Twenty-three year old Nigerian singer and songwriter, Cynthia Morgan, said today that she established her new charity platform, Mama Cynthia Empowerment Foundation, to give back to the society, especially the needy.
Morgan had undertaken a tour of two Lagos communities, Bariga in Somolu and Makoko community in Yaba areas of Lagos. During her visits to the two densely populated communities, the artiste donated food items and toiletries to the residents. She posted the pictures of her activities on her Instagram account. The accompanying posts read:
“This is me telling these beautiful kids that where you sleep today does not determine your future. God does not sleep or slumber; today is definitely one of the most important days in my life.
“It has been an amazing journey for me and I just want to thank God for supporting me enough to support others and making us all smile at the end. The kids were so happy and I was happier.’’
Morgan shot into limelight following the release of two singles entitled:“Don’t Break My Heart,’’ and “Lead Me On’’, which had been on the airwaves with comments from critics. Although she is one of the youngest artistes in the Nigerian music industry, Morgan has showed the sort of experience peculiar to an old head.
