Disabled Entrepreneur Acknowledges Donations Ahead Of Davido’s Selection Tweet

Following his pitch under a tweet published by popular Nigerian musician, Davido, a physically challenged entrepreneur, Adebisi Michael, has disclosed that he has received assistance from Nigerians in support of his business.

In an exclusive interview with this reporter, the owner of a football viewing centre revealed that few Nigerians have given him outright support, while others await the outcome of Davido’s decisions.

He said: “Davido did not show up but few people have sent the token they could afford and also many people have promised me with the clause of ‘if Davido didn’t pick you’ So you know, I can’t ask them if Davido hasn’t said anything about the giveaway.”

The Ilesa-born graduate of Industrial Chemistry from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife revealed that managing a faulty generator and an unconducive environment are some of the challenges he battles as an entrepreneur.

“I don’t have a standby generator, which could develop faults while watching a football match. The shop I’m using does not have maximum security which forces me to take all my properties back home every day.”

“It’s been tough because I always [had] my dad by my side who helped me to transport the TV and sorts. Unfortunately, I lost him not long ago but my siblings have been helping with it now,” he said.


Davido’s Tweet

Popular musician, Davido, announced his intention to give out 20 million Naira to 20 persons as aid for their business ideas via his official Twitter handle.

Since his announcement went viral, netizens have shared their ideas in the replies to his tweet which has generated more than 26 thousand retweets.

Michael, who is wheelchair-bound, shared his challenges and request for financial support in a tweet that has since generated sympathy and contributions from well-meaning Nigerians.

He tweeted: “I started a football viewing centre two months ago and all I could afford was a TV, a stabilizer and a small generator.” 

“I can’t show more than a match at a time and also battling with a faulty generator. I would love to have two more televisions, a UPS, a fan and a standby generator.”

As of the time of filing this report, Davido is yet to announce the selection despite announcing he will on Friday the 18th of March.
