A renowned gospel artist, Blessed Samuel Chimnyeremka Manuanwu, has cried out to Nigerians for help over what he called a threatening challenge.
Samuel is known for several gospel tracks, including Jesus Onye Mme Mme, Jesus Nmanu Anu, Favour Room, among others.
The Imo State born singer, in a video that has gone viral, said he was in dire need of the sum of N12 million in order to come out of the problem.
In the video, he was also heard saying “I have come to understand that sickness, problems, challenges of any kind don’t consider who you are before it comes to you.
“It is not easy for me to come on air to say this but because it has gotten to the neck.
“My people, I am in pain, I am in trouble and I need N12m to come out of this problem. I plead to faithful Nigerians to come to my aid.”
“Whatever you contribute as an individual will go a long way to make me come out of this problem. May you never see problem that is bigger than you.
“Whatever that you are contributing here, may it be a means of taking you to another level. Please, save a life. May God answer you when you are in need, please my people, please faithful Nigerians, save a life,” he concluded in the 2-minute video.
When contacted, Samuel confirmed the video.
He asked Imo State Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, others Southeast governors and good spirited Nigerians to come to his aide.
According to him, “I’m begging the Governor of my State, His Excellency Owelle Rochas Okorocha to come to my aide. He is one of those in so much love with my songs. In every event he attends, he always punctuates his speech with one of my tracks, ‘Onye bi na igwe, anyi abiaruola’.”
“I’m also pleading with the people’s governors of Abia, Anambra, Enugu and Ebonyi, as well as our Daddy, Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church and Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka to help me out. I will really cherish his fatherly assistance in any way.
