By Rita Chioma,
Fast rising Instagram comedian, Wofai has decided to inspire her followers with her grass to grace story today.
The Calabar-born comedienne revealed the humble days when she was hawking in school and on the streets.
She also listed and appreciated those who stood by her during the trying times.
“Thank God. I don’t look like what I’ve been through. I just went through some of my old Facebook photos, the struggle got me all emotional. Can’t believe
I’m now a testimony. Most of you that knew me in community secondary school ,ugep must have bought my ice cream before. They used to call I,and my sis @mimzewa “ice cream girls” she couldn’t take it. She ran to America.
I never really concentrated in class , because I always wanted to rush to the park with my cooler of ice cream and pure water for passengers coming back from Enugu to the park. From selling of buns ,
hawking of mango, water leaves , oranges
To buying and selling of okrika from Balogun market, to unical, selling of drinks in different clubs ,catwalking for various designers without pay ,hosting weddings and all events ,
Ushering people in and out different occasions,
Running away from home to Lagos
becoming who Iam today
It’s a miracle.
Thanks to @Obazi_kubor for letting me squat with you, when I first came. I won’t lie. Lagos has been good to me. God promised to take care of me,and he hasn’t failed me ! He hasn’t even started ……. He did the final gbosa! For me recently. I can’t say it yet. Cos it still looks like a dream to me.
I’ve never typed a message this long before, but something told me to do this today. Because it might inspire someone.
NEVER EVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS !! God is seeing all your struggle,” she recalled.
