Mavin Records CEO, Don Jazzy has promised to sponsor Taju, the young boy from Ibadan whose video has been trending on social media.

In the early hours of the day, Ayo Makun, the famous comedian, posted a video of a young and smart boy from Ibadan named Taju. The video was posted with a caption in which AY solicited for help for Taju, stating that Taju needs to go to school. The caption read;
