He said opting to work as a lender came with challenges, especially knowing he did not return to the country with much money.

This situation, he confessed, forced him to sell off family properties in order to be in a good position to lend to people.

"To be honest, I didn't come from the UK with money. If I recall, I had to sell family properties like Plasma TVs, home theatres, and freezers to generate a little money that would enable me to disburse or lend to people."

The adorable video, which highlights the essence of hard work and determination, had raked in over 100,000 views and 147 comments at the time of writing this report.
