Some of them described him as “a gift to humanity, a man of action, a perfect mentor, motivator, character moulder with great vision who impacts knowledge to people, setting a pace for younger generation”.

Others praised him for his good works in making them become professional fashion designers with 1st stage of three months free Basic training without payment, and an offer for the 2nd and 3rd stages, which are the intermediary and advanced stages, respectively, which is not free.
