Add a Custom Method addLabel

-(void)addLabel {

   CGRectMake(20, 200, 280, 80)];
   aLabel.numberOfLines = 0;
   aLabel.textColor = [UIColor blueColor];
   aLabel.backgroundColor = [UIColor clearColor];
   aLabel.textAlignment = UITextAlignmentCenter;
   aLabel.text = @"This is a sample text\n of multiple lines.
   here number of lines is not limited.";
   [self.view addSubview:aLabel];

Update viewDidLoad in ViewController.m as follows −
