While many Nigerian celebrities have turned social media to a donation centre with many account numbers of Nigerians all over the platforms for giveaways and freebies, some celebrities seems to have other ideas.
Nigerian singer, Waje in a statement explains why she wouldn’t do giveaway after a follower asked her for one.
A follower tweeted to Waje to “do giveaway,” she simply replied, “No”
She further explained that the period is tough for everyone and people shouldn’t be fooled by what they see on social media.
Waje stressed that if she wants to give, she will focus on people who are offline.
She wrote; “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.”
