Experience in the Sahara Desert
He said it took him almost two hours to cross the Mauritanian border. The determined man traveled the entire Sahara Desert.
Kunle revealed that when he stopped and wanted to make a video in the desert, the soldiers passing by him laughed and wondered if he was okay because of the strange nature of the Sahara.

Testifying to how dangerous the place could be, he said he heard voices around him. In his words:
“…it’s the Sahara! And it’s true that the Sahara is not your friend and it neither forgives nor understands errors or ignorance, it kills you! When I stopped making the video, I kept turning around because I started hearing different voices.
According to him, although hearing voices may seem so funny to many, it is true. He said, however, that these were not spirit voices but voices of people who might be present.
He explained it by saying:
“…Due to the strong winds over the Sahara and the relatively flat, bare surfaces, sound waves tend to travel farther, so the voices of people many miles away can be clearly transmitted to you.”
