Opportunity Meets Preparedness & Talent! Watch the Inspiring Video of Saturday the Gate Man



Screen Shot 2016-03-23 at 12.29.35

A BellaNaijarian shared this video with us and we’re so glad she did, because the story of this young man, Saturday has to be told!

He started out as the security guard, but he was also a talented illustrator. He kept drawing, and he kept trying to get his work out there.

Fortune smiled on him when the executive creative director of Insight Communications gave his drawings a second look.

Today, Saturday is now a staff of Insight Communications! Opportunity met with preparedness and his talent.

We’re so happy for Saturday and we believe that he will only go higher in his endeavours.

Watch the inspiring video here:

    I know this story.

    That E.D who I know personally has one of the largest hearts who can imagine.

    It will be nice if we all let God use US to launch different kinds of greatness.

    Sometimes I think it is great, opportunities meet Germans. They can work in handy and ensure you a Flotus. What of Abacha?

    why did they need to compare Olajumoke to Saturday?
    This could have been more tastefully done!
    especially for people in communications – gosh!
    do not take away from another’s story just to make a point.
    people have got lucky before Jumoke and more people will.
    She has skills by the way – one that is well appreciated in the modelling industry.

    Love the story! Truly inspiring. God blessed his hustle man! For the life of me, i couldn’t picture him in as a security agent tho. Like i watched the video, and my brains couldn’t piece the two people in both scenarios as the same. AND HE’S CUTE TOO! Damn eet!

    Btw: Comparing olajumokes story to his story was not cool. THEY ARE BOTH TALENTED! Just in different fields. The sky is big enough for all peeps! We are very capable of LOVING THEM BOTH!

    You see how Nigerians/ bnaijarians just like free manna from heaven? Just 14 comments so far??? Haba naa! If it Olajumoke’s sheer luck/favour story, peeps will be tapping left, right n centre. Saturday created his own luck by God’s mercies. This man worked hard n dreamt harder. Even as a gateman, he positioned himself n his art to be seen by humbly showing it the MD. ***Lesson, know your worth, then go forth npossess your possessions.

    Love everything about this story except the comparison to Olajumoke. Like srsly, who is the interviewer that asked such dumb question? I’m glad the people being interviewed were quick to debunk the comparison and highlight the benefits of hardwork and honing your skills to be better at what you do.

    d only thing that came to my mind is that, there are some staffs dat would av looked down on him or talked to him rudely bcos he is a gate man, now dey are colleagues, dats watsaap, also, some ppl would turn down a security job espcially young folks cos of shame and pride, am sure he has an educational background no matter how little, see how God elevated him

      02 Academy is a hands on school of advertising. If you’re looking to work in advertising without experience, it’s your best bet and will help you build contacts in the industry too
