“Wizkid promising to gift children a N100m for Christmas is a m!splaced priority, since he’s yet to fulfil his old pledge of building schools across Africa; If he wishes to celebrate with kids this festive season that’s OK, but nät with a N100m. That money should be channeled into a long-term project, like building a free school to give education to poor children. No offense.”
