As huge as his affiliates are, he is comfortable behind the scenes as he dissolves himself into a kind of self-effacing anonymity that speaks volume of his humility. Simple and unassuming with a warm relational attitude with people who come across him.
The praises he received on his big day showed how instrumental he has been to the success of Mavin. While hailing him on his birthday, CEO of Mavin, Don Jazzy called him “Mavin himself.” Tenny the entertainer called him “brainy.”
