One of Nigeria’s fastest rising young music acts Oxlade has sent a sweet shout out to Funmi Iyanda for helping out with his primary and secondary school education.
The singer took to his Instagram page to reveal that Funmi Iyanda’s foundation gave him a scholarship to complete his primary and secondary education, thereby taking the weight off his grandmother. He also shared an old video of himself and other kids, singing with 2Baba in the studio.
He wrote: She might not even recognize me anymore … She might not remember helping a kid … Myself and my grandma never got the chance to say thank you enough … @funmiiyanda just know that kid you gave sound education is out here doing what he knows how to do best”
But it appears Oxlade’s face is still fresh in Funmi Iyanda’s mind because she posted a reply on her IG stories saying she for 16 years she has never forgotten any of the children’s face.
