Emeka Jeremiah, the teenage hawker who went viral a few days ago for his generous gesture to inmates, has reason to smile and may never hawk again after a Nigerian businessman offered him a university scholarship and job.
After a video showing him sharing his money with detainees in a correctional service truck in Ajah, Lagos, went viral, the bottled water vendor became an online phenomenon.
The 46-year-old celebrity revealed in a recent Instagram live interview with media personality Daddy Freeze that the offer is a once-in-a-lifetime one and that he doesn't expect anything in return for his kindness to the young man.
"I am offering him a lifetime opportunity; he has to go to school I think that is his ambition. "I will see him through the university, and if he wants to do Masters abroad, I will make sure he is comfortable while going to school because, like I said earlier, that is the best we can do for him."
