Nigerian music star, Bankole Wellington also known as Banky W has joined other well-meaning citizens to feed the poor in some parts of Lagos.
Since the lockdown order issued by the government, several celebrities have in one way or the other helped the less privileged with money and food items.
The music star turned politician took to his Twitter page on Thursday, April 16, 2020, where he shared photos from the event.
“Today was a great day… we fed 650 of the less fortunate people in our Lekki/Oniru/Maruwa community.
“Thank you to all the residents who donated their money, and volunteered their time. We will do this every lockdown day by God’s grace #LekkiFoodBank #EachOneReachOne,” he captioned the photos.

Banky W joins the list of celebrities like Runtown and Peruzzi who have at one point or the other given out money and food materials to the less privileged to cushion the effects of the lockdown due to coronavirus.
Last month, Runtown shared 10 million Naira to individuals and his fans alike. Though many thought he was joking, credit alert screenshots surfaced and showed that the beneficiaries were gifted 20 thousand naira each.
Runtown shared thus;
“HOPE EVERYONE IS STAYING SAFE. TIMES ARE EXTREMELY TOUGH AND I AM CERTAIN THERE ARE PEOPLE WITH NO MONEY TO STOCK UP ON SURVIVAL ESSENTIALS. WILL BE GIVING OUT 10 MILLION NAIRA TO THIS CAUSE. KINDLY DROP YOUR ACCOUNT DETAILS.
NOTE: OBVIOUSLY 10 MILLION NAIRA WOULD NOT GO ROUND, SO IF YOU HAVE OTHER MEANS TO SUSTAIN YOURSELF, RESPECTFULLY DON’T SEND IN YOUR ACCOUNT. PLEASE AND PLEASE ONLY IF YOU LACK, THESE THINGS ARE SPIRITUAL YOU KNOW
In the same stead, some well-meaning Nigerians and celebrities have offered in to help in different capacities. The likes of Toyin Abraham have gone to share bags of rice, hand sanitizers, and cooking items.
