19The popular comic act and musician in the Niger Delta region, Idowu Moye, a.k.a Maleke has raised over N6 million for a Benin artist, Esohe Osagiede who is suffering from a kidney ailment. Esohe has been suffering the problem for some time now but unfortunately for the family, they were unable to raise the N8 million required by an Indian hospital for the treatment until Maleke got to know about the patient’s predicament.

However, Maleke who originally organised the occasion which was supposed to be the launch of his new album, having invited Nigerian Musicians such as Tuface Idibia, Abdulkarim and others, turned the event to a fund raising for the ailing Esohe and totally ignore to benefit anything for his album launch.

He said, “I know I spent millions of naira to organise the occasion which was originally planned for the launch of my new album but luckily for us, all my friends that came made donations and at least we were able to raise N6 million.

We wish a lot of Nigeria could have this kind of mindset, the society would have been a better place for all to live in.
