Should She Be Compensated By Success Adegor’s Parent For Making The Viral Video That Brought Them Millions?

The 23-year-old graduate of Public Administration from the Auchi Polytechnic, Stephanie, who recorded the video that made Success Adegor go viral said she was shocked about the attention the video got.

Stephanie, who lives in the same compound as Success’s family, was running an errand when she ran into Success and recorded a video of her just for entertainment. But when she posted it on her WhatsApp status, people started asking for the video because it was funny. She also uploaded it on her Instagram and Facebook accounts and the video went viral from there.

However, Stephanie said that, as the initiator of the video, she has not received any show of appreciation from Success’ parents.

In a chat with PUNCH, Stephanie criticised Success’ mother for allegedly hiding things from her since her daughter started getting famous.

She said,

If you call Success’ mum now, she will tell you that the Sapele LGA chairman has given me money and that people should not give me any money. She told me that the money in her account was N700,000, not knowing that the money in the account was more than N5.3m, which good-hearted Nigerians have given them.

That is why I am angry with her. I didn’t tell her I wanted to share the money 50/50 with her. She should have told me the truth. I don’t really understand why she was hiding everything from me. She told me that she would give me N400,000 from the N700,000. I didn’t do the video because of money but since money is coming out of it, I should be carried along, rather, she started hiding everything from me.

My parents have asked me to forget about it. I even promised to help Success speak English and dress better. The local government chairman said if they don’t want to give me money, I should forget about it but it is not supposed to be like that. They were not even sure of getting N100,000 all through the year but now that they are swimming in millions, they want to give me N400,000. I have decided to leave the money with them.

“The LG chairman has said I should summit my CV, which I have done. If I don’t get a call from the local government, I will have nothing to show for my efforts. I believe my helper will come. I am a graduate. As we speak to you now, I don’t have a dime on me. I think she’s being greedy, but my parents have advised me to leave the money issue.

    If she didn’t make the video, help wouldn’t have located the family. She’s the source of their fortune directly or indirectly so the best they can do is to compensate her with a million naira if it’s true they have #5.3 million already.

    Money will finish but humanity remains.

      Grace Osuah The initial intent for making that video was to make a joke and not to help the poor child. After listening to success and making the video, did she bother to pay the #900 for Success to return to school? Yet she was full of laughter and now wants a compensation.

      Did she seek the consent of the parents to post such video of their child online? Imagine if this turned sour, will she come out to say she was the one who made the video?

      She is just a cheap and greedy girl looking for attention

This schools sending kids happens everyday both in community and private schools. So was just lucky and hers was aired. This school success attends has been recognized and on reconstruction. So why is it hard for this girl to be recognized and also benefit from the financial life change. Sentiments apart, she is not greedy, she deserves better

Delta state government, I need a job, I need money for my business’ , do you know she would have gotten more than 5 million? People would have contributed.

      Arni Ehmma, if no one supports you I do. No one is saying the Lady shouldn’t be appreciated, it’s not a must for her to be. If Success’ parents didn’t appreciate her she should leave it for God who allowed such opportunity come their way. She was only a vessel, God could have used anyone else. The Lady shouldn’t act for God, no need to come online to speak about it, God who made it happen thru you will also know how to reward you.

      What are we even saying sef… What does the Bible say about helping the poor?

      My issue here is her feeling of entitlement! Why is she harassing that family for appreciation?

      And having appreciated her sef with about half a million naira, madam is demanding more.

      1. Success is her NEIGHBOR. She dare video a little child’s unfortunate situation and without parent’s consent, post it on social media for laughter.
      2. The fees was 900 Nine hundred naira. She could’ve helped if she wanted.
      3. She said in an interview that it was initially for fun sake that she made the video.
      Shebi if nothing good came out of it all, the parents, her neighbors wouldn’t be embarrassed that they couldn’t afford 900 naira.

U wer only d tool God used! Yes well meaning Nigerians even d media would appreciate u in der way? For example d guy dat started dis “O to ge movement in kwara state” he didn’t go abt asking d media sorted d guy out! Pls don’t hold d girls parents ransom bcos even d video u made LIKE U SAID” WAS MADE FOR FUN! “u wanted to make a joke out of d little girls situation but God in His mercy turned d humiliation into a testimony so Y would u want to take credit or get paid for being used by God? Whatever u r given appreciate it ND let God bless u more (physically u will see it).
    That’s d problem wit Nigerians greed, D family never sent u ND dey don’t Owe u any explanation, let d world speak for you, How many talents have been found by foreigners and they don’t go on social media demanding for money but at d end dey get compensated even from pple dat r not related to d case! I’m not saying u won’t get something but pls don’t let ur greed ND eagerness destroy wat u deserve at d end loose everything!
