He recently explained the focus of his philanthropy gesture: “As a public figure, I receive thousands of messages daily. I do a lot of giveaways on Instagram and also privately respond to people who reach out to me for help. Still, I can hardly reply to everyone. So, very soon I will be unveiling a platform where the needy will be answered. I am focused on providing empowerment for young people, anything that will give young people leverages in life,” he said.
Speaking further, Oil Money added, “Philanthropy is truly complex, but I am aware that people face difficult choices and obstacles along the way, so I try to lend a hand and assist them to scale those hurdles of life and give impetus to their dreams.”
