Nigerian Music executive, Don Jazzy recently donated the sum of N1.5 million naira to enable 100 young Nigerians learn how to code.
The Mavins boss made the donation following an appeal by the Founder of Code Hub Africa, Chizom Echehieuka that he (Don Jazzy) should sponsor 100 youths for the programme which costs N15k for each person.
Chizom had tweeted;
“Dear @DONJAZZY Please would you like to sponsor 100 Nigerian youths to learn how to code at our online mentorship program (Code Hub Africa Tech). It’s 15k per person. Thank you.
Please tag Rihanna’s boyfriend if you want to be part of this sponsorship”
However, upon seeing the post, Don Jazzy swiftly sent N1.5 million into the Tech firm founder’s account.
“Ok boss. Just sent 1.5Million Naira to your Vbank account, ” he tweeted back in response.
He also asked Mr Chizom to select only serious minded Nigerian youths for the tech programme.
On his part, Chizom expressed gratitude and said the selected students would make Nigeria proud.
”Baba Don Jazzy, God bless you. The Mentees go make Nigeria proud. History will not forget you baba,” he wrote in reply.
Don Jazzy then shared some evidence to prove that the payment has been done.
