A woman in distress has called on well-meaning Nigerians and superstar singer, Davido to save her son who is diagnosed with HBSS.
Oluchi Anijiofor took to her Facebook page to make the appeal as she noted that the boy experiences difficulty sleeping in addition to running a temperature and having excessive body pain.
