American/Nigerian rapper, Skepta, decided to pay it forward by building a playground in his father’s village at Ijebu Ode, Nigeria.
Skepta who shared photos of some uncompleted playgrounds on Instagram said he had intended on adding finishing touches before launching it, but his dad insisted that his mother would be the one cutting the ribbon before she had to fly back to London.
Skepta plans on adding more to playground, hoping that ulimately, kids from the vilage will be inspired to ‘get into activities and maybe find talents they never knew they had’.
Skepta wrote, “Me and my Dad been talking about making a place for the children to play in his village in Nigeria. He sent me these pics and my heart is smiling, I told him to wait for me to come and add the finishing touches but he wanted my Mum to open it before she flew to London tomorrow haha, sweet boy ting. Safe journey Mum. Love”
