BBC Welcome to Lagos star, Vocal Slender To Launch "Ghetto Love" Project

The Ghetto Love project is a brainchild of the BBC Welcome to Lagos star, Vocal Slender, where he draws the attention of the public (locally & internationally) to the plight and sufferings of the Ghetto children & youth in Ajegunle slum in Lagos, Nigeria where the one-time scavenger was born & bred.

Vocal Slender uses his influence to appeal to the elites to donate their children’s used clothes, bags, shoes, toys, books and other life-sustaining items that may be of benefit to the people living in the Ghetto. This platform is also an opportunity for corporate bodies to render their corporate social responsibilities (CSR) to the community. The event is usually a mix of fun, entertainment and charity as many Ajegunle artistes perform to entertain the children and their families.
The first Ghetto Love event was held on the 8th November 2011 during the Konto Video Shoot where loads of children came in their numbers to be part of the video and were blessed with free food, clothes, shoes, etc.

The second was held during the 2012 Valentine Season (18th February) and it was used to show love to the Ghetto children. The high point of the second edition was the giving of scholarship to Gloria Peters, a 15 year old orphan who never went through primary school  but was admitted into high school class 1(JSS1).

The next event will be announced  subsequently. Are you interested in supporting the Ghetto Love project? Kindly send a mail to
