Nigerian celebrities have risen in defense to a little girl identified as Success, who was sent home on Wednesday, March 13, for her parent inability to pay her fees.

Following the spread of the video, Comedian, Ayo Makun a.k.a AY, has launched an appeal fund for the girl to return to school.
Another Instagram, Mr Jollof who became moved by the viral video called out on any Nigerian who knew her whereabouts, promising to grant Success scholarship up to university level.
He wrote: “Please who can locate this child for me? I will give her scholarship till she graduates from university. Please anyone with useful information should contact me, THANK YOU”.
According to Pulse.ng, AY had successfully reached the child in Delta State and advised Nigerians to help little kids around them that are in similar situations.
Other celebrities who have indicated willingness to help include Charles Okpaleke, Jim Ikye and others.
