While sharing the inspiring story of Gbenga Michael, he said;
“From master of local fashion hustle in Lagos Island to Masters in International Fashion Management from Nottingham Trent University
“When my brother’s name was announced yesterday at his graduation, I could neither clap nor shout like others did. I was soaked in deep emotions and memories. Our road has been rough, Gbenga’s has been rougher. But he’s been super focused and patient with his big dreams.
“Gbenga, thank you for surviving as a still born, thank you writing JAMB 4 times, thank you for being a dedicated local tailor for 7 years. Thank you for showing the world that roadblocks can be stepping stones. Baba Wale must be ”buga-ing” in his grave for taking his name a notch higher in the fashion world. We are proud of you bro!.”
“With God, nothing shall be impossible!”

Our parents sacrifice a lot of things for us to go to school but when we make it at the top, at times,they would have since passed on. This is exactly what I went through. Its painful to say the least. Especially when you see others being accompanied by their parents at graduation .thank you for sharing
