Beauty queen, actress, philanthropist, Ibinabo Fiberesima, celebrated her birthday last week in grand style.
The event, which had who is who in the movie and entertainment worlds, was held at Liligate Hotel in Lekki, Lagos.
Unlike other celebrity birthdays that are characterised by binge partying, Ibinabo decided to make her own different by changing the lives of deserving young Nigerians, as she gave out eight scholarships to eight Nigerians from across the country.
While presenting cheques to winners of the scheme, IB, as Ibinabo is simply called, congratulated and thanked them for allowing her to be a part of their lives.
“It is good to have children who you can give the best education, but when you look out there, you see thousands of children whose parents cannot afford to send them to school.
“I know assisting eight people will at least change their lives in some ways.”
This is not the first time Ibinabo would be assisting indigent children and youths, as she has been interested in children and even adopted some as her children.
Those who benefitted from her ‘Go To School’ scholarship scheme include Paul Prince Stephens from Akwa Ibom; Arinze Maxi Chukwu from Anambra; Odunaike Olamilekan from Lagos; Treasure Okwuke from Edo; Oluwafemi Usman and three other children from one family in Kogi State.
Celebrities who attended the event include Charles Granville, Aneke Twins, AY, Ricardo Agbor, Monalisa Chinda amongst many others .
