The Prince’s Trust gave Okezie a grant for the saxophone and his lessons.
Every time that my brother would come round to mine, he would have the sax with him. He would practice and it would really annoy me.
One day I was in my kitchen cooking and I shouted out to my brother turn the music up it sounds so good, there was no response. I went into the front room and it was in fact my brother playing.
He once said to me he that when he died, he did not want to be remembered for just having sickle cell anaemia.
Okezie introduced me to many great names, including Courtney Pine, who years later gave his support with the OKe Club Magazine.
