Malam Umar Wunti is a 43 year old native of Bauchi, capital of Bauchi state, northern Nigeria. Married with two wives and six children, he lives with them in an extended family home in Bauchi town. In 2000 he returned from Jos, Plateau state capital, where he was working as a shoe maker. In 2001, on one fateful day, a young boy brought a damaged soccer ball to him to mend. After successfully patching it he and doing the same for others, he was convinced he could make the ball from scratch with locally sourced materials.
Between 2001 and 2009, Malam Umar has trained well over 30 young boys and passers-bye on how to make soccer balls. A number of them are managing to make a living from it in different parts of Nigeria.
