While Oprah was on campus, attending Atlanta’s Morehouse College 30th Anniversary, one student seized an opportunity to take a flick with her.
Oprah presented at the event supporting her own Oprah Winfrey Scholars Program. She donated an additional $13 million to the program brining her total contributions to $25 million since she launched the scholarship program in the late 80’s.
While Oprah was on campus, one student, Olufemi Yessoufou (@BigDon0), seized an opportunity to take a selfie with the mega personality.
While Olu was filming their encounter, Oprah can be heard saying, “Hey that’s me, that’s me on your cracked phone.”

The footage vent viral obviously catching the attention of Oprah. Less than 24 hours later, Olu received a personal message from someone in Oprah’s management team telling him that she wanted to send him a new phone.
“Oprah already has this phone for you, and it’s my job to make sure you get it,” the message read, Olu told Buzzfeed News.
Days later, you guessed it, a personalised letter and the new iPhone 11 was in in Olu’s mailbox!
Oprah’s letter read, “Dear Olufemi, we can’t have you out here viewing the world thru a cracked screen or a cracked cover. The new camera you’re gonna love for sure!”
I mean, this is Oprah, in her prime, being the BEST version of herself possible – selfless and little cheeky!
