Nigeria’s billionaire socialite, Obinna Iyiegbu known popularly as Obi Cubana has rewarded Ekuma Jeremiah, the bottle water hawker who went viral for his act of generosity and kindness towards prisoners with scholarship and a job.
Jeremiah’s random act of generosity was captured in a video as he was handing cash to prisoners in a van of the Nigeria Correctional Service (NCS) in Ajah, Lagos.
The video became an internet sensation and melted the hearts of people. He was later interviewed and as soon as he dropped the details of his account, gifts started pouring in.
To crown his rewards is the offer from billionaire, Obi Cubana who made this known as he went on an Instagram live with Popular Nigeria media personality, Daddy Freeze.
In addition to his scholarship, the socialite also included immediate employment for Jeremiah in any of his numerous companies in his business organizations once he is done with his undergraduate studies in the university.
“I am offering him a lifetime opportunity; he has to go to school I think that is his ambition. “I will see him through the university and if he wants to do Masters abroad, I will make sure he is comfortable while going to school because like I said earlier, that is the best we can do for him.” Cubana said.
The socialite added that, “He will do university, anything he wants, and then by God’s grace I know I will still be standing by the time he is done with school, he has a place in any of my organizations at the top level and if by God’s grace he finds a higher calling, you see there is nothing tied to this, I do not expect anything in return.
“I am not giving any conditions for this but if he chooses not to go back to school we can now hear what he wants to do and then we see him through.
The most important thing is to know that he has in me a mentor, he has in me a life guide in me. I will make it easy for him through God so I believe that God will give me health and strength.
The guy will go to any university of his choice in good condition not just to pay school fees. He has a heart of gold. This is the kind of people we need.
I pray that people will do eye service to get my attention, let them do this kind of thing, in doing that you don’t know when you get used to it the world becomes a better place.”
