Viral street boy from Aba Fashion Week reportedly gets endorsement

Fortune has smiled on a Nigerian street boy who went viral after being daring enough to strut the red carpet during the recently held 2023 Aba Fashion Week in Abia state.

The teen whose name is yet to be known had set the internet abuzz when he walked the runway in his knock off Adidas T-Shirt, a pair of slip-ons and ripped three-quarter jeans.

He was crowned the best runway model by attendees of the event and just as his story circulated on social media, a business mogul and philanthropist, Dr. Chima Anyaso decided to take him off the streets and give him an education.

Anyaso got the young boy a special invite to Adidas regional office in Nigeria and he was able to shop for the original outfit. The businessman was also said to have secured an endorsement deal for the lucky kid.
