There is pride in every work one does to earn a living in as much as it is not an illegal endeavour. Nobody should be ashamed of their source of livelihood.

A 100 level Nigerian student identified as Jimoh John Yakubu has taken a great honour in his work as he shared it on Twitter on Sunday, August 9.

Yakubu said that pap making is his hustle and it is what pays his bill as well as his school fees at National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN).

The 21-year-old entrepreneur and an Ado Ekiti resident added that he makes the pap in different varieties.

In the photos attached to the tweet, he could be seen standing close to prepared big buckets of the pap. Behind him is a grinder that mills the corn in the preparation process.

His post has gathered over 19,000 likes as at the time of writing this report. It also got many positive reactions as someone even hinted at the possibility of a partnership with him.

In a separate tweet, he appreciated everyone who took out the time to make him go viral and offer positive feedback as he also replied to those who said the environment looked untidy.

He tweeted:

Thanks to those that have helped in retweeting my pap post. I see your suggestions and advice. There's no way pap won't stain the ground and containers.
"I will surely work on the environment with tiles and make the area look appealing once I get needed funds. Thank you."

Meanwhile, earlier reported that just when you think Nigerians have reached the limit of their creativity, stories like that of Favour Oluma, a young lady, amaze you anew.

The young Nigerian lady is into the craft of converting old car tyres into grand tables that can fit into any modern home.

A student of the Federal University of Technology, Minna, she could be seen in the production process of the table in one of the pictures she shared on Twitter.
