Speaking during an interview with a radio station, Nigeria Info’s 99.3 FM Umenka said whenthe news of the singer’s failing health broke, Olamide reached out to him on the phone and said;
Bros, sorry oh, I wan support Baba, don’t discuss this with anybody and he said I must not mention this.
Olamide is the only person that supported,” Umenka said even though other celebs reached out, he pleaded with them to hold because according to him, they were being careful about the sources of those donations towards Majek’s speedy recovery. “I told them to calm down and wait for Majek to come back. I decided to stop some of them because when money comes in, so many controversies arise, people, you don’t know from any corner start raising some dirty voices,” he added.
Umenka Uzoma explained that the matter is now private though as Femi Otedola has opted to foot all the bills of the music icon however, Nigerians have taken to comapre Olamide with his colleagues in the entertainment industry and it appears he just might have more fans following the recent announcement
