Ibadan Big Boy Femi Lekuti Aka Danku Baba Imole Suffers Stroke, Seeks Financial Help

Feb 2nd, 2016 – Ibadan Big Boy Abiodun Femi Lekuti Danku Baba Imole Suffers Stroke, Seeks Financial Help

One of the biggest boys in Ibadan in the early 90s, a socialite named Femi Lekuti aka Danku is currently in a bad shape.

The Ibadan big boy whose mansion used to be a tourist attraction spot for the big boys in town is now down with stroke.

In the early 90s, no party can happen in town without his presence.

His battle with stroke started last year after he lost his bid to become Ibadan S-W House of Assembly rep.

According  to whispering birds in Ibadan, Danku was at Genesis event center late last year for the birthday party of one of his friends though he couldn’t spray money like he used to but he was thankful for the gift of life.

He returned the same night to his rented 2 bedroom flat in Apata area of Ibadan where he reportedly slumped and since then, he has been battling stroke.

Danku who is currently in Abeokuta needs urgent financial help to seek traditional cure to his ailment.

This is what the socialite told a reporter who visited him over the weekend:

“Yes, I’m battling stroke which has left part of my body in paralysis, right now I’m in Abeokuta where I was directed to seek traditional cure. Please reach my friends, tell them to help, I don’t want to die”.

    Tell God u don’t want to die not friends! This period you won’t see any friend like before. Now you will know what life truly means. My mum died of stroke at a young age and none. Of her friends came. Talk to God and make sure u seek proper care.

    MAY god heal him… this is my take in this, no party can happen in Ibadan without him, his mansion was a tourist attraction for the big boys, he went to a party but couldn’t spray like before, he went to his two bedroom rented apartment.. what happened to his tourist attraction mansion, what happen to his money to seek medical help abroad, where are his party mates and fellow big boys to help him, now, so called big boyzzzzzzzzzzz

      @Kay.A! It will be nice to watch your mouth and every little words thats destiny out of it. Theres no point in mucking the man and his status. you never know what will come of your own life, but its a same nobody knows you and we will not heard of your own death…***** you.

    The grim reality is that those friends that once dined with you and drained your wealth will not be there for you now that you are in a pitiable lutch. Vain things!

    I suggest as you seek financial support, seek alongside spiritual life. Seek to live your remaining life in more active service to your Maker.

    Let the people he helped when the going was sweet and smooth help him na. This is the reason why I always emphasis on investing in reasonable people so that they can help too when the going is really tough.

      True, but how do you distinguish reasonable from unreasonable ? May God have mercy and heal you Femi.

      How will you know reasonable people to invest in ? It was when things like this happens that we all know we don’t have anybody than God,Ourself and Your natural Children ,not even your families sometimes. May the Lord have mercy on us all and more that the guy is dead a year later without getting any help areas he can have peace RIP DANKS

    Pls. If you can help, help him so that he will learn a big lesson. He suffered stroke probably due to hypertension because he should not have gone to the last party where he could spray as usual.
    He should seek help in a foreign hospital and not native herbs when it is too late and because it is cheaper. Native herbs are good but not as such a critical stage. Next time you have big money, save some in a good bank account.

    I know this man very well before giving my life to christ,there set are opresure when they se less previledge people then they look at the person like if God was nit the one that create the fellow, they can help anybody but they have permanent room in Drovans, kS hote, premia hotel, sharaton and hilton and they can spray millions in front of musicians most especial K1daltimate what a wast life, my own gift aand advice is that you seek jesus and ask for mercy he alone can come to your aid now and I pray God will have mercy on you in jesus name.

    I met the guy lately. Fantastic , likely & very strong then. Never knew he would be sick soon. For the sake of his kids , his current humble & lovely wife. Let share so that whoever can help should help. No one is above challenges except God. They should publish his account so whoever wants to help can do so. “Ti eni tie de lamo, Ao mo eni ti tie enbo! Think of it people invested in shares & businesses but crashed. Am not saying one should spend his money recklessly but the ultimate protection of what we have is GOD.

    Reading thru this makes me feel bad about this gentle man, he was really a big boy, when i say big boy am mean one of the biggest boys nigeria ever produced, Some people say its not easy to make money but me i say its easy to make money but alt-mostly difficult to manage it, he is not going to be the first person getting back this broke, Please my fellow nigerians, anything you do for him is not lost cos any man can get broke or stay broke, this is one yoruba adage that says OHUN GBOGBO LOWO ORI, ORI LABA BO KA F’ORISA SILE.

    I’m not here to judge I’m just concern with all the money he made he has no investment to his name,no condition is permanent we should always remember tomorrow instead of living extravagant life,spreading millions on musicians,pls big boys of today learn from his mistake so you won’t be history tomorrow ,what’s the essence of money you have that won’t last you until your old age?at this point no friends will come to your rescue,you are on your own you just have to call on heaven!!!!

    I am so happy i meet you , happy to have the opportunity to exchange a lot of discussions with you .. talk real deep down about life . you made me understand a lot of things in life.. about family , friends and so called wife. you are indeed a wonderful man . a man of respect . an hard working man . a wonderful chef who is proficient in all aspects of food. i really wish i am in good financial status i would have love to help but the situation of the nation is not so good .. i pray that God will heal you and be with you ..

    NOTE to those who say rubbish about him .. please if you dont know someones story why dont you just keep your mouth than saying things you dont know .. some of you saying shit cant survive what he has passed through in life .. if you know him real well he is smart very intelligent.. hard working and peoples lover .. i can remember how sweet the prawn we ate together about years ago in your Chinese restaurants.. i will continue to pray for you and i believe in God he has never failed not for once.. May God grant you a grate recovery . and for those that are saying what they dont know .. God will help you and you will never face any challenges that will overcome you .. Amen

      Nobody is above mistakes; lets all forget about his wrong-doing,lets not judge him or remind him what he has done wrong and i want us to remember only almighty Allah can judge. Lets pray for forgiveness on his behalf and also for ourselves. My dear brothers and sisters, you might be wondering while am concerned about ( Femi Lekuti aka Mr Danku or imole Ayo)

Some of us mockring him, the young man suffer for stroke all some could do is to digging into his past, is life we are talking about here. close friend of his can open an account on his behalf of Mr Femi Lekuti. Pls let help, lets us remember one word (whos next to suffer Stroke? Could be any of us. Pls help him for the sake of allah, ameen.
