Nigerian musician Small Doctor has debunked allegations that he and some other celebrities were given N2m each during an interview with The Punch.
The allegations came after the musician and other celebrities visited the State House during Ramadan.
It was alleged that the celebrities were given the N2m by President Buhari as thanks for coming gift.
Small Doctor further confirmed that he is not aware of any amount of money given to any of the celebrities who were at the dinner.
The musician said: “I am not aware that the President gave anyone N2m. I was only invited to Aso Rock during the Ramadan period, which I honoured. 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.”
He also expressed that the dinner and meeting the president was an honour for him due to the fact that he was once a bus conductor. He added that he worked so hard to get where he is.
“I have always worked hard and my hard work is paying off. I felt humbled and privileged meeting Mr. President. Looking at where I used to be, there has been a major turnaround in my life. Do you remember I was once a bus conductor?”
