…Donates to orphanages across the country
The fundraising which started as a joke have become a big thing for the 30 years old popular Nigerian musician; Davido and his beneficiaries as he stated in a statement that he had just disbursed over 237 to 424 orphanages in various States of the country.
This tradition was birthed in 2021 in preparation to his birthday when he challenged his colleagues to contribute N1 million each for him which suddenly turned out to one of the biggest fundraisings in recent times as Davido accumulated N200 million within 78 hours.
Davido who initially wanted to use these funds to clear his brand-new Rolls Royce from the Lagos port, decided to give the money to orphanages across the country; thus, a five-person committee was formed chaired by Titi Adebayo.
In his tweet, “I’ve always wanted to use my platform to serve others. I’m thankful that through your generosity, I’ve been able to do so.
We recently disbursed over N200m to several orphanages in Nigeria, a tradition that started a few years ago around my birthday.
Thank you to everyone who donated. With your help, we are changing lives.
This is what I mean when I say we rise by lifting others. These are words in action. God bless you all!”
