A presenter at Classic FM, Temisan Okomi, has narrated how a young girl he helped some years back, invited him for her convocation.
Mr. Okomi said he met the girl for the first time at a bar. At the time, she was only 17-year-old, looking so pretty and serving as a waitress at the bar.
Temisan decided to ask why she isn’t in school, and as expected, her story was that there was no money to purchase JAMB and SSCE forms.
Touched by the young girl’s story, Temi asked if she would return to school if he gives her the money for the forms, she said Yes and Temi showed his generosity.
Years later, the girl is now a proud first class degree holder and Mr. Okomi couldn’t hide his joy.
Sharing the exciting news via his twitter page, he wrote ;
Graduated from FUTA with 1st-Class honours & a degree in Physiology……ladies & gentlemen, I present to you, my friend (now) and light:
Feyi. Bring 2020, Universe.
Below is the story he shared, before sharing her photo today.
A few years ago, I was drinking at this joint I normally drink at in G.R.A when this young waitress served. Looked all of 17 & it was quite late. I was a bit bothered. She looked way too young. So I asked her. She was 17. Pretty young girl…
…I could see her immediate future at that joint, with pervy old men like me drinking there, so I asked her why she wasn’t in school. Familiar tale of no money so she was waiting tables until she could save up to buy forms for SSCE & JAMB. I don’t remember how much it was…
..but I asked her: “If you get money for these forms, you will stop doing this job?” She said; “Yes.” So I dipped me hands & pulled out my lean stash. Gave her the loot & told her she could quit. I don’t do appreciation. I don’t know how to handle it.
She calls me up the next day & her mom gets on the phone & starts praying for me. Truly embarrassing stuff. That was the last time I spoke with her or her mom. Fast forward to 10 minutes ago. She just called me. Said she lost my card but her mom just found it.
She is doing her convocation on Friday. Ladies & gents; I’m flummoxed. Her name is Feyi & I had forgotten about her. Truthfully, I don’t even recall her face again.
She is a graduate.
I win 2019, you heifers!
