One of the reasons why Nigerians love Don Jazzy is because of his charitable acts.
Don Jazzy donated N500k towards the education of a 5-year-old boy who went viral on Instagram. Earlier this week, Nollywood actress, Funmi Awelewa, found little Taju on Instagram and shared the viral video. In the video, Taju adorably answered questions until the speaker asked him the name of his school. He playfully said he doesn’t go to school and this touched the hearts of many Nigerians including celebrities.
Upon seeing this video Don Jazzy promised to donate N500, 000 towards Taju’s education. Comedia AY shared this news in a screenshot of their chat on Instagram.
@donjazzy just reached out to me with 500k waiting for little Taju to go to school. We are still waiting to get proper information concerning meeting with him and his parents in Ibadan. Many thanks to @sotayogaga @funmiawelewa @adeniyijohnson who shared the video to our notice. I am so sure with the involvement of @moabudu @falzthebahdguy @iamsmade @_kehindebankole @iambimbothomas and other well meaning Nigerians we shall make this happen to many other Tajus out there. God bless you all. #tajugoestoschool
Thankfully, the actress found him in Ibadan after a tedious search. She also shared a picture with Taju and his family on Instagram:
After so much stress and trials, we finally found him.

In awesome news, other celebrities including Mo Abudu, Falz, Bimbo Thomas and others have pledged to contribute towards Taju’s education.
It’s great to see Nigerian celebrities give back to their communities – and more importantly, this further shows how powerful social media can be.
