A Nigerian teenager, Prosperity Olorunfemi, has declared himself a millionaire at the age of 17.
In a LinkedIn post, Olorunfemi, who runs a digital business said he came to the realisation after tracking his financial records.
The teenager who is a content creator and a digital marketer amongst others, according to his bio on LinkedIn, claimed to have borrowed money from a friend to start his own business in 2021.
"So yesterday, I decided to track my financial records and I discovered that my business did a whooping 1.1 million Naira in total credit within six months...
"I can proudly call myself a self-made millionaire at 17."
Speaking to Legit, Olorunfemi opened up on how he started his online business.
"When I graduated from secondary school in 2019, I had a strong belief in the possibilities of earning online. But my obstacle was a phone. I couldn't get a phone no matter what I tried and my parents were also not willing at this period."
"Later in 2021, my mum handed over her used and hanging phone to me and I started up with that online. July 2021, I borrowed money from a friend to start my own business. I bought earpods from China and sold them online to people."
As of the time of filing this report, WuzupNigeria is yet to verify the teenager's claims.
