In his words:

"....he was the one that brought the idea of that milky popcorn because he learned it somewhere in Kaduna. I choose this popcorn business because I still have the passion for it."

How talking about his business online helped him

The young man said that though the attention he got for his engaged tweet was not as he expected, he loved the way it has "socially" improved his business.

The popcorn seller added weather and events contribute a lot to how much one makes. He said:

"I make N10k-14k in a day because I just started not up to 2weeks there, I'm still expecting more."

My capital for the business

The young man who plies his trade at Iyana School said that his capital for the business is about three times his daily earnings. The capital is, however, excluding the money he paid for garage fees, show glass, and popcorn engine.

On his future plan for the business, he said:

"I have a big plan for my business, some of them is to register it or get a NAFDAC registration, make it official, name the business after my late mum, I planned to have branches across the 36 states in Nigeria and across Africa, I also planned to move it to Europe and other continents. I pray God makes it possible."
