Oreofeoluwa Babalola, the four-year-old boy whose video went viral after telling his mother to calm down when she was about to beat him, has been given a multi-million naira endorsement deal.
The boy signed a two-year contract with a real estate company in Abuja, T Pumpy Concept Limited, as its brand ambassador.
Oreofeoluwa signed the contract on Saturday, August 22, at the company’s headquarters.
The MD/CEO of T Pumpy Concept Limited, Akintayo Adaralegbe, said the young boy exhibited smartness, intelligence and resilience in the video that went viral.
Adaralegbe said while many people only watched and laughed over the video, he learnt a lot from it.
Reacting to the endorsement, the boy’s mum, Toluige Babalola, thanked the real estate company for reaching out to her son.
Oreofeoluwa said Mathematics is his best subject, adding that his ambition is to become a police officer in the future.
Speaking about her son, Toluige said Oreofeoluwa does not like to be idle. She said he always wants to engage in something.
According to the mum, if Oreofeoluwa is not in school, he will be playing football or riding his bicycle.
Oreofeoluwa’s mother said their lives have changed since the video went viral, adding that she has met people she never thought she could meet or talk to.
She said she has been inundated with calls from people who took an interest in her son and would like to see him.
