A mom in need has appealed to well-meaning Nigerians and famous artist Davido to help save her kid, who has been diagnosed with HBSS.


Oluchi Anijiofor made the request on her Facebook page, noting that the youngster has difficulties sleeping in addition to running a temperature and having considerable physical ache.

HBSS is a severe form of sickle cell anemia that can only be treated with a cell transplant, which the family cannot afford, according to the child’s mother.

In an interview, Mrs. Anijiofor particularly requested that Davido assist monetarily and save the life of her son, David.

“My son David requires a bone marrow transplant to recover,” she explained. Given that neither I nor my spouse is financially capable of funding the transplant, I have come to ask your assistance, particularly that of superstar David Adeleke, in supporting this medical procedure.”

“My apologies go to everyone who might not be okay with this,” the woman stated on her Facebook page. Particularly to my husband for doing this without your permission. I can’t watch you become a ghost of yourself as a result of this, and I won’t sit and watch our son go through all of this anguish every day; our financial capacity can’t cover his transplant, honey, so instead of watching him helplessly, I’m doing this…”
