Popular Nollywood actor, Williams Uchemba has taken to social media to reveal the true reason he has been catering for the less privileged in the country.

Following God's instructions
Uchemba disclosed that he was in California a few years ago when he got God's clear instruction to free people from poverty in Nigeria even though he acted like he didn't hear.

He continued by saying that he did not understand why he would leave the comfort and the beautiful life he had coupled with the little savings he had to enter the slums in Nigeria and help strangers he didn't know.
According to the actor who now has a foundation, he ignored the voice for weeks and even though he helped poor people on the streets of Los Angeles, he still felt guilty.
Uchemba headed back to Nigeria two months later and even though he didn't have billions to hand out, he felt sudden heavy compassion for the poor and he started emptying his account to help them.
The actor also used the opportunity to urge people to help others because they want to and feel their pain while looking up to God for replenishment.
Part of his post read:
"I hate to break this to you but majority of the time God’s plans looks nothing like what you have planned for yourself, Let me tell you this little story. Few years ago, I was laying in my bed in California when I got an instruction, very clear and sound instruction from God to go to Nigeria and free people from poverty, at first I acted like I didn’t hear because in my head God can’t tell me to leave the beautiful life he has given me and the little savings I have to enter the slums in Nigeria and help strangers I don’t even know."
