– A Nigerian man identified as Chukwuma Ekeh has stunned social media with how he joined the millionaires club just from wheelbarrow business
– Chukwuma who had worked as a houseboy teamed up with a stranger to start up a wheelbarrow making and rental venture in Anambra
– They now boast of a workforce of 20 employees and have touched many lives
Success, they say, is when preparation meets opportunity. But Chukwuma Ezeh’s story doesn’t follow this narrative.
The young man shared on Twitter how he became a millionaire with wheelbarrows. He had not planned for this as he worked as a houseboy in Delta.
The idea came from a stranger that supplies him polythene bags at the market. The stranger identified as Boniface later turned out to be his partner in the business.

The two businessmen started with 6 wheelbarrows, according to him, and grew to the point where they employed more hands and got the business registered.
Chukwuma said now they have 20 employees who make returns to them.
Plus, he has been able to diversify into other ventures with the money he makes from the enterprise.
“We started small with 6 barrows. I owned 5. Boniface owned one. We charged our employees; The barrowmen 200 naira (51 cents) per day for renting the barrows. It seems small but it’s tiny, consistent drops of money like these, if properly channeled that creates oceans of wealth!”
His story gained traction on Twitter as many thought they were motivating.
“Many would have looked down on 200 naira per Barrow for a day , some will even call you small for venturing into such business ,it takes a man with vision deep understanding of how money works to start such. Well done chief greater you I pray.”
“People love fast money but they didn’t know that the more time it takes to make money, the more experience and connections you gather.”
“This is actually a bold move from you.”
