Asawana was born and raised in Kaduna State, though a native of Olomoro, Isoko South, Delta State, to a Deeper Life parents. He often jokes about how breaking out of a Deeper Life family to pursue a career in comedy and television was almost an unthinkable and impossible task until his fathher, a Deeper Life Pastor watched him life on NTA anchoring an event that had in attendance, the Vice President of Nigeria, an event he was paid six figure to anchor. According to the very gifted OAP, that was when his dad called him ‘Asawana” for the first time, after about 20years of struggling to free himself from the shackles of parental highhandedness.
He started his primary education in Hope International School, Kaduna but finished from Murna Children School, all in Kaduna. His family had to move to Sapele due to pockets of violence in Kaduna at the time and there, he attended Ufuoma Mixed Secondary School, Sapele.

He has, in many occasions, used his platform as a TV presenter to raise funds for “Children with Talents” and is currently, Secretary, Abuja Body of Comedy.
Asawana would always say that “If I could convince my very conservative Deeper Life Father to support my career (after 20years, Lol), then you don’t have any excuse to fail”.
