Dr. Umar Johnson requests continued donations for repairs and renovations to the school. He petitions applicants for work or volunteering at the FDMG Academy to contact him.
After a controversial fundraising campaign that has led to allegations of fraud and deceit, YouTube commenters respond to school announcement with excitement, restored belief, skepticism and precautious celebration.

TheBarberShow us the deed! show us a ledger of where all of the money has gone that has already been donated before asking for more money. Who’s the real estate agent. What’s the address of the school. How much did the school cost out of all the money you collected. When will it open where are the board of directors. Did the city of prove it. Is the government approving it. Is it a nonprofit organization or a for-profit organization. These are things that you’re donators have a right to know!! – Wigs N’ Wine TV

I doubted but if this i legit. More power to you and congrads 🤗🤗🤗 – Zambia McCorvey
I really hope this is real. I watched the video and it seemed sketchy. The message was great and the video was setup nicely but not what I think he would do if he actually purchased a school. I’ve watched many of his videos and he’s very confident. This seems suspect. – Reginald Marshall
I’ve been praying for this day to happen regardless of the haters. I’m supporting👏👏👏 – Gifi Amo
