Corper Dayo captured public attention after a video surfaced on social media showing him engaging in a callisthenics training session with pupils from King’s College.

The Corps member’s enthusiastic performance drew praise from many, despite initial attempts by a Twitter user named Chioma to mock his efforts with a caption, “On top 33k?”

The Commissioner for Youth and Social Development, Mobolaji Ogunlende, took notice of the video and expressed eagerness to meet Dayo, impressed by his patriotic and energetic spirit.

In a post on his social media account dated Sunday, February 25, 2024, Ogunlende confirmed his meeting with the UI graduate and announced the state’s decision to appoint him as a Youth Ambassador.

“Captivated by @osapline the passionate corps member serving at Kings College, Lagos. I did not only find myself drawn by this online discourse but also with Mr. Governor. In light of this impact.

“I am honored to Welcome @osapline as the Latest Youth Ambassador of Lagos State,” his tweet read.
