The song came from the stable of the foundation, floated by the musician to tackle teenage pregnancy.

According to him, “I have released a single tagged CHINASA believing there is a CHINASA in every family.That’s the vulnerable teenager that is susceptible to making mistakes, particularly having teenage pregnancy.

It is on record with the Nigeria in Diaspora Commission, that Odusa Foundation in 2019 facilitated the safe return of a teenager from Dubai after she was taken there for prostitution. We constituted a team to rescue the lady and we gave her a ticket back to Nigeria to reunite with her family. Furthermore, we bought her a JAMB form.

“Odusa Foundation is working towards helping teenagers to shape their future, to help them achieve their lifelong ambitions. Apart from the complications of having teenage pregnancy, this trend can affect their education. So we look forward to having support from the public, well meaning Nigerians, Government and private establishments. This is what we need at this time, particularly in our country. We intend to help young ones to enable them thrive in all of their endeavours”, he reiterated.
