Nigerian singer, Adekunle Gold has opened up on why he made the decision to give assistance to 2013 Project Fame winner, Olawale, who was spotted driving Uber recently.
The established singer made the revelation in a recent interview with Cool FM, where he mentioned that he was moved by Olawale’s action despite being a once celebrated icon in the country.
He also went further to give him a song he wrote after an experience in the United States in 2016, ensured he got a studio session and is currently shooting a video for him.
Speaking at Cool FM, Adekunle said;
“So there’s this guy called Olawale, he won Project Fame and I can’t remember which year. When I saw his video that went viral talking about him doing uber and how people have abused him on how do you go from winning Project Fame to riding Uber, and he was just being honest.
He was just saying I can’t steal, I don’t know how to steal, a man has to do what he has to do to fend for himself. And that touched me because that’s everything I’ve always been about. My essence is always just Work.
The dignity in labour is underrated in this country. People do so much, but they don’t get celebrated. You don’t even need to celebrated for what you are doing, but at least get rewarded. So it just touched me ‘I should help this guy’.”
