Twitter shows Nigerians are outstanding people as #SupportDolapo raises medical school tuition within 3 days!


This is the sort of news I live for, that I breathe for. For every time social media gives us Kanye, insane tweets, the crazy world of YouTube user comments, and you’re just about to give up on civilisation and go live in a woodland area far, far away, a hashtag like #SupportDolapo comes up and your faith in humanity is restored.

Started on the 13th February by Enitan Okediji and championed by JJ. Omojuwa, #SupportDolapo is the cause of a young lady who desperately wants to be a medical student but ran out of funds. A GoFundMe page was opened for Dolapo Igboin, and by the sheer power of numbers and The Collective, the campaign gathered pace and very soon it snowballed into a full Twitter trend cause.

According to Enitan, this is a case of great karma and the universe doing that which is right:

Twitterati rallied around this young lady and the money just kept rolling in!

In a few short hours, this happened:

And then…the news we had all been waiting for!

JJ Omojuwa wrote a line in response to the outpouring of goodwill to this story and I couldn’t have said it better myself:

Congratulations, Dolapo, on hope renewed. But a bigger congratulations to my people: a little bit from a loving heart can indeed go a long way. Congratulations to everybody who donated.
