In an exclusive interview with Fox Nigeria, the 26-year-old provided answers to all those questions. He also opened up about his experience in the coffin.

Why Young C Moneygod buried himself alive

Speaking with Fox Nigeria, Young C Moneygod, who hails from Okohia in Isiala Mbano LGA, Imo State, said he buried himself alive for certain reasons, one of which was to profit from the virality of his challenge video. In his words:

“First, I did it for content creation sake for one of my platforms, “Young C Entertainment,” on YouTube. I wanted to grow my platform with the attention that would be gotten from the challenge. I did it to earn a living instead of indulging in fraud and other criminal activities. Hence, I was going to make some money from my platforms when I upload the video.

“I did it to overcome fear, telling myself I could do whatever I wanted to do, even if people tried to discourage me.”

Young C Moneygod’s experience buried alive

When quizzed about his experience of being in a coffin for 24 hours, the YouTuber told Fox Nigeria he had mixed feelings. He described it as terrible and fun.

“The experience is terrible, fun and a kind of adventure too, but I won’t advise anyone to try it if they don’t have the necessary tools needed to embark on the journey.”

Young C Moneygod hints at new challenges

The history and international studies graduate stated that the challenge taught him humans can’t live without oxygen.

He expressed delight at ignoring his naysayers and hinted at future risky challenges but preferred not to let the cat out of the bag for fear of his ideas being stolen.

“My takeaway is that humans can not leave without oxygen, lolz. I am happy I followed my heart to take on this challenge, paying deaf ears to people’s discouragements.

“My name wouldn’t have been on the map just like it is right now.”
