WINDSCREEN CLEANER, OLATOYAN ABANDONS STYLIST UCHE NNAJI WHO GAVE HIM A JOB; CATCH ALL THE MESSY DETAILS!
Celebrity stylist Uche Nnaji has parted ways with Olatoyan Abdullahi, the Abeokuta windscreen cleaner whose photos went viral weeks ago. According to the celebrity stylist, Olatoyan left over claims that Nnaji didn’t ‘transform’ his life as claimed.
Recall Olatoyan’s grass-to-grace story started almost like former breadseller Olajumoke Orisaguna after he was captured by a Nigerian photographer, Daniel Sync, while cleaning car screens on the streets of Abeokuta.
In his feature on CNN, Olatoyan said he took up the squeegee job with hopes that he would raise money to go back to school and conclude his studies.
Not long after his photos went viral, Nnaji, the CEO of OUCH, offered him a job, and Olatoyan resumed work at Nnaji’s Lekki office in Lagos. Now the duo have split up and Nnaji wrote a long note to explain what went wrong.
“[Olatoyan said] that we did not TRANSFORM his life OVERNIGHT like he expected,” Nnaji wrote in Instagram.
“Can somebody be kind enough to remind this guy that my name is Uche Nnaji, NOT Uche Olatoyan,” the enraged stylist said, adding, “Dude, I AM NOT YOUR FATHER, I owe you NOTHING!!! This sense of ENTITLEMENT is shocking. Whollup! Does this guy think I TRANSFORM destinies OVER NIGHT for living? That is solely as exclusive preserve of God the Miracle worker.”
