Recall that Winfrey visited Morehouse College to renew her scholarship donation to the school even as she was appreciated by the students for the contribution she has made in the past.

As she was leaving the school building, Olufemi and his friend ran to her with giddy excitement, hoping to say a few more words of appreciation to her and take pictures.

While they were posing for a group selfie with her, Winfrey made a very hilarious statement about Olu's phone's screen condition.

She said: "Yeah, that is me! That's me in your cracked phone"

Days after, Winfrey surprised the boy and got him a new phone with a lovely message:

"Dear Olufemi,

"We can't have you here viewing the world thru a cracked screen or a cracked cover. The new camera you gonna love for sure!"
