Singer Asake comes under fire for donating just N5m to ailing policewoman in viral ‘epp me, epp me’ video


Popular Afrobeats singer, Asake has been dragged online by Nigerians for sending only N5M to the ailing policewoman in the viral ‘epp me epp me’ video that he used in one of his songs.

The policewoman, known as Mrs Helen, went viral last year after she was ‘kidnapped’ by a motorist.

Her words “Help me Help me, e dey carry me go where I no know’ in the viral video had been used by Asake in his song, PBUY.

However, the policewoman was involved in an accident while in the line of duty and broke a leg.

According to the woman, she had been taken to three different hospitals and they had at the time demanded 1.5 million for treatment.

Asake whose attention was drawn to the incident, sent her 5 million naira, but a Nigerian has deemed it small.

One netizen identified as Dr. Penking opined that the singer had made loads of cash from that song, and it is unfair that he would send her such a paltry sum.

He wrote:

“Asake used this woman’s audio “Epp Me. Epp me. E dey carry me go where I no know” in his hit song PBUY without any settlement . That song made over 500 million in streams . This woman got into some health issues, Asake sent only 5 million after intense dragging sef. Remember that same Asake bought a house of 136 million just 2 months ago. Nigerians are not good people.”
