      what rubbish, so his life should come to an end because someone is sick? Why not give your mother for rituals and pay for ojb’s operation then?

    @Sandra and Yetunde, please, people have the right to spend their money however they want. Stop hitting on celebrities to donate. Have you two dropped your widow’s mite?

    @ Sandra and Yetunde It is obvious u guys r very narrow minded. Y hate on him for showing his fans little appreciation.

    June 28, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    The latest trend on BN!! Everything has to be narrowed down to hate!!! Issorai!

    @ Sandra and Yetunde? Who are you to tell him how he spends his money. Have you donated? and what makes you think he hasn’t? Until he goes live to announce it? I like the gesture @ Dr Sid cool PR and nice connection with your Fans. didn’t know about this but also glad to know I can buy tickets at a discount on

    I am tired of all this hate on people for spending their money. He does not need to come out publicly to say he has donated to OJB. Donations should actually be a private affair and not for publicity. Haba….he appreciates his fans, it is now a problem. You guy sshould take it easy on them celebrities, biko nu.

    Clever publicity stunt by Tripican. If you’re thinking what I’m thinking, you’d agree that Dr SID was a marketing ploy

    • OK

      Of course it was

    @Sandra and Yetunde, please do not ring that ridiculous banter going on at LIB over here. People like you piss me the hell off! First of all why must he donate any money? secondly, how do you know Dr Sid did not already donate? Have you ever heard of ANONYMOUS donations? not everyone wants it made known that they gave money. Now the man cannot appreciate his fans because self righteous people like you want to come and dictate how he should spend his money. Donate to OJB if you want and leave people alone!!! UGH!!!
