The gospel singer revealed that he resorted to snatching bags on the streets of Kampala back in 1998 when he was just a young boy.

During his time as a street kid, Exodus and his peers relied on stealing people’s belongings as their only means of making a living.

He mentioned a specific location on Dewington Street where they would scavenge through rubbish bins for discarded food whenever they were unable to steal a bag to buy food.

Exodus recalled a tragic incident where a child died due to fights over stolen items or police interventions during his time on the streets.

One particular memory he shared was when he stole a bag and encountered a notorious street member named Mirembe, who demanded that the singer hand over the stolen goods for a share.

When he refused, Mirembe resorted to violence, assaulting him and taking the bag and money, only to discover it amounted to around Ugx 3 million.

A scuffle ensued, during which Mirembe attempted to shoot the singer but the gun malfunctioned. After a few hours, Exodus woke up, thinking he had died.
