Media personality and Vlogger, Toke Makinwa has announced she will be giving out 3 million Naira to four individuals with good business ideas as a way to promote creativity amongst Nigerian youths.
She made this announcement through a post published on her Instagram page.
According to her, it is her own little way of saying thank you as well as a call to action to get our minds thinking right.
“This project is very close to my heart thank you, Jesus, for the vision. Sooooo I’m sure a lot of you have wondered what #OnBecomingEmpowered is all about, go to my YouTube page (bio in my link) and watch this week’s Vlog.
I am giving out 3 million Naira to 4 people. It is my own little way of saying thank you, it is also a call to action to get our minds thinking right. #Imusthavemyown because life can happen at any time and I have seen things change overnight, from losing my parents at the age of 8 to going thru the most heartbreaking divorce at 30!
I keep thinking what if? What if I didn’t have a job, a dream, purpose…etc. We all must be prepared. It breaks my heart to see people on social media daily in need and I can’t reach everyone.
I feel a lot of people feel stuck and in order to become some more, we must empower our minds. It’s not about the money, it’s about impacting lives and this year we will start with business ideas, next, it’ll be education.
I truly want those who genuinely need the money to win the grant so do a one min video with your ideas and make it creative. Have fun with it as it’s going to be a fun process so get your videos up and tag @onbecomingbytokemakinwa, the best videos will be uploaded there and we can all choose together who makes it to the next round. More info will be released as we go along!”
