The actor, who was feeling emotional about the 34-year-old photo, shared the story behind it. He revealed that on the day of his matriculation, he slept dejectedly in his hostel because he had no cloth to wear for the ceremony.
Thankfully, his roommate came to his aid and offered him his suit. Man devises means to make dead mum attend his graduation ceremony.
Read his full story below:
“I look at this picture and tears of joy freely flow down my cheeks. It was taken on my matric day in 1986 at UNIFE now OAU. Ealier in the day I stood forlorn and downcast. The university was agog with matriculation celebration which I had no hope of attending because I had no suits or any befitting clothes for the occasion. “Then he tapped me gently on my shoulder and woke me from the stream of sorrow. “Hello Hafiz are you not attending matriculation?” he asked.
I looked up, I was speechless. I looked at myself disdainfully. Then he said “I understand don’t worry I will borrow you my suit. I hope it’s your size.” In my mind I asked my self, “what if it’s not my size? Wizkid’s die-hard fan recreates singer’s MIL album cover and he got it! (photos) “Then another voice inside me shouted “Hafiz! Will you follow him and collect the suit, you think you have a choice? Does size matter at this moment?” and I thought about it then I answered “it doesn’t matter.”
The voice said “collect the stuff jo MUMU” Yes the voice in me was right. I was ready to wear any size. Moment later I came out well dressed and ready to mingle with my mates. I wish I could see that my roommate now to say thank you.”

It’s has been 16yrs I tested positive for HIV – Gay activist, Bisi Alimi says as he celebrates World AIDS Day
Nigerian Gay activist, Bisi Alimi is celebrating World AIDS Day 16 years after he tested positive for HIV.
In his post, he said the first four years after he was diagnosed with HIV was tough for him because of the stigma and the discrimination he faced at the time.
According to him, he’s been able to overcome all of that following the support and love from the people that matter to him.
Sharing a photo of his blood sample being extracted from his arm, he wrote:
On this World AIDS Day, I want to share this again. It’s has been 16yrs I tested positive for HIV. 16yrs I have been living with the virus. The first 4yrs was hard and tough for me, not because of the virus, but because of the stigma and the discrimination and shame. I look back at those 16yrs and where I am today and there is no better way to say this; the resilience and support and love of the people that matter has kept me alive, kept loving, and kept me inspired.
If you are living with HIV, please know that it is no more a death sentence and you can actually live positively with HIV.
Finally, I hope you will acknowledge and appreciate that you are all you have and this life is a gift and what others say or think about you is not your business, but theirs.
Happy World AIDS Day
Broken hearted lady reveals how she spent on four guys but was later dumped
A broken hearted lady has taken to the microblogging platform, Twitter to narrate how she spent huge sums of money on four guys but was later dumped.
In a tweet, the lady revealed that she is currently broke after spending on those guys for nothing. She said that the only thing that matters to her is a man who is willing to spoil her and love her as she is.
She wrote; “I’m broke and I remember how stupid I’ve been. I remember how I carried 50k that I got from savings and went to see man in Lagos. Bought foodstuff, fuel and DStv sub only for goat to leave me inside house and take another babe to a beach hangout with the 10k he borrowed from me.
Oga switched off his phone and I was stupidly panicking only for him to come back and lie that he fell inside ditch. The lie was so stupid and I was willing to believe him until I saw the babe posting pictures with “Her baby”. I want mad.
Or was it the one I was cooking with my money for and him and his cousin still had efforntery to be telling me rubbish and when he was cheating. Baba go dey fly babe come Abuja but I’d be using my own money to do road trip. I suffered.
Or is it the one I gave 350k because he said he was involved in an accident but Baba disappeared with my money till today and I had to drop out of school. Or is it the one I saw his wedding pictures on Instagram after us spending a weekend that I footed the bills together
Don’t be stupid like me sha because it took a lot for me to finally learn that men would be wicked to you unprovoked. If you don’t have money now, don’t move me abeg. I’m not an independent woman anymore and I want to eat your money. Tainks and God bless.”
She went on to advise her fellow ladies not to fall prey to men like she did.
