Abdullahi Olatoyan has been in the spotlight ever since he was captured by celebrity photographer, Daniel Sync, washing windscreen dressed in a suit. Abdullahi’s life transformed from that very moment he was captured doing his job and he was tagged by CNN as The World Most Dapper Squeegee Man.
According to him, he began washing windscreens in traffic wearing a suit and always hoped one day he would return to the University to complete his studies. “I didn’t want to be wandering the streets doing nothing” he explains, adding he wanted to make sure people knew he was serious about his work. “He is the first suited windscreen cleaner I have ever seen”, says photographer Daniel Sync, who decided to take photos. “We need more innovative citizens like Abdulahi in Nigeria”, he added.
The 30-yr-old man who is currently a fashion intern shows some lovely style looks in La Mode Magazine editorial fashion shoot.
