Many celebs have reached out with token, monies and have donated food items to the poor and people are in dire need of the basic things in life during this Covid-19 lockdown period.
Some are also on social media doing giveaways with social media folks picking on other celebs to do the same.
One Twitter user has asked singer Waje to follow suit and does as her colleagues in the industry but the singer has simply declined that suggestion.
Just like Patoranking, Waje is of the belief that the real people who are suffering are the ones living in the slums and ghettos, people who cannot even afford data to come on social media.
She says her attention is now on Addacup, a body that has taken it upon itself to make such donations to the poor and needy and that is where she would make her donations.
The follower tweeted: “@OfficialWaje do giveaway.”
And Waje replied simply: “No”
She added: “Should I explain why? If you will allow me I will. See, this period is tough for everyone. Don’t be fooled by social media gimmicks but, the ones who have the hit are those in the slums, people who can’t even afford data. Nursing mothers with no food. Old people with no pension.
“So they are my focus, if I had more than enough, I’ll do a giveaway but I don’t so what I have I give to #addacup that’s distributing food and basics to people in Lagos, Abuja, Akwa, Benin. Everyone has to do something. So I’m sorry I can’t do a giveaway this season.”
Waje concluded that she is not afraid of her truth, advising fans not to waste their time dropping account details.
“So don’t waste your time and send Acct details cause I can’t afford it. Addacup has my attention for now. Stay safe. God bless. No shame in speaking my truth. Some artist is doing a giveaway, take advantage of their kindness and use it wisely.”
