Speaking with Nigerian football journalist Oluwashina Okeleji via The Frame online publication platform, Wilfred Ndidi revealed that he hawked pepper, groundnut, among other things to just to support his mother while growing up.

According to him, none of the things he sold gave him fame more than groundnut and that was where he got the nickname ‘groundnut boy’. He said;

“I did different things. Sometimes I hawked pepper, I sold water [sachets], tomatoes and fruits for my mother.

“But I became famous for selling [groundnut] peanuts. They call me the groundnut boy. I did all these things to support my mother.

“As a side hustle, to get my own personal money I was wiping the windscreens for cars held (up) in traffic. If I’m lucky sometimes I make about N2000 (almost R80) in a day but the highest I made was N3000 (around R118).”
