Oreofeoluwa Lawal-Babalola, a young boy who went viral in a recent video where he was begging his mother to Calm Down has been signed by an Abuja-based real estate outfit, T Pumpy Concept Limited as one of their brand ambassadors.
The 4-year-old boy became a social media sensation after a video of him surfaced online where he was trying to convince the mum from punishing him in a dramatic way.
“Mummy calm down and rest a little”, he was seen artfully pleading in the video when the mother attempted to whip him.
Oreofeoluwa signed a two-year contract with the real estate company on Saturday at its corporate headquarters in Abuja.
Speaking shortly before the contract was signed, the MD/CEO of T Pumpy Concept Limited, Mr Akintayo Adaralegbe, said he was moved by the boy’s courage and boldness during the conversation with his mum in the viral video, describing the boy’s action as smart, intelligent and resilient.
“While many people only watched and laughed over the 3-minute-18-seconds footage, I learnt a lot from it.”
“He is courageous, bold and innovative. It reminds us that as a people, no matter the situation, we should learn to CALM DOWN!”
“We decided to bring him on board because of his courage, tenacity and power to negotiate, which are some of the things that T Pumpy stands for.”
“On behalf of the staff and management of T Pumpy Concept Limited, I welcome Master Oreofeoluwa to this family.”
Oreofeoluwa’s mother, Mrs Lawal-Babalola, who signed the contract on behalf of her son, thanked T Pumpy for reaching out to her son.
She promised to do everything within her power to make sure the young man attains his dreams.
When asked to comment on his new endorsement, a visibly-elated Oreofeoluwa said: “Before you buy any land in Abuja, calm down and come to T Pumpy Estate, the developer that cares and your future is assured.”
T Pumpy also signed Ibadan-based comedy merchant, Ayo Ajewole, famously known as Woli Agba and Kannywood actress, Nafisa Abdullahi as its brand ambassadors.
At the event, T Pumpy also paraded other top artists in the entertainment industry such as Nollywood actors, Femi Adebayo, Tayo Odueke AKA Sikira Sindodo, Singer Sule Alao Malaika, Keji Adaralegbe (Baby K) and Osundare Damilare (Asiri comedy).
