D’Banj gifts N2m to woman who said she’ll build house with $1 [Video]

Ace Nigerian singer, Dapo Oyebanjo popularly known as D’Banj has given a market woman N2 million after she went viral for stating what she would do with $1.

On-Air-Personality and content creator, Kasnaty, an OAP visited a marketplace to do a Vox pop wherein he asked traders what they would do if they were lucky to win 1 dollar lottery.

The market women who didn’t know the actual value of the dollar in naira gave outrageous responses on how they’d spend it. But a particular woman said that if she gets 1 dollar, she’d complete her building, raise her children and expand her business.

After Kasnaty posted the clip and it went viral, D’Banj took interest in her matter and asked for her to be found that he wants to meet and bless her with some cash. The artiste said he liked how she detailed her plans to spend the cash.

“Help me find this woman, I love how she wants to use her $1 WIN. I go like bless her. I wan to ‘Gbe’,” D’banj tweeted.

The elderly woman has now been found and connected with D’Banj who fulfilled his promise and handed her N2 million. The trader visited the Kokomaster at his residence in company of her son to receive her cash gift.

Emotions rented the air in another video which showed when he handed the woman the whopping sum of 1 million naira to support her business and other personal affairs.

Nigerian chef, Hilda Baci has revealed that it cost her a lot of money to put together her cook-a-thon for the purpose of clinching a Guinness World Record.

According to the restaurateur who achieved 100 hours cooking marathon said she spent over more than year on the execution of the event.

Hilda made this known while being interviewed on Channels Television, saying it took her over five years to conceptualize the event and a year and five months to decide if it would occur.

She said; “I have been overwhelmed with love in a very good way, I did not expect it to be this massive, but I am very grateful. It took us about six months to plan the actual event up to execution; it took a year and five months from when I decided this would happen, and the idea came to me five years ago”

When asked what it cost to organise the event, Hilda said: “Especially at that scale and size, it costs a lot of money; I cannot specifically give the figure”.

On Monday, 15th of May, 2023, Baci, a 27-year-old graduate cooked for up to 100 hours, beating the chef Indian Chef Lata Tondon’s cooking record of 87 hours, 45 minutes.

However, The Guinness World Record team is yet to officially announce Hilda as the new world record holder and the reason is because it will review all the evidence first.

GWR said; “We are aware of this amazing record attempt, we need to review all the evidence first before officially confirming a record”.

Baci commenced the four-day ‘cook-a-thon’ on Thursday, May 11 by 4pm at Amore Gardens, Lekki, Lagos State and concluded on Monday, May 15th by 8pm.
