- It’s not every day one hears stories of musicians who do all they can to help the poor
- Even more surprising is hearing that the musician is ‘upcoming’
- That is the kind of musician Willie XO is proving to be
Willie XO is not your everyday music artist, he is refreshingly different. You wouldn't be mistaking if you confused the giant hunk for the latest boxing sensation, Anthony Joshua. His difference though is not just about the looks.
The 6 feet 6 inches giant was introduced to the scene by veteran hip-hop recording artist Illbliss responsible for launching the careers of Phyno, Chidinma and others.
Having received major financial backing from a Dutch company, he has been in Nigeria for some weeks working with hit makers like Krizbeats, Del'B, Suspect etc. He has also been visiting the poor in various hoods and is said to have given away millions.
He has since asked for suggestions on undeserved communities he should visit next and at the same time, he has also vowed to pay tuition fees for five university students. Anyone interested in receiving this aid should visit his Instagram page.
According to Willie XO, he made a pact with himself that whenever he makes it, he will always help the poor, give back to the community and he's definitely fulfilling that very promise.
