He said bailing oneself out of the less privileged circle is by showcasing "uncommon knowledge", adding that one becomes irresistible by doing so.
Adeniyi shared a picture in which he was flanked by two roadside mechanics to show his humble beginning.
He said: "I like sharing this picture because it reminds me of a time I worked with roadside mechanics as a University Engineering Student for 6 months and was never paid a kobo. I felt cheated but what I learned was priceless.
"Today I tell my mechanic what to fix and replace. I troubleshoot and do the mental work. I save some cash there."
He assured people that are struggling to make it that the future ahead of them is a good one. He said they should make sure that they are growing professionally and intellectually and monitor their growth.
