We have a saying that can be loosely translated to mean this: that people become ugly only when they are broke. 

And that saying holds true, at least as affirmed by the 'before and after' success photo of former Super Eagles defender Taiye Taiwo.

Here is the Nigerian superstar before he sprang to the spotlight:

Taiwo Taiwo suffered as a youngster and struggled to meet up with his needs.

The energetic defender was seen as an ugly man because of his looks. He was even abused and called all sorts of names.

His path to success started in the street of Lagos where he played series of Jeun Jeun and grassroots competitions.

Taiwo played for Gabros International in the Nigerian League before taking his game to Lobi Stars of Makurdi.

The successful run in his career was when he played an important role for Nigeria who finished second at the 2005 FIFA U20 World Cup. He was the third best player behind Lionel Messi and John Obi Mikel.

On his CV are stints at Olympique de Marseille, AC Milan, Queens Park Rangers, Dynamo Kyiv, Bursaspor, HJK Helsinki, Lausanne, AFC Eskilstuna, RoPS, Doxa Katokopias and Trallwm FC. The 54-cap Nigeria international is currently at Palm Beach Stars in the United Premier Soccer League.

And here are recent photos of the father of two children:

Indeed no condition is permanent!

What was the most memorable moment of Taiye Taiwo as a Super Eagles player?

Don't forget to drop your compliments for Taiye Taiwo.
