Life was bubbling and things were moving fine for a Nigerian man until his kidney collapsed and that marked the start of problems for him.
Fisayo Adeleke is a young promising Nigerian man whose aspiration and the journey has been distracted by his kidney problem.
He is from Nigerian singer Davido’s hometown
The young man who hails from Ede, same as singer Davido, has cried out to the musician for help after making frantic efforts to raise money for his treatment to no success.
A report made available to Nigerian news site Legit.ng stated that Fisayo’s ailment has gulped his finances and money he had saved up while he worked as a chemical engineer in the oil sector.
For many years now, Fisayo would travel a long distance by public transit to Babcock University Teaching Hospital where he has been receiving treatment for years.
He undergoes dialysis 2 to 3 times a week.

On efforts they have made at reaching the singer’s family, Fisayo said his people had contacted the Adeleke family of Ede through the Greenspring Development Foundation owned by them and headed by chairman Dr. Adedeji Adeleke (Davido’s father) but haven’t got any feedback.
Airport worker begs Davido after singer’s tip of KSh 10k got him sacked from work
TUKO.co.ke previously reported that an airport worker had begged Davido after the singer’s KSh 10,000 tip got him sacked from work.
In the video, the airport worker revealed that he ran into trouble with his employers after the father of three gifted him some money.
A few weeks ago, a video of the singer tipping the unnamed man the sum of KSh 10,000 went viral.
The video seemed to have gotten the attention of the airport authorities as they fired the man.
Netizens have been complaining about the culture of begging in many airports, calling the government to do something about it.
To curtail such an attitude, workers have been warned to desist from begging travellers for money.
