Actress Funke Akindele has shared an impressive photo and given an update on five-year-old Taju, who became a viral sensation months ago, after a video of him trying to speak correct English, went viral.

According to her, Taju who is now called Opeyemi is doing well under a foundation with the help of the Oyo State Government.

She wrote: “A couple of months ago, the video of TAJU, a little boy from Ibadan, Oyo State went viral on instagram courtesy of @aycomedian.

“I reached out and told him that I would like to meet TAJU. @funmiawelewa brought him to me and I fell in love with his intelligence and vibrance. I thought about how TAJU would have better care alongside a secure future and the best thing to do was hand him over to his state government.

“So, I reached out to Mrs Florence Ajimobi, the First Lady of Oyo State and founder , Access Basic Care Medical Foundation @accessbasiccare through my darling @abi_kd.

“I am delighted to let you all know that this little boy is doing well under this foundation @accessbasiccare and I present to you the new Taju now called OPEYEMI. Thank you ma. May God bless you more @florenceajimobi
“Thank you @funmiawelewa for reaching out to the boy firsthand. @aycomedian and for taking interest in him, starting up a fundraiser and putting in effort to make his life better God bless you.
