through depression and ill health.
Thankfully, Kemen found fitness and he confessed that the physical activity changed his life.
He said: “5 years down the line, I can say that fitness changed my life, my person, my perspective, my ideology and my understanding of life. In fitness, I found peace, love, satisfaction, hope, and fulfillment.”

10yrs ago when I was 20 and working in a multinational company, I thought @25 I would be married, have my last child @29 help my wife get her body back in a year @30 and start acting as new lovers ever after. Oh well, I guess I thought too loud and my yard people heard me. I lost my job 3yrs later after I turned 23. 25 met me at the darkest point in my life, depression & ill health led me to fitness but it was obviously designed by God that I go that route because HE placed everyone I needed to get me through the hard times. 5 years down the line, I can say that fitness changed my life, my person, my perspective, my ideology and my understanding of life. In fitness I found peace, love, satisfaction, hope and fulfilment. I may not have all I want, but I certainly have what I need. I'm thankful I'm grateful I'm the best of my kind I'm 30 HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME. Sharp look @kayzplace 📸 @imagefaculty
