Everyone is Talking About Alexx Ekubo’s Response to Student Who Asked for Help

Yesterday, Alexx Ekubo published the letter he received from a Nigerian student who asked him for financial help.

From the letter, the student has just gained admission into an Australian university, and now is asking for help to foot the tuition and miscellaneous expenses, all of which amount to over N7.5 Million.

And Ekubo had a pithy response for the young student.

“See this bros is asking small me to sponsor him to study “in the abroad” a whooooooole Australia, kai bros u get mind, you no even talk Unilag or Lasu or even our backyard Cotonou,” he wrote, adding, “There is even no direct flight to Australia from Nigeria, & you’re asking me to raise 7.5 MILLION NAIRA.”

He continued, “Dear Nigerians pls if you are begging for help pls beg with conscience & fear of God, both my younger ones are studying in Nigeria here, me that studied in UniCal i’m not mad, & i did not die.”
