Karamo detailed running into Cannon at a red light and words from the talk show host helped keep him on track in his career.

“I used to work in social services and I was trying to make this dream happen about six, seven years ago of being in television,” Karamo said. “There were some days as a single father that I’d wake up and I’d be like… I’m killing myself, I’m neglecting my time with my kids and I look for little signs of inspiration from God to say keep going and one day I was in my old little 1992 car on the freeway in LA and I pull up on my way to work and guess who’s next to me? This brother right here.


“Windows down, looking fly and I said ‘Okay, God’ this is a sign to say continue on… So, I tweeted: Just saw Nick Cannon on the freeway, I’m going to continue after my dreams, this is a sign. This brother right here tweeted me back and said, ‘Keep going, I know you’re going to make it …’ and look at this seven years later.”

Nick Cannon would reveal that Karamo would give him advice when they both were single fathers.
