According to the man who hawked on the streets of Badagry in Lagos, he had no business in America and earned his living as a staircase-vomit cleaner and picking up trash in parking lots. But today, the story is different.

@SQLBrethen stated that he moved from earning $8.25 per hour to landing a senior role in a Fortune 50 company where he receives a salary running into millions, all within the space of 4 years.

The successful man went on to commend everyone who has achieved success in Nigeria, stressing that it is much easier to make it in America.

His tweet gained huge traction as many agreed that, truly, Nigerians achieve success anywhere they find themselves.

@Ogbado stated:

"After reading the name tag... Nigerians survive anywhere. Congratulations sir."

"Congratulations!!!
"Are you not going to talk about the fact that he made $8.25/hr for cleaning!!!! Cleaners in Nigeria make that for doing much more work in a week."

@welustic commented:

"Literally the Nigerian American story right here. My cousin was doing valet parking and dishwashing while sustaining himself through college. Now he owns 15 homes in the US and works in a big Data firm."

Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that a young man who couldn't pay his school fees had achieved success in America.

The Nigerian scholar had before now seen his academic pursuits almost hit the rocks. In a celebratory post he made on Linkedln and seen by Briefly News, Samuel recounted his travails in secondary school.

He said he was made to repeat junior secondary school Class 3 years back simply because he wasn't financially buoyant to pay up his school fees which he described as not up to $3 then.
