They say tiny drops of water makes a mighty ocean. The story of 5-year-old Taju started as a comic relief and now, he’s found his way to getting the care and empowerment him and every Nigerian child deserves.
Taju who can be said to possess a strong personality appeared to many as a hilarious kid when a video of him unable to state his age clearly in English went viral.
In the one minute video, Taju was asked what his name and age was, but the lad only knew how to pronounce his name and nothing more- he also could not mention the name of his school because he is not even in school.
Elamefa Dayo, who is a comedian, posted the video for the fun of it and in a few minutes, he got the internet asking questions, who is Taju? Where can we find him? How can we send Taju to school?
Taju immediately got celebrities like Don Jazzy, Mo Abudu andFalzthebahdguy interested in his case as they began pledging to donate to his cause. Don Jazzy even promised the young lad the sum of five hundred thousand naira
Taju has since been brought to Lagos by Yoruba actress, Funmi Awelewa who took it upon herself to find him and bring him to town.
