In August, a video of a 4-year-old boy crying and pleading with his mum using the statement “mummy be calming down” surfaced on social media.

To many, it was a source of amusement, a thing everyone laughed about.

Some people were however touched as to how the little boy was pleading with his mum. The same cannot be said for the little boy and his mum.

According to his mother, the incident has been a blessing for her.

She had the opportunity to meet some famous people including Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

The governor also used Babalola's slang in his speech while addressing the state ahead of the Sallah festivity.

Oreofeoluwa Lawal Jeremy Babalola, in an interview with BBC, said he was pleading with his mum because she wanted to beat him. He also said nobody taught him that statement, he just said it and since that video went viral, he has been a good boy.

Madu,11, struck luck after a video of him dancing barefoot in the rain outside the studio where he usually practices went viral.

The video caught the eye of the American Ballet Theatre, who offered him a scholarship and arranged internet access for virtual training during the summer.

Aside from his scholarship to the US, donations have been made to the academy that teaches the dance at a free cost to aid support the course.
