    I appreciate all those who have worked towards tackling and helping out with the fight to advance the sickle cell cause in Nigeria, especially the SCAF foundation, MissDeeefoundation and others.

    Miss Dee, Lovely Concept, I must confess, too much Food…Lool

    But, I have a Challenge, we have too many people discussing about SS Anemia on too many different platforms, Can we all for once harmonize all of our effort, to get a well Concrete Impact across Nigeria.

    I have nothing against your event though, I would have expected that this celebrity use there various social media platforms to drive engagement about the SS Anemia, Sensitization, encouragement, Motivation, we should even trend on twitter…. #June19 #StopThePain #SSAnemia #BreaktheCycle & all.

    But everyone wants to appear Philanthropic.
    I am a Survivor, so feel my pain….Tehehehehe.
    Together We Achieve More #TEAMWORK!!!
