Any Nigerian Twitter user who uses the microblogging platform regularly must have seen the viral photo of a kid with a funny frown while collecting a gift.
In recent weeks, the photo has been used as a meme for different kinds of conversations and responses. Amid the trend, the Nigerian man behind the photo that was taken several years back, has finally spoken up.
The young man with Twitter handle @EvansTed101 claimed it was his photo as he placed a present snap of himself beside it using the “How it started vs How it’s going” tag.
Interestingly, not long after he surfaced and identified himself, he started receiving multiple DMs, but one that stood out for him was that of a Twitter user asking for his bank account details.
”Someone just asked for my account number and sent me money”, he tweeted.
@EvansTed101 whose real name is Tedunjaiye Evans, obliged and before he could get a chance to out the person for giving him false hope, he received an alert.
He took to Twitter to tell followers of the money sent to him as she shared a screenshot of his chat with the anonymous benefactor.
