Victor Thompson recounts how he survived after losing his parents at age 12

Popular gospel singer Victor Thompson has made a shocking revelation about his upbringing.

Thompson disclosed that he sold weed and alcohol to survive after losing both of his parents at age 12.

In a touching chat with Chude Jideonwo, the singer recalled that he hawked sachet water during the day and sold alcohol, weed and cigarettes to sex workers at night.

“At a time, I was selling alcohol, weed, cigarettes, and hawking pure water. In the morning and afternoon time, I did vulcanizing, shoe-making and hawked pure water but at night go back to my shop which was close to a brothel to sell alcohol, weed, and cigarettes. Most of my customers were the prostitutes,” he recalled.

“I lost my parents when I was between 12 and 14. My dad passed first, I think I was 10 or thereabout. When my dad died, my aunties threw us out of our dad’s house. We didn’t have a place to sleep. God so good, a carpenter was so kind and gave us an empty land to sleep. It’s a bush so at night, I would sneak my mum in, so that was how we lived for years. But she couldn’t cope then she passed.”
