Veteran Nigerian comedian, Julius Agwu has just donated $35,000 to seriously ill singer, Alariwo.
Alariwo recently admitted that he’s ill after he granted an interview to Punch revealing that he has been diagnosed with a disease known as Varicocele, an enlargement of veins inside the scrotum.
To undergo a surgery to take care of the ailment, the Crossover singer needs $130,000 for surgery abroad, an amount he’s been trying to raise.
“Julius is the only entertainer that has volunteered to donate the sum of $35,000 to my cause. I was shocked when he called to say he would give me the money. Now what I should be looking for is the balance. I want to thank him for this wonderful gesture”Alariwo said.
He continued “A lot of people were kind enough to provide support during the crisis. I am talking about people like Ayo Animashaun, Otunba Sesan Rufai and many others.”
Alariwo however still needs to raise some funds for his planned medical trip abroad to complete the total of $130,000 for his own treatment and also balance up what is left of his wife’s bills, who has also been ill with acute pulmonary embolism.
