Nollywood actress, Margaret Bandele Olayinka, popularly known as Iya Gbonkan, has expressed gratitude to her fans for making her dream come true before her death.
KanyiDaily recalls that the 64-year-old actress had cried out that she has been acting for decades yet doesn’t have a car. She claimed that she has been jumping on buses every day to get to her destination.
Iya Gbonkan, with a mournful tone in her voice, called on her fans to celebrate her while she is still alive, urging them not to wait until after her passing to show their support.
Following her plea, Nigerians came together and generously donated around N5 million towards a car and house project for Iya Gbonkan.
One Pastor Gabriel Agbala played a pivotal role in mobilizing kind-hearted people to contribute to the cause during his visit to Osogbo.
A few days ago, a fan named Mrs. Omobolanle Olatise selflessly donated a car to Iya Gbonkan, in addition to the N5 million donation which was diverted into her house project.
