Maikori who disclosed to thisdaylive sometimes in March 2015, said he started making money while he was in the university. According to him, it was like a club thing where they would bring a DJ and they would make some money in the process. He was also into painting and artwork as a business. in his words:
“In law school, I was selling shirts and ties because I dressed well and people would always ask me, ‘Where did you get this from?’ And by the time I answered, they would end up saying, ‘Can you get it for me?’ I’ve always tried to be industrious. Immediately after law school, I ventured into mining business, the first time, I made money and the second time, I lost everything. And I found myself fresh out of school with no job but a debt of N200, 000. So, my father just said, if I were you, I will go to a law firm to learn. This still brings us back to the issue of internship we’re harping on.”
