In another photo, he was looking dapper in a suit as he posed by an aeroplane at the airport.

The two photos show how his life changed after he met Tunde, who is known for helping less privileged children to become better.

Tunde said while posting the photos:

"Thinking about Ayomide today. We met him as an Area boy under oshodi bridge a little over a year ago but is now a Web developer and graphics designer. No longer a pawn in another man's game, but the hero of his own story.
"I take him with me on my flights to Abuja and visits to important people so he sees how valuable his existence is. One day, he'll get to pay it forward and only then will our work truly be done."
