Avijeet Das said, “The money won’t last, the fame won’t last. But how you toughen up other people’s lives will always be left behind.
One of the things humans struggle with is giving to others without something at stake for them. It is one more world for some and much less for those who are the crucified souls of the earth; the least privileged.
Therefore, it will not be far from the truth to say that those who give to charity have hearts of gold, but the very few people who take aid to the poor to extraordinary levels, like Nigerian comedian Wemimo Iyiola Samson, who is affectionately called ‘Linomrlion’, are angels.
Just as it’s nearly impossible for some people to compromise their routines, so too is Turkey-based comedian Linomrlion not reaching out the hand of love and helping the downtrodden in society. Far from home in the comfort of the window between Asia and Europe, yet his heart races after well-being.
Linomrlion is one of the most popular social media comedians in Nigeria today, creating Naija flavored content from his place of residence and in some cases taking trips to Nigeria for the entertainment of his local followers and global.
However, Linomrlion’s love for the poor may not be unrelated to the childhood he had when he lost his father at the age of 10 and life took another senses.
“I was born into a religious family in Oshodi, Lagos but my pastor father unfortunately passed away when I was only 10 years old and as a result my mother had to work very hard to raise me and my children. three other siblings,” Linomrlion said.
Speaking further, Linomrlion said,
“I had to scramble in life, educated at Augflow Primary School, Oshodi, and Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta. I topped it off with an MBA from Aydin University in ‘Istanbul, Turkey’.
During a recent Q&A, the charity comedian revealed his plans to start an organization with the aim of helping those in need.
Linomrlion refused to disclose which charities he has supported, saying it would ‘violate’ his ‘person principle’.
“To mention one would violate my personal principle regarding the act of giving. But I’m working on starting an organization that will see to the welfare of the less privileged at home. When it’s ready to take off, it can be made public,” Linomrlion said.
