The story behind the name “Chichi”?
When my brother Yo was small, he found it difficult to pronounce ‘chooty’ (small) malli. So once, at a party, he had been stuffing his pockets with food. One of the aunties had asked him as to why he was not eating the food but stuffing it in his pockets, and he had replied saying, “This is for my chichi (supposed to be chooty) malli’. At the time of this incident I was about 1 or 2 months old, since then everyone calls me ‘chichi’.
Your love for racing, when did it start?
From the day we were exposed to vehicles, always loved being fast and I love the adrenaline rush you get in fast things.
Do you like being called Chichi?
Yes, I just want everyone to call me that and nothing else.

What is your favourite thing to spend money on? Bikes and cars.
What is the weirdest thing about you? Are you proud of it?
Always needing to make everyone around me workout, especially my girlfriend. I am not proud of it, but I do feel good when I see the people around me fit and healthy.
As the President’s son, two disadvantages you face personally?
1-Public eye on everything I do

If you woke up one day looking like Yo, what would you do? Grow my hair, run to my girlfriend’s closet and burn it, get her a new set of clothes and give her freedom to choose her own style of clothing with no restrictions. Send my girlfriend to a cosmetic surgeon and get her birthmark removed, go run to Yo’s room , grab his ID and credit card and shop as much as I want to and meet the girlfriend’s parents and go propose that I am about the age to get married and put Yo in a bit of trouble and hide till I recover my same old good looks as Chichi. Hahaha basically to create chaos.
