Leaving for the military marked one of the saddest periods in his life, especially as he had to bid farewell to everyone, particularly his mother. The moment he stepped onto the military transport, he realized it was a decision he deeply regretted. Upon reaching the recruitment desk before heading to basic training, the absence of a phone intensified his feelings of loneliness and sadness.

Borrowing a friend’s phone, he reached out to his mother, informing her about his departure. After completing the initial stages, they were sent to basic training, a challenging experience that he eventually overcame. Following basic training and Advanced Individual Training (AIT), he was assigned to a duty station in Germany, a location far from his familiar surroundings.

Struggling with depression, loneliness, and a lack of companionship in Germany, he found himself confined to his room 24/7. Realizing that the military lifestyle did not suit him, as he disliked being dictated by others, including his superiors, he made the decision to leave. Exiting the service brought immense joy to his life, a stark contrast to the hardships he faced.

A pivotal moment that prompted change in his life was witnessing his mother’s tears. Despite being a high school champion, he had a troubled academic history, frequently facing suspension. In 10th grade, he accumulated 16 referrals.

One day, before heading to school, he honestly told his mother that he would rather not attend. As he left, he noticed a shift in his family’s usual pursuit, leaving him wondering why they no longer chased after him.

His younger brother had already boarded the waiting bus, but it started moving before he could join. Standing there, perplexed by the unfolding events, he watched the bus depart without him, and neither his mother nor his brother pursued him.

Upon returning home, he found his mother in tears, fearing that he might follow in the troubled footsteps of his elder brother, who had been incarcerated twice before turning 16. Witnessing his mother’s distress that day prompted a transformative shift in his life. Since then, he has remained focused, never skipped school, consistently completed his homework on time, and continues to be his mother’s favorite.

There were rumors about him being involved with rapper Kali, but whether they are dating or not remains unclear, as they have yet to make it official. While in the military, Duke had a girlfriend, but he eventually ended the relationship. Though he admitted to being hurt, he quickly recovered.

His reported net worth is in the $2 million range.
