Ex-husband of actress, Tonto Dikeh, Olakunle Oladunni Churchill, who is a popular Nigerian businessman and philanthropist, would be supporting some 50 young Ghanaian entrepreneurs.

This would form part of activities by his Churchill Foundation, which focuses on assisting people’s “creativity in areas of promoting development in Ghana.”

In a press statement on Friday, he indicated that he would “continue to play specialized roles in supporting youth, promoting intellectual contents and generally investing into others, with a view to continuously improving and also add value to humanity.”
