Nigerian music genius, Michael Collins Ajereh, professionally known as Don Jazzy, recently displayed true champion qualities by offering a helping hand to Anthonia, a talented female footballer from Nigeria. Don Jazzy generously donated ₦6 million to cover the expenses of her much-needed knee surgery.
Anthonia, through heartfelt photos and words, shared her painful experience on social media, pouring out her emotions.
She also appealed to the kind-hearted people of Nigeria for financial assistance in raising the required ₦5-6 million for her crucial knee surgery.
On her social media page, she wrote in parts: “On November 23rd, 2022, during a friendly game with the FCT coaches in Area 3 pitch, Abuja, I was a Naija Ratels player.
“Twenty minutes into the game, I went in for a tackle and twisted my left knee. I was taken off the pitch on a stretcher, and immediately, my knee became swollen.
“A few days later, I started feeling severe pain in my knee. I did an X-ray, but no issue was seen. The doctor administered some medication, and I believed I’d recover as long as I rested my leg.
“I sent numerous messages to the club’s Chairman @FcRatels, but I received no response.
“In August 2023, I left Makurdi and had another X-ray at Nisa Premier Hospital, Abuja. The orthopedic doctor recommended an MRI scan.
“I’ve been in pain for the past year, to the point where I started using crutches, taking pain-relieving medication daily, and wearing a knee brace constantly. I can’t engage in training or walk long distances due to the injury.
“The estimated cost of the treatment and surgery is approximately ₦5-6 million. I would greatly appreciate any assistance and donations, regardless of the amount.”
With a heart full of compassion, Don Jazzy swiftly responded to her plea for help, taking on the role of a guardian angel.
He provided evidence of his ₦6 million transfer to her account, accompanied by a note that conveyed his well wishes for her speedy recovery.
