Iyanya Onoyom Mbuk, better known by his stage as Iyanya, has opened out about his meeting with a fan he met during Davido’s show.
Iyanya tweeted about a woman who drew his attention while he was playing at the TBS event. The woman was identified and connected with the singer in less than 24 hours.
However, when it was revealed that she had gone to the concert with her boyfriend, there were conflicting reactions to the news. Iyanya has now released an official statement on what transpired following their meeting on Twitter.
Iyanya learned that Florence had been struggling with despair due to a close family member’s cancer. Iyanya sent his staff to Lagos to organize Florence’s lodging, clothing, eyeglasses, and hair in an effort to brighten her day.
They also took her on a cruise to make her feel special and gave her an iPhone and an LV fragrance.
He said in parts, “You all remember how it started two Sundays ago when I sighted an amazing girl at Davido’s Timeless concert. She was eyeing me throughout my performance; I couldn’t forget her beautiful smile, and I tweeted about it.
“Luckily, Florence reached out; I tweeted her picture, and I asked my team to reach out to her. While her conversation went on with the team, we found out she has been depressed and only came for the Davido concert as a way to make herself happy. My team asked why she was depressed, and she told us one of her close relatives had been battling cancer. When I was informed, I felt like it would be nice to give her a treat in Lagos.
“I had my team contact her and make plans for her to come to Lagos so I could help put a smile on her face. Life is too short not to spread kindness. NB: I only met Florence for the first time on the boat, and my team dropped her off at her hotel. I didn’t bring her here for any other agenda but to make sure she was happy after all she’d been through. Thank you all, and keep supporting the movement.”
Iyanya clarified that he only brought Florence to Lagos to ensure she was content after everything she had gone through.
