A young Nigerian man identified as Michael Adebisi, who graduated from Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) became popular online after he begged Davido money to support his business.
Adebisi talked about his struggle and how he resorted to opening a viewing centre. In all, Adebisi is poised for a bright future.
Speaking on Why he opened a football viewing centre, the physically challenged man revealed that if there are no few options in the country, a graduate will not go into operating a viewing centre business.
After graduating from OAU, Adebisi stated that he hunted for a job for years. He said the reason why he failed to get employment was probably because of his physical disability.
As a way to keep busy and have a stream of income, he started a viewing centre.
“Take for instance, the most watched match in my area is Champions League and most watched teams here are Man Utd, Chelsea and Arsenal. Unfortunately, two teams of them are out which means there’s low income this season,” the young graduate explained.
The man revealed that some of his income also goes into paying for DSTV subscription which has now been hiked, and fuel. He described the business as “not good, not bad”.
On how surprised he was when Nigerians’ supported him, he said that when he made the tweet pitching for N1m, he never expected Nigerians would show him that much love.
He got N305,000 from people who wanted to help him. Other things he received were a PlayStation, a television, and a decoder.
On how lack of capital is affecting his business, the man revealed that operating on a single television affected his business as he could not broadcast two matches at the same time.
He said: “For example, if Man Utd vs Leicester and Chelsea vs Brighton are to play at same time. I would have to choose to broadcast Chelsea match as they have more fans than the latter and with that I’ll lose some customers that are Man Utd fans.”
