Popular socialite, Obi Iyiegbu, popularly known as Obi Cubana, has promised to offer scholarship to Ekuma Jeremiah, a young hawker, who was caught on camera in Ajah area of Lagos, giving money to prisoners being transported to prison.
Cubana made the disclosure in a short Instagram live interview with a broadcaster and radio talk show host, Ifedayo Olarinde popularly known as Daddy Freeze.
He declared his intention to sponsor the young boy’s tertiary education in any institution of his choice.
“Love should be shown in our actions and not just in our words. I want to meet the young boy who despite being a hawker, gave N100 notes to people in a prison van and was not even aware that he was been filmed by a concerned passerby who was driving on the same road.”
“Anyone who knows him should connect the boy with Daddy Freeze or me. I want him to go to school in good condition, and I would see him through the University, and if he wants to do his Masters degree abroad, I would also make sure that he is comfortable while going to school because his generosity touched me.
“I would do whatever he wants for him, and by God’s grace, when he is done in school he would get a top-level position at any of my organisations, and if he, however, finds a higher calling, he is free to do as he pleases. The most important thing is that I want him to know that he now has a mentor who would guide him through this tough world.”
