“What you did for me is bigger than the latest Benz” – Bukunmi Oluwasina moved to tears by fans’ birthday celebrations
Bukunmi Oluwashina, a Nollywood actress who celebrated her 33rd Birthday recently, expressed her gratitude for the love and support that she received from her fans.
The mother of one shared her experience on social media, recounting how her fans celebrated her new age in Nigeria and the United Kingdom.
Bukunmi, in a post of appreciation, lamented that her love for online giveaways was misinterpreted as her financial stability.
She stated that giving is an attribute she developed in childhood and believed in giving from the little she has. The actress further appreciated her fans who marked her new age with charitable acts.
She thanked her fans for celebrating her birthday with a donation to those less fortunate, saying that their generosity was greater than if they had given her the latest Benz.
In her words;
“What made me cry is reading the captions from different fan pages and realizing all of them separately believed the only thing they felt they could do for me on my birthday that would make me really happy is ‘Giving to the needy’. Because they know how much the act means to me.”
She acknowledged the fans in the UK who brought gifts on behalf of @the_bk_tribe, thanking them for their generosity and apologizing for not being available to receive the gifts.
Bukunmi expressed her gratitude to her fans, saying:
“Thank you all. And thank you to the UK fans that brought gifts…I owe you all a lunch date. SEE YOU ALL HERE AGAIN, ON THE 21ST OF MAY”
The post was met with overwhelming support from her fans, who praised her for her giving nature and selflessness. Some fans expressed their admiration for her and promised to emulate her kind gesture of giving.
Others congratulated her on her birthday and wished her more success in her career.
