Nigerian internet sensation, Success Adegor’s mother, Vera Adegor has spoken up after she was tagged an ingrate by Nigerian comedian, MC Jollof.
The name calling started after a recent video of Success Adegor surfaced where she claimed that all the promises and pledges made to her were never fulfilled. Success refuted reports that her her father is now a rich man, by stating that he still rides okada (motorbike).
Reacting to the claim, MC Jollof slammed Success and her parents, tagging them as ingrates, saying they got nothing less than N1million through donations. However, in new reports by The Cable, Success’ mother, Vera Adegor explained some promises were fulfilled, but MC Jollof’s claim of ingratitude on her family’s part isn’t true.
“MC Jollof came when he heard of the incident and paid for the second term to school success in a private institution. As of that time, the government had yet to come into the matter”.
“Government said they couldn’t allow Success to leave at the time until the renovation project on it [as it was dilapidated] was complete, for the sake of those who would also benefit from it.
“I called Mr. Jollof on the development, expecting he would retrieve his money since he paid into the school’s account not to me directly. I neither reached out to the school nor took the money.
“I’m not saying he didn’t do well, I thank him. But claiming I’m an ungrateful human being is not true. I told Charles Okpaleke, because of whom the government later give her a scholarship from four to six.
“It was when the commissioner came to check the school and didn’t see Success they remembered they promised her scholarship. They called to ask what happened and I told them she wasn’t given.
“…and that someone else paid for her four to six. So the government said they didn’t want her to go to a private school until she finishes there. So they also gave her a scholarship from four to six.”
Speaking further, she cleared the air about comedian AY, who has received heavy criticism on the heels of her daughter’s ‘fake promise’ claim. Vera explained that the comedian did his best in taking up the issue.
On the promise made to Success’ father, Vera disclosed that the Local Government Chairman had promised in the presence of pressmen that he would employ him at the secretariat but later said there was no job when paid a visit.
She said the chairman had offered to work out a commercial tricycle on a lease, despite having their own commercial bike, an offer which she said they had turned down due to the financial risk.
“I thank both those who made good on their promises and those who didn’t. To those who did, I apologize. She’s a child and wasn’t referring to those who helped her,” Vera told The Cable
“She addressed those she took note of. One that came with the media was Mr. Honourable Kelvin. In her presence, he promised to pack (relocate) us then. The next we called, he refused to answer.
“Another one that occurred was when she asked the chairman to give her dad a job. He agreed to do so but, at the end of the day, didn’t comply. Another news also circulated that she was given a visa.
“There are many others that I can’t immediately recall. She wasn’t begging for another donation. Only that she’s a child that always speaks her mind. She was just trying to address her concerns.
“I am sincerely grateful to those who fulfilled their pledges, like Mr. Charles Opaleke, who paid for primary four to six in Our Saviour School. AY Makun also did his best, and so many others.”
