It is an unspoken rule that those who are hard-working succeed in life. Those who take responsibility for their actions and learn from their mistakes also succeed in life.
That is the case of a painter who turned a bad situation into a successful one by making use of the opportunities that he was provided with.
A Nigerian Twitter user, Gossy Ukanwoke, who was inspired by the painter’s story shared it on social media.
According to Ukanwoke, the painter who also works for him went to Italy as an illegal immigrant and later found his way into Switzerland.
As soon as he got to Switzerland, he started working hard to earn a living by hustling on the street. He was then caught and sentenced to 5 years in jail for illegal street trading.
Ukanwoke explained that the painter did not let the bad omen stop him as he started to take painting classes in jail.
NAIJ.com gathered that the hard working painter who is back in Nigeria after completing is sentence now lives in Lekki, gets employed regularly for painting jobs and he is respected as a professional in the business.
