A Nigerian woman and CEO of Bookings Africa, Fade Ogunro has announced that the young boy who recently went viral for dancing in the rain will be getting full scholarship all through his university.
In the video that has been watched over 14 million times, the boy could be seen making amazing lines in the rain on a very wet floor.
Here is Mrs Fade Ogunro’s previous comment on the video;
As a former ballerina I’m jealous of his beautiful lines, his toe points and his effortless gracefulness. @leapofdanceacademy I want to pay for his entire formal education anywhere in the world until he graduates from Uni. https://t.co/lqK76UFrAt— Fadé Ogunro (@FadeOgunro) July 7, 2020
BBC reports that he is one of the 24 students at the Leap of Dance Academy in Lagos state, an academy founded in 2017.
However, Mrs Fade Ogunro has now announced the boy’s full scholarship after sharing a photo of him smiling in a tweet.
Awwww my heart.— Fadé Ogunro (@FadeOgunro) July 8, 2020
Just received a video call from the 2 ballet students @LeapOfDanceAca1 that I’ll be sponsoring their education until they graduate from Uni.
The boy smiling is the amazing kid that went viral.
They made me cry with joy. Bless you both; your dreams will manifest. pic.twitter.com/dlfhNt1NSK
She said that their smiles give her great joy as she prayed that they will fulfil their life’s dream.
However, as today is the Nigerian scholar and Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka’s 86th birthday, in this article is a throwback video of how Kongi was arrested back then in 1965 and how he appeared before a court.
