A young Nigerian man recently went viral after he was seen in a video with Brazilian footballer, Neymar Jr.

Many fans were curious as to how he was able to meet the PSG star who signed an autograph for him.

In the video, the guy known as Stanley was in the same room as Neymar and he wore a sleeveless which the football star signed on.

Speaking on how he travelled abroad and met the former Barcelona winger, he attributed the special privilege to the grace of God.

He, however explained that Neymar organised a competition many months ago and asked footballers around the world to upload videos of themselves to Instagram.

Stanley said he participated in the challenge and after posting his own video, Neymar picked his submission out of thousands.

He decided to clear the air that he is not the player’s PA because people have been begging him to connect them to Neymar.

Watch him share the story below:
