The video young boy from Ibadan has been trending on Instagram after Tunde Ednut shared it on his page. Comedian, AY also shared the video raising awareness that the intelligent kid deserves to go to school and he would see to that.
“@funmiawelewa if you get Taju’s details pls share with me. Lets send him to school to let our interviewer in the video know that the smart kid is willing to learn”
Hours after the initial post, AY did a follow-up post, announcing that Don Jazzy reached out to him, promising to support the course to send Taju to school with N500, 000. In the post, AY appreciated the efforts of Adeniyi Johnson, Funmi Awelewa and Tayo Sobola who shared the video to his notice.
He also beckoned on other well meaning Nigerians to support the course, naming Falz, Mo Abudu, Kehinde Bankole and the head of SMADE Events. He stated that their involvement would help the course greatly.
Peep his post below.
@donjazzy just reached out to me with 500k waiting for little Taju to go to school. We are still waiting to get proper information concerning meeting with him and his parents in Ibadan. Many thanks to @sotayogaga @funmiawelewa @adeniyijohnson who shared the video to our notice. I am so sure with the involvement of @moabudu @falzthebahdguy @iamsmade @_kehindebankole @iambimbothomas and other well meaning Nigerians we shall make this happen to many other Tajus out there. God bless you all. #tajugoestoschool
