Nigerian artiste, Temitope Adekunle, popularly known as Small
Doctor, has debunked claims that he was given N2 million by
President Muhammadu Buhari.
A former Director of New Media for the Peoples Democratic Party,
PDP, Deji Adeyanju, had claimed that Buhari gave some entertainers
N2million each during a visit to Aso Rock in Abuja.
Adeyanju had written on Twitter, “So, some youths went to Aso Rock
yesterday to see Buhari and
collected ‘thanks for coming’, N2m each. Very soon, they will start
telling us why it is good for Buhari to continue …”
However, debunking the claim, Small Doctor said he didn’t collect
such money from the President and he didn’t think any other
entertainer did also.
He said, “I am not aware that the President gave anyone N2m. I was
only invited to Aso Rock during the Ramadan period, which I
“Have you asked Sound Sultan or Kunle Afolayan and they said
Buhari gave us N2m each. Well, I don’t know if they gave anyone
but I didn’t collect such money.”
The music star further stated that it was like a dream come true for
him to dine with the number one citizen of Nigeria.
