Popular Nigerian singer, Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade, better known as Mr Eazi, has donated N5 million to African students stranded in Ukraine.
Amid the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine thousands of Africans are believed to be trapped in Ukraine, unable to leave or find a safe place to stay until they can be safely evacuated.
Speaking to CNN Africa, Anjola-Oluwa Ero-Phillips, a Nigerian medical student in Ukraine, said he and around 70 other Nigerian students are stranded with no way to legally leave Lviv in the west of the country, close to the border with Poland.
The ‘oh my gawd’ crooner was moved by their predicament and donated 5 million naira to a crypto wallet set up by a humanitarian organization to provide them with food and travel arrangement.
Nigerian comedian, Craze Clown, announced Mr. Eazi’s donation on Twitter moments ago and called on well-meaning Nigerians to also donate to the course.
“Thank you soooo much @mreazi for the huge donation of 5m naira to help African students stranded in ukraine 🙏🏾🙏🏾 please I urge everyone that can help one way or the other to do so… I will be sharing more links you can donate to. All Help is needed at this point 🙏🏾🙏🏾 it’s alot.” He wrote.
