Cursory: A Nigerian kid who was once an area boy has been transformed and made to be useful to himself and society. The young boy who was lucky to come in contact with Tunde Onakoya has become a web developer. Netizens gush over the boy’s transformation photos.
The life of a young boy who was once an area boy has been transformed for good, and he is now a web developer.
Chess promoter, Tunde Onakoya, is the catalyst to the boy’s transformation as he is the one that picked him from ‘street’.
The philanthropist posted photos of the boy who is now in a better place.One of the photos shows the boy playing chess, he looked younger and concentrated on the game.
In another photo, he was looking dapper in a suit as he posed by an aeroplane at the airport. The two photos show how his life changed after he met Tunde, who is known for helping less privileged children to become better.
Tunde said while posting the photos:
“Thinking about Ayomide today. We met him as an Area boy under oshodi bridge a little over a year ago but is now a Web developer and graphics designer. No longer a pawn in another man’s game, but the hero of his own story.
“I take him with me on my flights to Abuja and visits to important people so he sees how valuable his existence is. One day, he’ll get to pay it forward and only then will our work truly be done.”

@ireteeh: Great job. May God continue to bless you. I wonder how the govt can unlook this type of rehabilitation. Ohh well, how will they get thugs to mobilize for election.
@Oreegamii: The stories i like to hear. ALL NIGERIANS have similar potential but as you can see, it’s being STRIPPED & STOLEN
