NAIJ.com came across the inspiring story of the young man Bayo Omoboriowo who went from hawking to becoming President Muhammadu Buhari's official photographer.
Almost everyone has a grass-to-grace story to tell especially when they have struggled against all odds to succeed.
Such is the case of Omoboriowo who has gone on to become the official photographer to the number one citizen of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari.
Bayo's story tells of him going from being a pure water hawker to that coveted position of the official photographer of the president, which means he'll get to follow the president to most of his official assignments (isn't that awesome?)
The 30-year-old said in a video:
"Yes I hawked pure water in Mushin, Ojuwoye market. They were calling me Bayo pure water because I shout 'buy your pure water' and so they called me Bayo pure water. This was when I was still in primary school. At a point I was ashamed because I would see my schoolmates and their parents driving them home after school."
