Nigerian music superstar, Wizkid, isn't just known for putting out good music, apparently, he is also a man of his words as seen in the life of a young boy whose life took a turn for the better in 2018.
Two years after Wizkid reached out and offered to help young Basit, his life has changed completely.
New photos trending online shows a much happier and healthy Basit in his school uniform, and another one which shows him in the school magazine.
In the video which had trended online, Basit was seen spotting a presumed Gucci shirt as he worked on a car.
Turning to the camera, he is heard saying in Yoruba:
"There’s money. We wear Gucci to do vulcanising job. If I want six, I can get it. If I want 100, I can get it."
Below is the throwback video of Basit alongside recent photos:
