Talented Mavin act, Korede Bello turned 20 years old, with him celebrating just his 5th birthday due to being born on a leap day.

In celebration, the ‘Godwin’ singer visited the Down Syndrome Foundation of Nigeria where he spent part of the day with kids who live with the rare condition.

Explaining why he decided to spend his day with the kids, Korede took to his Instagram account to share what motivated the visit – which also occurred four years ago when he last celebrated his birthday…

He shared his thoughts on his Instagram page and wrote:

We share something in common . I have an extra day and they have an extra chromosome (that’s why they are the way they are ) #SpecialChild ren #DownSyndrom e
