“E-Sir was in Brookhouse school and he was like the sharpest guy in the school. He was older than me, I joined the year he left. But when you reached the school, E-Sir’s presence was everywhere, he got best student awards and not just in music or whatever, like best in Maths, best in sciences you find E-Sir there.”
