I can't help but think this is all a stunt to get into the news pages by 5 Star Music boss E Money.So TY Bello makes a star of Olajumoke the bread seller,and they want a piece of the limelight as well.I could be wrong ,but i'm sorry,it looks like that to me.Another thing i don't understand is,why give a car to a street hawker? Why not sit down with him,ask him what business he is comfortable going into or has a flair for and set him up?
That car gift just looks like a total headline grabber to me.It makes no sense at all..Is a car
the first priority for a street hawker?
Anyway,i am sure the hawker is not complaining about the gift,good luck to him and i hope this is a start of a good and successful life for him.Meanwhile,here is how 5 Star team explains there generous gesture towards the shoe rack hawker.
Five star music president Emeka Okonkwo popularly known as 'EMoney' is a year older today and to celebrate it, he decided to give back to the street.
To do this, he flashed back to sometime last year when the label's front line act Kcee was on the street of Lagos hawking recharge cards. Kcee had met Promise, a 'shoe - rack' hawker from Ebonyi state who has been hawking for over 6 years and promised to help him.
Kcee and the crew went in search of him at the KAI office and after several hours of pleading, he was released into their custody after signing an undertaking that he will not hawk again.
Promise has just been given a brand new Toyota Corolla car courtesy of E-Money as well as the sum of #300,000 to get a new apartment. Also his brother and friend that Hawks with him also got a cash gift from the generous EMONEY.
We reached out to Kcee to comment on this and he simply said, 'If you follow the Five Star music family you'll know this is what we do, it's my brother's birthday and he decided to give back to the street and we are grateful to God for his mercies and grace upon us.
