Owner of Ovation Magazine, Mr Dele Momodu was in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo state recently and shared a photo(above) of himself and ‘his dear friend’ of 20 years, Mr Olushola Adu, a newspaper vendor. Mr Momodu sounded really happy to share the photo which seemed like a harmless one but probably didn’t expect what came net. The media mogul got a lot of bashing from some Nigerians on social media, who were of the opinion, that Momodu isn’t a good friend to the old man.
Some of them queried why Mr Adu should still sell newspapers, when he has a good friend such as Mr Momodu. See what he shared below;

Give my grandPa hundred of clothes he won’t wear more than 3 for the year..Give him all the money in Central Bank he won’t spend more than 50k for the year…Tell him to stop going to farm and you just murdered a soul..They just love what they do and money means nothing to them..

I think you wld be judgemental if you go this route.
Can a man meet the wants of EVERY INDIVIDUAL that crosses his path just bc he is perceived to be rich?
If Délè didn’t post this, wld you have had anything to say? Have you ever wondered why there are social clubs?
