Dear Davido, thank you for making the lifting of others, a cornerstone of your endeavour. I join your family and friends and millions of your fans in wishing you a memorable birthday. I wish you more years in good health, more award-winning music and, above all, lifting others.~ Atiku Abubakar
Multiple award-winning popstar, Davido, was recently in the news for a kind gesture towards orphans in the country. Days ago, the iconic artiste asked his friends and fans to donate a million naira each to him for his birthday.
The singer noted that he planned to use the money to ‘clear’ his newly acquired Bentley. After two days, the FEM singer garnered about N201m which was donated to his Wema bank account.
However, in a twist of event, the singer announced that he would be adding N50m to the N201m and donating it to orphanages across Nigeria. He further inaugurated a committee that will disburse the funds.
While many Nigerians lauded the singer’s kind gesture, veteran Nigerian singer, Baba Fryo, opined that he was disappointed that the singer neglected him, ‘a known face’, in his trying times, only to gift unknown orphans N250m.
In a speech via his Instagram account, the ‘Dem Go Dey Pose’ singer said, “There is something that I have been seeing on social media that someone gifted orphanages N250m. To me, the thing is funny. I remember when I was depressed, they tagged many of my colleagues; they tagged Davido, Tuface, and others but none of them responded. It was people that have never seen me in this life, people that do not know me that responded.
“This N200m that I am hearing about and seeing on social media is surprising to me. If someone like me who is popular and well known was not helped, it is people and orphanages that no one knows that is being helped; they are been given N250m, it is so funny. I will advise Nigerians and Black people to be wise and stop all these things.
