In a previous report by YEN.com.gh, a homeless man proved that real wealth comes from within. The man was treated to groceries by a well-known Good Samaritan, BI Phakathi, and he decided to buy for his homeless friend too.
A video of the incident was shared by BI on his Facebook page. According to the footage, the homeless man's name is Michael.
He grew up in the streets after he was given up by his mother who couldn't afford to raise him. His story touched Phakathi who offered to buy him food.
