''Eleven (11) years ago, I met this young man in school, and we became good friends, always there for each other. We struggled in school, so I had to get a temporal job at De-Lux Paints in Industrial Area while in school.
''One faithful afternoon, my friend approached me with a worried and sad face seeking GH¢3,00 for food. I had enough money that day, so I gave him around GH¢60 or GH¢80,'' he recalled.
Nartey recounted that after giving his friend the money, his buddy said things had been difficult for him for some time for him.
''The excess money I gave him for food, surprisingly, he used part of the money for the United States of America (USA) Visa Lottery, and graciously, when the results came out, he won.''
Nartey posted photos of his friend's massive transformation from grass to grace, which drew comments from people.
