The man identified as Ajayi Oluwatobi shared his transformed look in spite of remaining in the country and captioned it 'I stayed.'
In the Twitter post he made on Thursday, March 4 he recreated a photo he had taken 8 years ago in which he was corporately dressed and was seated in what appeared to a car park as he read a newspaper.
The tweet which had garnered over 27k love reactions as of the time of making this report got mixed reactions with many amazed at his transformed look.
"No disrespect but I honestly d¤n't see the point of this cos I believe u were doing well in 2012; Even in year 2012 u were very fortunate. "Gratitude turns what we have into enough". The trend "Before and now" was n¤t meant to be a sh¤w¤ff. Thank God for ur growth though."
"You started growing beard and waves on your hair. You moved from a silver to a gold wristwatch. And your white became more fitted as it sparkles. You also stopped slouching. You've always been fascinated by cars.
"That's progressive growth."
"May God continue to bless you brother. Don't mind the mediocre doing when I left and now."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a young lady turned down opportunities to move to the US, Canada, America and Germany because she loves Nigeria.
The lady, however, admitted that her decision was tough on her initially but things gradually took shape for her. The young lady maintained that if times were turned, she would still choose to stay in Nigeria than abroad.
Her patriotism and stance earned her praises from other Nigerians. One LinkedIn user recommended that she be conferred an award for her decision.
