Suleyman’s West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) results went viral because he scored 8As in all of the subjects he sat for.

Regardless of his excellent results, the graduate of Sunyani Senior High School couldn’t further his education to the tertiary level because of financial difficulty.

His plight caught the attention of the Nigerian musician, who shared a tweet asking for netizens to help him find Suleyman. The tweet which reads, "Please locate him for me," has been shared widely since.

Suleyman was successfully found afterwards, with the help of netizens.
