He is an Idoma man from Okpokwu Local Government Area of Benue State.
His parents were both stewards who barely made enough to sustain the family so Oche decided that he would do his best to change their story and live up to his name “Oche” which means “King” in idoma. Oche wanted to be a footballer, he was very good at the game and played alongside the likes of Lemmy Isah, John Zaki and Peter Ogaba just to mention a few. But his late father was a strict man and a strong believer in the power of education who didn’t see football then as a career path that would help put food on the table, due to that reason he had to focus on his studies and let go of his dreams of playing football professionally.
Growing up in the slums of North bank makurdi he and his friend Tunde Falola who had a pickup truck decided to use it to make ends meet serving as transporters who assisted farmers, market women and traders carry their goods from one location to another for a fee in Ugbokolo town.

With his love for the game, their knowledge about business and noticing the absence of sport brands owned by Africans, they decided to start a brand where they could manufacture balls, boots, jerseys and other sport souvenirs for Africans.
Since football was recognized as a symbol of peace and unity, the primary aim of the company was to ensure that football gets to every home in Africa. The company started with its sport merchandise brand and with its success came the plan to setup a football club in charge of discovering young talents, harnessing them and creating a platform for them to showcase their talent and love for the game to the world.
With the idea being to put Africa on the map (synergizing Africa and the rest of the world), where young talents discovered can be taken for further exposure and opportunities. In 2017 the Dakinda Group acquired a Division Two Football Club in Slovenia formerly NK Drava Ptuj now known as NK Drava Dakinda and Oche was appointed a Director on the board.
