Early life and education[edit]

He started his primary school education in Imo state and later completed it in Lagos. His secondary education also took the same pattern, started in Imo and completed in Lagos. After the death of his father when he was ten, he was either living with his mother in Imo or his uncle in Lagos.

As a journalist, he reported and produced news programs for the FRCN.[3] Obasi continues to work for media organizations as a freelancer. He equally volunteers for different causes in Nigeria, Europe and United States in different capacities.
