Gbenga Lloyd Adesanya, a bright Nigerian who spent more than 7 years working as a local tailor in his own country, received an exceptional degree from Nottingham Trent University in Nottingham, United Kingdom.

Gbenga, who just lost his father, was well-known for having put in seven years of arduous work as a local tailor in Sagamu, South-West, Nigeria, developing into a skilled fashion designer.

His brother, Michael Adesanya took to his LinkedIn profile to celebrate Gbenga on his accomplishment. “Gbenga Lloyd Adesanya – from master of local fashion hustle in Lagos Island to Masters in International Fashion Management from Nottingham Trent University,” Michael wrote on his profile.

Michael continued by saying that his brother Gbenga had overcome several obstacles to earn a master’s degree in international fashion management. He claimed that Gbenga narrowly avoided dying when he was a child.

“Gbenga, thank you for surviving as a still born, thank you writing JAMB 4 times, thank you for being a dedicated local tailor for 7 years,” Micheal wrote about Gbenga.
