A young lady has sparked mixed reaction after she was captured on the street with cardboard seeking sponsorship for her recent work.
The lady named Kamo in a post shared on Twitter by @phalanndwa6 was seen raising about four different cardboards with different messages but somewhat in an organized fashion.
The first cardboard in the first frame read that she needs help, the second went on to reveal that she is a published author and wants to sell her recent work titled Chase The Dream for N5,000.
In the other cardboards she was seen holding, she appealed for sponsors to help her donate her book to high school learners.
The tweet which got over 8k reactions had tongues wagging. While some pointed out some errors in the cardboards she raised and wondered why an author will make such mistakes, others encouraged her.
"People won’t support your dream. Just work hard for yourself and achieve your dream, they will support you after!"
"Let’s not overlook those who are where they are today because someone or some people helped them. There’s no manual to these things. Maybe for her, calling out for help is her last resort..,seeing that her book is already published."
"The spelling of learners is so questionable since well u wrote a book."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a desperate man had carried cardboard to beg for job in viral photos seen on social media.
