Meet Remi Adeleke – a Nigerian prince, raised in a mansion with servants and riches, and abruptly ended up on the hard streets of NYC.

In this episode, Drew talks with Remi - author of ‘Transformed’ – who shares his unbelievable true journey of riches to rags, beating all odds in a predominantly white Navy SEAL program, and now giving back to his community.
