It’s quite unfortunate to bring you this sad news, this early Friday Morning… But Utibe, the young boy who got Davido’s attention after singing “IF” has lost his mom.
Utibe went viral after several media houses posted videos of him singing Davido’s IF, and then a user, Shamrock80 who was moved by this, reached out to the young lad, bought him some foodstuffs, and tried to set him up in a school.
Shamrock met with Utibe and Utibe’s Mum, and he revealed that she suffers from paralysis… Davido got himself involved, and promised to sponsor Utibe for Life..
Then, Davido revealed he’s building a house for the young lad… But it’s so unfortunate his mum won’t see him succeed. She died this morning.
Shamrock who is spearheading everything about the welfare of Utibe and His Mum, broke the news, he wrote;
Rest in peace UTIBES MUM.. U struggled to live, u where always telling me u want to start business I told u to recover first, now I got a call u are gone so soon, if life was to be sold I will buy some more years for u…I tried to battle with ur health,but my best wasn’t good enough, Who will look after utibe and the two younger sisters.. Who will live in the huz we are building for u… I just wish u slept in that huz even for a second.. My heart is heavy. But GOD knows best. Rip ma’am.
Sad one… and there has been some progress about the house Davido is building! Sighs! Some photos below;
