Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa has taken his philanthropic work to a new level as he donated N5.5 million to struggling veteran Kannywood actor, Baba Karkuzu.

He said, via Daily Trust:

"I am now blind as I am talking to you. I seriously need financial assistance. I don’t have food to eat and feed my family."

Musa got the information, reached out to the actor, and immediately sent the sum of N500,000 to him.

The former CSKA Moscow star further informed the screen legend to search for a house worth between N4 milliion and N5 million, promising to buy it for him.

The Sivasspor of Turkey forward has now fulfilled his promise, sending N5.5 million to the veteran, and a house worth N8 million was acquired.

Sports Brief reached out to the footballer, who confirmed that the actor needed a bigger house. Musa said:

"The house is worth N8 million; some people are also assisting him. They had N2.5 million. I sent N5.5 million, so we can buy a bigger house for him."

It was gathered that Karkuzu could not contain his joy as he was handed the documents for his new home.

He was said to have burst into tears, saying prayers for all those that donated to his cause.

Musa lowers fuel price

Sports Brief earlier reported that amid the continued increase in fuel prices in Nigeria, Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, lowered the petrol price at his filling stations.

Last Tuesday, petroleum prices rose to N617 per litre at various outlets of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) in most parts of the country.

This came months after an upward review of pump prices of petroleum products was embarked upon.
