Nigerian singer & songwriter, Waje has revealed that, she will not join her fellow celebrities in doing giveaway on social media.
The lockdown caused by the outbreak of coronavirus in Nigeria, has seen many celebrities rolling out money to people in need, in order to help them survive during this period.
According to Waje, the people who really need the money are not on social media but in the slums.
This actually popped up, when a fan tweeted:
“@OfficialWaje do giveaway.”
And the singer simply replied:
She further went on to say:
“Should I explain why? If you will allow me I will. See, this period is tough for everyone. Don’t be fooled by social media gimmicks but, the ones who have the hit are those in the slums, people who can’t even afford data. Nursing mothers with no food. Old people with no pension.
“So they are my focus, if I had more than enough, I’ll do giveaway but I don’t so what I have I give to #addacup that’s distributing food and basics to people in Lagos, Abuja, Akwa, Benin. Everyone has to do something. So I’m sorry I can’t do giveaway this season.”
“So don’t waste your time and send Acct details cause I can’t afford it. Addacup has my attention for now. Stay safe. God bless. No shame in speaking my truth. Some artist are doing giveaway, take advantage of their kindness and use it wisely.”
