Popular Nollywood actor, Oyetoro Hafiz, a.k.a Saka has come out to recount an experience he had on his matriculation day many years ago.
He recently revealed that he actually felt dejected because he didn’t have a suit for his matriculation at OAU, Ife.
According to him, while others went for the ceremony, he stayed back and was not expecting to attend until God came through for him via a roommate who gave him his suit.
He added that he did not even care if the suit was his size or not because he had no choice but to wear it.
See the photo he shared,
His words, “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?”
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.
GOD will be meeting us at every point of our needs. Happy Thursday. … IT IS WELL.”
