Hermes identifies himself as an honest person who says the truth regardless of the situation in an interview with BBNaija presenter Ebuka Obi-Uchendu.

“I’d like to demonstrate to everyone how much love and creativity that are developed in such cramped living conditions can transform the world and help people grow,” he said.
