He recalls a recent encounter, ‘I saw one old woman who really needs help on Instagram, then I instructed my team to help trace her that I would love to touch her life. I didn’t mind the fact that I am based in South- Africa, I was ready to continue doing the good job of reaching out to the old people. I don’t know anything about this particular old woman but luckily I got enough information and sent money and food items to her through my team in Nigeria. This is just an instance. I have lost counts of people I’v reached out to home and abroad.”

For the international performing artiste, there are also certain measures the government of Nigeria and celebrities should take to jointly elevate the lives of average Nigerians.

“The government should make provisions for the citizens to have good infrastructures. Create better job opportunities. Steady power supply, make lives easy and smooth for all. For the celebrities, I also want to plead to them to reach out to as much people as they can. We can jointly make Nigeria a better place for us all,” he opined.
