Engr. Ndubuisi Emenike, the founder of the Ndubuisi Emenike Foundation who is an Imo State born philanthropist, on Wednesday the 11th April 2018 dressed as a wretched man and hit a popular market known as World Bank Market in Owerri the capital city of Imo State.
According to Darlington Flowrymz Ibekwe, the multi-millionaire who disguised himself as a beggar – went round the market begging for a sum of Two Thousand Naira (N2,000) and so many people turned him down, people laughed at him, some asked him to get out of their shops angrily, but in all these, he remained calm and kept asking.

Finally, a lady offered him one thousand naira and another offered him a thousand naira again making it the sum of two thousand naira, he then called both of them out, surprisingly in front of the whole market as his entourage of over seven (7) exotic cars drove in and he pulled out fresh cash bundles and rewarded them both with Two Hundred Thousand Naira (N200,000) each making it Four Hundred Thousand Naira (N400,000) and also returned their one thousand naira notes to them.
The World Bank Market Owerri was agog with lots of surprise as the philanthropist urged them to always lend a helping hand to those in need as they never know where their blessings might come from.
When asked why he demonstrated this act, he said; ”Today is my daughter’s birthday Kourtney Emenike and I couldn’t think of a better way of celebrating it if not touching lives”.
The beneficiaries were still in shock over what just happened as the Imo born millionaire hopped into his convoy and zoomed off.
