Godwin Osimhen: From Newspaper Vendor on the Streets of Lagos to Stardom


Little was known of Godwin Osimhen, the top scorer at the recently concluded 2015 FIFA Under 17 World Cup held at Chile, until he lit up the world stage with his goals.

The same lad who is being applauded today was just a newspaper vendor who supported his family by running  after customers in Lagos traffic and ensuring enough sales were made to make them happy.

That story has changed today. But what does this teach us as Nigerian youths? Irrespective of your humble beginning, you can rise above your present not-so-good situations to a stage where the world around you will take note of your potentialities.

Never give up! You are too close to your breakthrough than you think. You need to stay focused. Know what you want and keep moving in that direction. If the approach you are using today is not working, try a different approach, but stay focused on attaining your goals.

Congrats Godwin Osimhen... wishing you the best in your footballing career.
