Obi Cubana Takes Hawker Off The Streets; Grants Him Scholarship, N100k Monthly
Ekuma Jeremiah, the Lagos hawker caught in a viral video giving out money to inmates in a Correctional Service van in Ajah, has received a letter of scholarship from businessman and socialite Obi Cubana.
Cubana, on his Instagram page, disclosed that one Mr & Mrs Afuah, based in Canada, has placed Jeremiah on a N100,000 monthly salary till he finishes his education.
Jeremiah was caught on camera in the Ajah area of Lagos last week giving money to inmates being transported to prison in a Nigerian Correctional Service van.
In the seven-second video, the hawker is seen carrying a crate of bottled water on his head while giving out some of the money he had made.
His gesture earned a widespread commendation from many Nigerians.
They applauded him for his love and generosity.
Obi Cubana on his Instagram page on Saturday said: “And God has remembered Jerry!! @jerryluck_ God used Rocky @rockyemmyphotography to make that video! And God used @daddyfreeze to connect me and Jerry!
“He has collected his letter of scholarship from Cubana Group! Thank God for His uncommon Grace! Mr & Mrs Afuah @iam_hymans who are based in Canada, we ran into ourselves last night at Cubana Lagos, and he introduced himself and said he wanted to reach out to Jerry.
“We all met this afternoon here in lagos. He has promised Jerry (and started paying immediately) a salary of 100k monthly from today till he is done with school!
“God has really remembered Jerry! Do Good, be nice, be generous! God will definitely remember you someday.”
