A physically challenged man identified as Michael Showunmi has wowed people on social media after paying the school fees of three siblings whose parents had financial challenges.

Making the disclosure through his foundation on LinkedIn, Showunmi said the siblings are identified as Taiwo, Kehinde and Memunat Oshokoya.

The statement read:

"While we moved around doing our survey in helping 100 children back to school, I was led to a school. After my discussion with the principal, I met 3 siblings (Taiwo, Kehinde and Memunat Oshokoya) who haven’t paid their school fees.
"They shared with me how their Mum was diagnosed with cancer and how things have been very difficult. Their father lost his job as well."

The kids' father was surprised

According to Showunmi, the school principal called the kids' dad on phone and he rushed down to the school thinking that his children did something bad.

He was, however, surprised when he was told that Raising Star Africa, a nonprofit organisation, was willing to pay the children's school fees.

In Showunmi's words:

"He went dumbfounded, shedding tears for so long. I told the eldest to pat him. The boy was so happy he never stopped prostrating. I advised them to pay the kindness forward.

Away from that, it was previously reported that a man who was simply identified as Nana has been found to have over 200 children with his 43 wives in the Upper East Region of Ghana.

Although the man himself was not present, his spokesperson indicated that the estimated number of wives and kids was below the real figure.
