Elvis Chidera, Village Boy Now a Global Programmer by hackman90: 6:08pm On Sep 06
Hello, Everybody after being away for a long time i decided to seek for help concerning a software project that i was to embark on so a young boy who i used to know 6years ago on nairaland came to my mind.Due to the fact that i could not remember his moniker i felt the need to search for him on google because i wasn't really clear about his nairaland moniker spelling so i searched for "Elvis Chidera" on google and what came up really got me amazed for those who knew how the little boy started should be happy also like i am.So today i took it upon myself to create an article of what i saw concerning this controversial passionate teenage programmer who started programming at the age of 11..He was always coming here to seek for financial assistance concerning his passion which was coding/robotics in which he got bashed concerning his identity(age) and also for being a fraud.
Here are posts on him for those of you that were active in the programming,webmaster,computer thread as at 2013/2014 that might have forgotten whom Elvis is:

https://www.nairaland.com/1340886/lessons-learned-elvis-scam-saga
https://www.nairaland.com/2097443/build-ecommerce-android-app

while some encouraged him because he spoke and took decisions like an adult at that tender age(14) even a fellow nairaland programmer(Graphics plus) had to go a bit further to verify his identity for nairaland doubters.He is the Founder of the Xmx.me app developed in J2ME sdk app which he built with a nokia 2690 gifted to him by his cousin.He also caught the attention of Seun Osewa who is the founder of Nairaland and Seun's words to him goes thus "When you are done with school(SSS3) i might consider employing you as a startup programmer".But all thanks to Seun and those who encouraged/Sponsored him and to those who discouraged him.He is now in the spotlight and being interviewed on different platforms across the Globe and all Grown up.
Moral Lesson:While on the path of pursuing your dreams/destiny stones would be thrown at you what you have to do is to pick them up and continue the race till you get there and watch those same people comeback to congratulate you-Hackman
