On Sunday, March 15, an explosion hit Abule Ado, a local government area in Amuwo Odofin, in the state of Lagos. The explosion was widespread as it hit schools, homes and office complexes, leaving 17 dead and many injured.
Lagos state governor Babjide Sanwo-olu visited the site to assess the situation there and then pledged to create a 2 billion naira aid fund for the victims.
However, Falz criticized the Lagos state government’s inability to raise the funds, hence its decision to invite well-meaning Nigerians to donate to the cause.
A day after making the pledge, the governor revealed that N250 million was invested in the fund by disclosing bank details in which well-meaning donors will deposit the remaining N1.75 billion to the victims of the Abule Ado explosion.
But Nigerian musician Falz, who believes the state is financially dynamic enough to create the 2 billion naira, called it a joke.
Falz, leading to his social media, wrote: “What kind of joke is this? Who are you asking to donate?
