A Nigerian boy who could not pass his Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations (UTME) in 2021 has started making a lot of money with his talent.
According to a story that went popular on Twitter and was shared by Dev Tobs, the youngster is a talented writer who creates comic books. After he attempted UTME and was unsuccessful, he was said to have refused to give up and started using his talent entirely.
The story reads, “In 2021, I met this 17 year old Nigerian lad that had made $19,000 (N14.5 million). Yes , you didn’t misread, $19k 😭. He wrote JAMB twice with no major headway but His folks noticed he had flair for writing, hence his brother who’s my close pal, also a software Engineer advised he starts hoisting the comic books he writes on this Amazon thingy, Etsy and one other one.”
“You know what marveled me about this young lad and got me curious to meet him when I was in NG ? His dedication despite the odds, Prior , his brother had told me he stays indoor mostly writing, but meeting him aced me up , his time management was one I never expected from a 17yr old, we was talking and dude was like, “……Uncle T, I need go back to my room, I have a target to finish up specific laid out plans, in my head I’m like “” Mo fo o o “ 😂.”
“During those years, he’d write those comic books and his bro helps him put it up on the Amazon thingy and helps receive its pay and other proceedings, And sends them into his Nigerian account, before 20 , dude was already worth millions from writing. Interesting . Innit ?✨”.
“2 years down the line today, got news he’s moved up Canada for his bachelors and I couldn’t stop but feel happier. Long story short, I want you like this fr, don’t get down with Your adversities , find strength in them and you’d make a head way.”
“Turn your odds into your strength, if you’d be consistent with doing what you know to do before long you’d make an headway I bet . It may take some time but you’ll win. ✌🏽💐”.
