When Oprah Noticed a College Student's Cracked Phone, She Bought Him a New One
Olufemi Yessoufou, the student, couldn't believe it.
When she noticed a college student's iPhone was cracked, Oprah Winfrey bought him a new one.
Winfrey visited Morehouse College last week to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Oprah Winfrey Scholars Program. As she was leaving, she rolled down her window to appear in a video with two freshmen, Zachariah Smith and Olufemi Yessoufou.
As she did so, she noticed Yessoufou's phone was cracked.
"That's me on your cracked phone!" Winfrey says in the video.
Yessoufou posted it on social media, where it quickly went viral. But the real surprise was yet to come: A new iPhone 11 Pro arrived in the mail.
"We can't have you out here viewing the world thru a cracked screen or cracked cover," Winfrey wrote in a note accompanying the phone. "The new camera you're gonna love for sure!"
Yessoufou couldn't believe it. Asked for his message for Winfrey, he replied: "Thank you so much for being the person that you are."
