In Nigeria, we have so many celebrities who engage in other activities asides acting, singing or dancing. They earn a lot of money, yet have the time to give back to the society.
These celebrities have large hearts, and so many people have benefited from their good deeds.
Moreover, we have celebrities who are moms and have to juggle their parenting with their voluntary work. We’re more than impressed with their ability to take care of their immediate family and the society.
Here are 5 female celebrities who are philanthropists:
