You know what they say about catching them young. Well, this young barber seems to have taken his destiny into his own hands.
Not only is he making a living, he is earning far more than most people with a regular job would earn at the end of the month.
An Instagram User, Chygoz, shared the photo of the 10-year-old entrepreneur named Olalekan.
According to Chygoz, Olalekan charges N1000 per haircut and he is the most wanted barber at the salon where he works.
The photo of Olalekan shaving a customer's beard was captioned, "Meet Olalekan, the wonder kid barber responsible for my cut. He's 10 years old, in JSS1 and he earns at least 5,000 naira daily from barbing.....
"Parents please stop training your children like toys. Those little kids you see at home have more in them than you can imagine... Help their future, give them a chance."
Not a lot of parents entertain hobbies in their children, especially if the hobby isn't 'socially approved' of but guess what? Hobbies have become a big deal these days.
A lot of kids are feeding their families with different kinds of hand works and where better to be than in Lagos state with its inflated prices and pretentious people with fake lives.
