The Abia-native made this known on Thursday when he shared a picture of himself and the 18-year-old, whom he says is determined to study Economics at the university, on Instagram.

“He is 18 years of age, has finished secondary school (with good grades) and would love to study Economics in the University but can’t further his education because he doesn’t have a sponsor to put him through school.

On May 23, Uchemba revealed that he had bought a house for a young girl and her family who had been living in a slum for 13 years.
