While many people were fixated on celebrating the season of love with their partners, popular Nigerian OAP, Osi Suave, reiterated the true meaning of the Valentine's Day with his recent act of kindness.
After several encounter with a certain street kid who always asked for food, the media personality took it upon himself to ensure that these children experienced Valentine's Day in his own little way. He spent the lover's day feeding 40 of these kids who he revealed were between the ages of 6 and 10.
He wrote: "On my way home most days I use the Lekki Ikoyi link bridge and cut out to the express way using freedom way to avoid traffic. It was a regular routine but something changed a while back."
"There are kids that would hug my window and beg for alms. So I told this one I didn't have any spare change that day. He looked in my car as asked for the bowl of food I had on the passenger seat. Man I was so broken and I had to give him the food. It stayed with me for a while. Everyday as I would go home I'd buy food and give to this little boy. He knew when to approach my car and what time I'd normally pass by. As soon as the light turned green he will run after me so the others do not shorten his ration.
