British-Nigerian actor, John Boyega has surprised his parents with a house he bought for them.
The Star Wars actor took to social media to share a video of the new home describing it as his best moment since rising to fame.
Boyega said that the house was a token of his appreciation for everything they have done for him and their prayers.
The 28-year-old screen star presented the house gift to them with a prank after he took them to the house under the guise that he wanted to interview them.
Upon their arrival at the house, he revealed to them that the house belongs to them.
In the Instagram video he shared, he said that such moments make all the hard work worth it.
At the presentation, he said:
“This is just my physical appreciation, honestly from the bottom of my heart… It’s a small token… but I just thought it’s best that you live in an environment, and place where you’re happy and you have space and privacy. “It’s your prayers that have got this… because the skill and ability that I’ve received have been from your prayers, and I cannot ignore what God has used my parents to do in my life…”
