A 14-year-old boy learning the tiling trade from his skilled oga (employer) has found favour with Nigerians after a video of him working went viral.
A video of the boy named Jonathan was secretly captured by an Enugu-based female student, Orji Chidinma, who was amazed at his efforts.
Her initial video of Jonathan shared on TikTok got massive reactions from users who promised to support him should further information be provided.
This prompted Chidinma to engage Jonathan in subsequent videos, asking him about his background and desire to go to school.
She also gave him some cash to support him even as he said he’d be handing the money over to his boss to help him keep it.
Asked if he trusts his boss well enough to keep his money, the teenager said the man is reliable as he has proven he can be trusted in previous occasions.
In another clip, Chidinma spoke with Jonathan’s oga noting that social media users who stumbled on Jonathan’s video have offered to help fund his education and would like that a bank account be opened in Jonathan’s name.
Jonathan in one of his few interactions with Chidinma revealed that he stays with his oga in Enugu where they work while his parents are in the village in Ebonyi.
