With the current flood devastation in Markurdi, Benue State, Nigerian Singer, Sean Tizzle has offered to help with some donations, but with a condition attached.
The singer took to Twitter to announce this, saying he will donate 10 Naira for every retweet he gets.
He tweeted, “With the current situation in Benue, I am pledging 10N for every RT this gets! Please forward this so we can help out those in need!”
Following his tweets, some fans blasted him for trying to help with a condition attached, saying he is trying to use some other people’s tragedy to gain cheap publicity.
Some of the tweets read,
“10naira for every RT? good to ve thought to help but this is a PR failure considering u don’t ve to make noise if u wanna help anyone”
