Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that in an exclusive interview, a 22-year-old man, who finished high school in 2015, said he learnt photography for a bit. He disclosed that he had to stop photography after two years because of his mother’s failing health and assist so that her business would not crumble.
Jimoh revealed that pap-making is a very lucrative business and that was why he decided to give it full focus in 2018. On his education, he said:
“Yeah, I wrote about NOUN school programme last year, I had to suspend my education at NOUN, due to that I wanted to stay focus and build my brand to a stage that even if I'm away, it will function without me and orders will be delivered. As soon as my prayers are answered and the business gets stabilised, I should go back to continue my schooling.”
The young man, who lost his dad almost 19 years ago, disclosed that he had the opportunity to meet the Ekiti state governor, Kayode Fayemi, after his post went viral. With help from kind sponsors, he was also able to get a befitting grinder to replace the one his mother used for about 13 years.
He also completed the building where the pap is made. On his 22nd birthday, the man was celebrated in Kogi by the state's deputy governor where he was given an award. The young businessman said that people sometimes look down on the business because of how messy the work environment can be during production.
Despite everything he has been through, Jimoh has been able to inspire a lot of people to strive hard and create worthy ventures.
