Nigeria is celebrating its 61st Independence Anniversary today, October 1st. Several Nollywood celebs have already started dropping messages in an attempt to keep hopes alive for a ‘better tomorrow’.
One of those who did was Kenneth Okonkwo. The popular Nollywood legend narrated how he met a young fuel attendant who got so excited to meet him for the first time that she insisted on paying for his fuel which costs N12,600.00 .
According to Okonkwo, he had to inquire about her salary only to find out that it was only N15,000.00 monthly.
The thespian who also doubles up as a lawyer, wrote;
“In this independence day, love is all we need. I was taught a lesson in love in this filling station. A young fuel attendant insisted she will pay for the fuel I bought to commemorate seeing me the first time.
“The fuel costs N12,600.00. I had to inquire about her salary and it was N15,000.00. I was shocked. She was willing to give all for love. I had to plead with her to allow me pay and decided to come down to grant all they asked. Until you are willing to give all to your passion, you may not get to the top. Show love to all you meet, irrespective of who they are. Happy independence anniversary and God bless”.

We really hope Kenneth Okonkwo also gave the young fuel attendant some love because it is not easy to give out almost all of one’s salary.
