Apart from blessing people with series of gifts ranging from fridges to power generating sets, on IG, the owner of Five Star Music, Emeka Okonkwo aka E-money, also decided to give back to the street. According to Linda Ikeji, to do this, he flashed back to sometime in 2015, when his brother, Kcee, was on the streets of Lagos hawking recharge cards as an MTN ambassador.
Kcee had met one Promise, a ‘shoe – rack’ hawker from Ebonyi state, who has been hawking for over 6 years and promised to help him. Today, the Five Star music crew, led by Kcee, went in search of Promise who hawks at ‘Ikeja Along’, Lagos. On getting there, Promise and his brother had just been picked up by officials of KAI (Kick Against Indiscipline) and transported to their office in Alausa, Ikeja.
The crew then went in search of him at the KAI office and after several hours of pleading, he was released into their custody after signing an undertaking that he will not hawk again. Promise has now been given a brand new Toyota Corolla car, courtesy of E-Money, as well as the sum of N300k to get a new apartment. Also his brother and friend, that hawk with him, also got cash gifts….. bt they rejected everything….
