They say opportunity knocks once at a man's door. This is exactly what happened for one street couple a couple of years ago when a random photographer going by the name of Johnson Muchiri came across Sammy and Virginia and changed their lives.

The day was 14th February 2017 and the two lovebirds were busy cherishing each others company at Uhuru Park when Muchiri took photos of the couple and within no time the two were trending.

People of goodwill and wellwishers soon came on board and soon their fortunes were completely transformed. The two received sponsored trips and got their lives completly transformed. They also got jobs in the process.

About two years later rumours started flying around that Sammy better known as bkackie and his wife Virginia were back in the streets after they failed to keep jobs due to been used to receiving handouts as opposed to working.
