It’s a nice thing when celebrities stand up and take on a kind act towards the people who watch them and idolize them and so it was with Ireti Doyle.
The Nollywood veteran took to her Instagram to spotlight her female uber driver whom she lauded for hustling so hard when others in her position might have gone on to do something less desirable.
Ireti Doyle revealed that she not only paid double the fare when she got to her destination but that she would do whatever she can to make the woman’s life easier.
Read her story below:
Yesterday I called for an uber, and this is who I got..IBUKUNOLUWA. I was intrigued by her so I spent the ride getting to know her and her back story. Ibukun is 24, very well spoken and a part time undergrad student. Her mother has passed, and she doesn’t have much of a relationship with her Dad. She attends Schl 3 days a week, and on the other days she’s working as an uber driver.
She bought her car on hire purchase…she hopes to pay it off by Nov after which the car becomes hers. She’s had to put up with jeers from her peers, but she’s determined not to let that keep her from attaining her goals. A Queen…I stan?
I honestly cannot remember the last time I was so deeply inspired..
See ehn at a point in everyone’s life “my mama no do for me” “my papa no give me” is a lame excuse. What are you doing for yourself?
Then, don’t buy into the lie; there are different methods to living this thing called life…It doesn’t have to be fast and furious… Know yourself no be curse…By the time she got me home I doubled the fare and will definitely contribute my widow’s mite towards making her life a little easier.
That’s how you attract helpers; not by begging, not by scamming, not by selling yourself cheap, but by being found, hands deep in the work of improving your own life.?
