Music executive Ubi Franklin urges celebrities to speak out over demise of Dowen College student



UBI FRANKLIN TO IYANYA: I forgive you, but you’ll eat your words soon

Nigerian music mogul, Ubi Franklin has taken to his social media platform to urge his colleagues in the entertainment industry to condemn the demise of 12-year-old Dowen College, Sylvester Oromoni who was reportedly beaten to death by his schoolmates over his refusal to join their cult group.

The scholar died earlier in the week after he sustained severe injuries.

In a series of tweets shared via his Twitter page on Friday, December 3, 2021, the father of four slammed those who have remained silent because of the identity of the owner of the school.’

“I know some of my colleagues or Abi some celebrities will not speak up about this “dowen college “matter because one of our colleagues is the owner of the school. I have been watching y’all pages and I know she is very close to you, yes you. Say something now,” he tweeted.
