Some weeks back, some youths in the entertainment industry visited President Buhari at Aso Rock. After the picture from the vent went viral, rumours started going round that the youths who visited the president were given N2million each as ‘thanks for coming’.
However, while speaking with Sunday Scoop, Temitope Adekunle, aka Small Doctor, said he didn’t collect such money from the President and he didn’t think any other entertainer did also.
He said, “I am not aware that the President gave anyone N2m. I was only invited to Aso Rock during the Ramadan period, which I honoured. Have you asked Sound Sultan or Kunle Afolayan and they said Buhari gave us N2m each. Well, I don’t know if they gave anyone but I didn’t collect such money.”
According to him, it was like a dream come true for him to dine with the number one citizen of Nigeria. He added, “I have always worked hard and my hard work is paying off. I felt humbled and privileged meeting Mr. President. Looking at where I used to be, there has been a major turnaround in my life. Do you remember I was once a bus conductor?”
