From being jailed in Switzerland to residing in Lekki! This Nigerian Painter's story will inspire you

Here's an inspiring story of a Painter, who made lemonade out of the lemons life gave him. His story was told by Gossy Ukanwoke, who is an Equity Investor in Rhema University Nigeria.

According to Gossy, the man who now paints for him, went to Italy as an illegal immigrant and then found his way to Switzerland from there.

However, while hustling on the streets on Switzerland to makes ends meet, he was jailed for 5years for illegal street trading, and took up classes while in jail. He's now a skilled painter, and now lives in Lekki after his deportation.

Here's his tweets;

  1. This is what Jail should be like. A chance to rehabilitate a person. So they come out before than they entered and can become productive members of society. Nigeria when are we going to get to this level? Chai

  2. Are u sure you are not the painter yourself?
