A Nigerian man has taken to social media to celebrate his advancement in life as left the shores of the country.
He worked as a bricklayer several years to make ends meet and recently got the opportunity to relocate to the United Kingdom.
The middle-aged man shared a video clip which captured how he moved from a low income earner to now living abroad.
In the flashback of him as a labourer, he stood close to an uncompleted house, while sporting dressed in ruffled up work clothes.
Fast-forward to present day, the man showed himself standing in snow in Manchester, rocking a jacket and sweat shirt while beaming with smiles over his new reality.
“If God sends us on stony paths, He provides strong shoes,” the caption read.
Social media users celebrated his personal development and progress in life while some tapped into his blessings.
