- The photos of two friends have become a source of interesting conversations about the importance of relocating abroad
- Looking scruffy in front of bags of beans in the market, their transformation photo taken in London shows how far they have succeeded
- Many people said the friends just stoked their passion to leave Nigeria as soon as possible
The change of social status of two Nigerian friends has got many people talking on social media. In 2018, the young men posed in front of sacks of beans.
Years after, a 2021 photo has both of them looking lively and finer in London. Nigerians said theirs is a perfect example that anybody's story can change at any time.
There were also those who said what makes some people look old and unkempt is the situation they are battling with.
While one of the friends with the Twitter handle @RoyalKingUsman did not directly say that they were traders in the throwback photo, the snap suggests it.

Meanwhile, Briefly News earlier reported that in another Twitter post on Tuesday, March 2, one of two friends with the handle @No4troublemaker shared a throwback photo of when they were students at the University of Benin.
The second snap showed them in Munich, Germany several years later. What was obvious in both photographs was how their skins went from being dark to fair. The change in weather probably had a lot to do with their new pigmentation.
