After chatting, they quickly realised that Rajah was in desperate need to return to his home city, Durban, but due to his dire circumstances, he wasn't able to.

Angels at work

Immediately after hearing his story, Phakathi and K.O handed the man some money and transferred another R10, 000 (N256,901) into his account.

A shocked and grateful Rajah couldn't contain his happiness and burst into tears. The financial relief makes it possible for him to follow his new dream of opening a spaza shop.

Social media reacts

Phakathi shared the video online and the post has gone viral in just a few days.

Drelyn Luke Govender said:

"This is amazing, keep up the awesome work and putting smiles on many faces may our King Jesus continue to bless you."

Colin Premlall remarked:

"This made me break down in tears, I feel so overwhelmed that we have angels walking with us that we don't realise. Everyday is beautiful and we should rejoice, rejoice and give thanks to the Almighty."

Lallie Naidoo thought:

"Bi you are an angel from God thank you for your good deeds."

Cindy Kotar said:

"Blessings to this man in his new path. May he carry his good fortune for the rest of his life. What you do for all these people brings me to tears of joy. The world is blessed to have you in it BI Phakathi, Thank you!"

Poor man who wasn't paid at work gifted N205k

Meanwhile, previously reported that a poor man who wasn't paid at work was gifted N205k by a stranger.

At the start of the short video shared on Facebook by Maria Ude Nwachi, the stranger set out for the day to give $500 (N205K) to the first person who hugs him.

The stranger ran into the poor man who rode a bicycle and made his unusual request for a hug.

The man smiled, complied and couldn't believe his eyes when he was handed the cash reward.
