Davido, the Afrobeats singer, has aborted his mission to help a physically challenged male hawker who disguised himself as a woman.


The hawker identified as Eniola started to gain attention after Brain Jotter, the skit maker, shared a video of their encounter.

Brain Jotter said during their conversation, he learned that the street hawker is also a makeup artist.

Moved by Eniola’s situation, he decided to help by transferring N400,000 to the hawker’s account.


Eniola revealed that she is a native of Osun state but relocated to Lagos to make ends meet.

Reacting to the video via X, Davido drew the attention of Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun — who happens to be his uncle — to Eniola. He also asked for her location.

Responding to Davido’s post, Adeleke said he has “directed my office” to get in touch with Eniola.


The governor said he would assist Eniola “in advancing her education or improving her makeup skills”.

Shortly after, a blogger claimed that the hawker is a man named Sultan who disguised himself as a woman to deceive people into giving him money.

“Nigerians fell for this scam and it is sad. According to the group of people that helped the said disabled lady before, na man, his name is Sultan, he disguises as a woman,” the blogger wrote.

Jotter also expressed his disappointment with the hawker.


Reacting to the discovery of Eniola’s real identity, Davido asked the Osun governor to “abort mission”.

“Excellency dem job us !! Dem say nah man ABORT MISSION,” he wrote on X.

Eniola recently revealed to TheCable Lifestyle why he disguised himself as a woman.
