A dad-of-one has trousered a 1.1 billion Naira lottery win only weeks after losing his job due to the coronavirus pandemic.

After winning he said the jackpot gave him complete relief as he can now take care of his young family without any worry

He will be receiving around N4.6 million a month for the next 20 years.

A new dad has scooped a £2.4 million (N1.1 billion) lottery win just weeks after losing his job due to the coronavirus pandemic that has left the world in a limbo.

The unnamed winner who is said to be in his 20s, from Adelaide, Australia, had been so stressed and worried about how he would support his family after being made unemployed.

But all that changed in a stunning turnaround of fortune when his numbers came up in the lottery and he won the top prize in Australia’s the Lott’s Set For Life game, Mirror reported.

“I checked my online account last night and saw I had won. I woke up my wife to tell her and she screamed,” the winner was quoted by The Lotto.

“It is unbelievable! I checked my online account so many times to see if it was real, it is a wonderful feeling,” he added

It is safe to say that his, and his family’s, life will never be the same after he netted the huge amount.

At the Easter weekend, he won the Set for Life jackpot, meaning he will receive around £10,000 (N4.6m) a month for the next 20 years.

He had also recently welcomed his first child with his wife and will use the cash to buy their first home.

“We are a young family and we have a baby, so this will set us up for the rest of our lives,” said the man.

“I recently lost my job because of COVID-19, and so this just gives me complete relief. I have been so stressed lately, but now I am so happy,” he added.

The Australian dad purchased his ticket online at thelott.com, which has since been confirmed by officials.

Speaking of his wife’s plans he said she wanted to do everything, a new car, holidays, a new house, not just any house but their dream house.

He has become the eighth person to win the Set for Life pot in 2020.

Miley Cyrus recently announced her new album Plastic Hearts and it has taken over social media. This album is super personal and pays tribute to some of her biggest music inspirations.

Announcing the new album, Miley revealed that it would drop on November 27, 2020. Miley has paid tribute to the likes of Blondie and the Cranberries on this album as well as many issues that fall close to home, like the 2018 California wildfires. Taking to social media to make the announcement, Miley expressed the emotion and rawness behind this album. Miley sent some mad love out to her fans for making this album and her entire career possible. Reading this post reflects all that Miley has put into this album and gives fans the opportunity to understand and appreciate the process that much more. I began this album over 2 years ago. Thought I had it all figured out. Nature did what I now see as a favour and destroyed what I couldn’t let go of for myself. I lost my house in a fire but found myself in its ashes.

In triumph and gratitude, I present to you my 7th studio record, Plastic Hearts. To be released Nov. 27th 2020.”
