Where is the mother? Hilarious reactions as man is seen backing his baby and riding a motorcycle in video
A young Nigerian lady had pity on a young boy whose only source of survival was his frail and old grandma as his mother is mentally unstable.
The young lady sourced funds on his behalf and paid his school fees. To make sure he and his family members are well-fed, she also bought many food items.
3. Adopted poor boy
The same Tunde Onakoya shared a photo of a boy he adopted almost a year ago. The kind man revealed that he has enrolled him in school.
After doing so, he sent a note to his teachers to tell them how very special the child is to him. The boy's transformation photo amazed people online.
4. Israel Goodnews Balogun
