Make A Wish Foundation Issues A Statement Regarding Nino Okoye’s Wish
On June 21st, the mother of 6-year-old Nino Okoye tweeted about Nino’s declined wish to meet Chris Brown. The Make-A-Wish Foundation has reached out to us and issued the following statement.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation® has worked for years to grant wishes to meet Chris Brown. Since 2006, he has granted 22 wishes, and we are are currently working with him to grant several more. If a child who qualifies for a wish through the Make-A-Wish Foundation has been told that we do not grant wishes to meet Chris Brown, that statement has been made in error. We are working actively to clarify any misunderstandings that may have occurred with potential wish children relative to requests to meet Chris Brown.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation have also backtracked their first decision by contacting Nino’s mom to make the wish come true but she’s no longer interested in their offer. Nino Okoye will be meeting his favorite R&B singer soon. Due to Chris Brown reaching out to his mother yesterday and agreeing to grant Nino’s Okoye wish.
