The Guinness Made of Black team today, September 8, 2015 paid a visit to two outstanding citizens in the city of Lagos, recognising them as #madeofblack heroes.

The surprise visit by the #madeofblack team was to appreciate them for their consistency, hard work and dedication.

First was Adekunle Adebisi, a young handicapped man who sweeps the pedestrian bridge at Town Planning Anthony in Lagos. Adebisi who lost his hands a long time ago was nominated by a daily commuter, Henry.

Henry says Adekunle’s dedication to the job was inspiring and he admired him very much. Nominating Adekunle, Henry says, was a way of cheering the zeal his (Adekunle) job, regardless of the circumstances. Henry says Adekunle is his hero.

Adekunle is definitely Made of Black! He is a Lagos City #madeofblack hero!

Another nominee was Mrs Josephine Ukeme, a policewoman, who received quite a number of nominations. Ukeme works effortlessly, day in, day out at Yaba, making sure there is free flow of traffic. Little wonder she received loads of nominations from thankful ‘fans’.

If Ukeme isn’t Made of Black material, then we wonder who is as she’s got the Made of Black attitude, a hero's spirit.

Do you know someone in your city who is doing something extraordinary? Now is the time to nominate him/her as you hero, a #madeofblack citizen! Log on to the Guinness Facebook page to do so: https://www.facebook.com/GuinnessNigeria
