Some succour came the way of the family of deceased highlife musician, Fatai Olayiwola Olagunju, when the management of Daily-Need Industries Limited donated N500,000 for his children’s education.
The artiste popularly called Rolling Dollars, who died at the age of 86 on June 12, 2013, was an ambassador to the makers of De-Deon’s Syrup.
In a statement, the company’s management notes that the gesture is a furtherance of the robust relationship between the late musician and it as he was Daily Needs’ brand ambassador for five years.
“To us at Daily Needs, we are ever concerned about family healthcare, children’s future and education. This is what informed the management’s decision to donate the N500,000 cash to support the scholarship of the bereaved younger children of the late Fatai Rolling Dollar. It is our belief that this will help in supporting the immediate educational needs of the children,” says the company’s Marketing Manager, Sola Adeyi.
A widow of the late artiste, Mrs. Zaynab Olagunju, said to have received the donation on behalf of the children, is also said to have prayed for the success for the staff and management of the organisation.
“She promised that the donation would go a long way in settling the children’s immediate education expenses,”.
