She wrote:

"I was a very regular customer at the place restaurant Surulere, last year. I had visited the place countless times to get food and seen Gbolahan quite often as he attended to me a number of times until the day it clicked! I looked at him as he printed my bill over the desk, and I said to myself, how come I haven’t seen this? How did it take me so long to realize? Well, without hesitating, I took out my phone and made the first video on the slide. Sent it straight to my boss.
"He said interesting can we see more without his cap, and that was how we started. Today, Gbolahan, from behind the desk as a restaurant server boy in Lagos, Nigeria, made his first debut in Milan, for Fendi."
