Onakoya disclosed that he met the talented young boy in Katwe, Uganda and was impressed by his skills. He shared that after engaging in a fierce battle, he was able to defeat the little kid in the game.
His words: “I met this 4 year old chess genius in the slums of Katwe Uganda. I won this time, but I’ll be no match for him in a couple of years. The @thegiftofchess has put him on lifelong educational scholarship support. We must nurture this incredible African talent.”
