Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen has narrated how he sold pure water on the streets of Lagos while growing up.
The Lille player stated this in an interview with BBC during which he shared the struggles and challenges he faced before he made it in life.
“I came from a very poor background, seven children and I was the last born. I lost my mom at the age of six and it was very difficult for my family because my dad also lost his job around that period. So I was forced to go out and get myself a life.
“In Lagos, they sell water (bottle or sachet) which is the easiest, but the hardest because you have to run and give somebody the water and collect money.
“It wasn’t easy, but I had to do it and that set my path in which I will never give up in life no matter the situation or where I am and that gave me the zeal and momentum no matter what life throws at me.”
