Nigerian billionaire businessman and oil tycoon Femi Otedola is unarguably one of Nigeria’s most charitable persons and has supported his daughter’s foundation for the children to the tune of N5 billion which is singlehandedly the highest amount donated to charity by a single individual in the country.
This declaration is coming as his daughter who is also a popular Disk Jockey in the country DJ Cuppy launches her save the children foundation and her father has supported her with a massive donation to that effect.
She wrote on her Instagram page “Best birthday Present! The #CuppyGoldGala was such a success! The Cuppy foundation has raised over 5.1 billion naira to help Nigerian children.”
The fundraiser for her foundation held at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel in Abuja and was attended by Nigerian politicians and businessmen including Nigerian richest man Aliko Dangote who also donated N100 million to the foundation.
This great gesture to the children in the North East who have been ravaged by the Boko Haram terrorist group has gone unnoticed with several commentators including the political activist Reno Omokri berating other billionaire businessmen from the North East such as Mohammed Indimi who comes from the same region but has done nothing to help the plight of the desolated people in that part of Nigeria.
This will not be the first time Femi Otedola is engaging in philanthropy after also helping former Super Eagles handler Christian Chukwu to offset the bills for a prostate cancer operation in the United States.
