Osunleke Alaba, a creator of social media skits and a Ladoke Akintola University of Technology graduate in Agricultural Extension and Rural Development, received a N500,000 check from the school’s alumni organization.
Alaba gained notoriety a few days ago after he sobbed as he approached the university since he was unable to use the diploma he received from the institution years after graduating.
He claimed that his parents had taken out loans to pay for his education but were unable to support him in the long run, and he added that his behavior was not a social media gimmick.
The skitmaker said, “I returned the certificate because it had no impact on my existence. I asked for a refund of the fees paid in school so I could use it to build my talent and live a meaningful life.
“I am an entertainer and even won the MTN talent hunt award during my service year in 2016.
I have continued to struggle in life such that the opportunities I am getting is to do money rituals but I don’t want to do such. I want to be useful to Nigeria, my family, myself and to God.
“I am married with two kids; my dad is 90 years old but I continue to borrow money from him rather than give him. He told me that he took loans to fund my education and hasn’t refunded them and cannot continue to borrow money to give me.
“I ask for help in any form. I want to pursue my entertainment career. I don’t want my career wasted.”
Days later, Alaba revealed on Facebook that LAUTECH’s alumni had come to his rescue by presenting him with a cheque of N500,000.
“I hereby seize this medium to express my deep appreciation to the Global Body of LAUTECH Alumni as outstandingly led by the President, Hon. Onilede Solomon popularly known as LIMO, the Board of Trustees, and the Oyo State Chapter of the Association for their presentation of the #500,000 cheque to me today.
“May Almighty God continue to be with you and all members of the Association for their show of love and support. I thank you, once again,” he wrote
