Sulaimon Solomon, known by his stage name Khaid, a Nigerian rapper and singer, has made a generous contribution of N2 million to support Liam Aloba, the son of the late Mohbad and Ilerioluwa Aloba.

“In my own little way, I’ll love to support the family by giving N2 Million to the wife of our late brother and covey 100 royalties of the newly released tribute song “Forever” to Liam Aloba Eyinimofeoluwa. Rest On IMOLE,” he posted.
