Below is an excerpt from the interview.

How did he come to bear the nameC Oluomo?

“The name MC that people call me started from when I was in school. It was one big woman who named me MC when I was young. She is now in Canada. She is a Mama Alaye. Then, when we were young we used to play a game called Game and Watch. My name is Musiliu but she turned it into MC. We used to move from school to school challenging ourselves so she would tell people to go meet that MC Boy. That was how the alias stuck.

What is his relationship like with the former Lagos NURTW Chairman, Olorunwa?
