Founder, Chairman and CEO of LuckyBay Homes Nigeria Limited, Ujomu Lucky Ikechukwu has continued to be a force to reckon with in the Nigerian entertainment industry, especially comedy sector.
No doubt, he has earned several awards for his immense contributions to the growth of the industry.
The LuckyBay Homes boss who hails from the same Ibusa in Oshimili North Local Government Area, Delta State, as Obiekwu was touched by the pitiful story of the ex-defender who had resorted to using his Nissan car for commercial transportation to earn a living for his family.
He reportedly gave Obiekwu the sum of one million naira, joining a handful of Nigerians who had extended helping hands to the former national team player.
Despite being publicity-shy, the MD/CEO of LuckyBay Homes found himself in the spotlight when the news of his benevolence leaked and was forced to make clarifications.
He had at the time explained: “When I heard about it, I just made contact to confirm the authenticity of the story. They sent me his (Obiekwu’s) contact and his account details. So, I just decided to make that donation to help him in his situation. ”
Since then he has kept his charity under wraps, although he had at different times disclosed plans to set up empowerment funds and to build a school in a bid to educate Nigerian youths.
His motivation, as he revealed, was the desire to contribute his quota to the effort to eradicate poverty in society.
Ujomu Lucky Ikechukwu spends nothing less than 25/30 million naira yearly on philanthropy.
