On Friday, 19′ November 2021, Ninger David Adedeji Adeleke (born November 21, 1992), popularly known as Davido, is a Nigerian-American singer, songwriter, and record producer, came out to donate all the NGN 250,000,000.00 raised from his Fans.
In his Words,
“I wish to express my sincere gratitude to my friends, colleagues, fans, and the public for the generous expressions of love in recent days. In my usual playful manner, I requested a few days ago that my friends and colleagues send money in celebration of my birthday. The response and outcome exceeded my expectations, as I received about NGN 200,000,000.00 in less than two days. I truly appreciate everyone who donated hard-earned funds and I am very thankful for your generosity.
I have always been passionate about giving back and helping people. In view of this, I am delighted to announce that all the funds received, totaling NGN 200,000,000.00, will be donated to orphanages across Nigeria as well as the Paroche foundation. In addition, I will be making a personal donation of NGN 50,000,000.00, bringing the total amount to NGN 250,000,000.00.
To oversee the distribution of funds to beneficiaries, I have established a five-person Disbursement Committee. Members of the committee include: 1. Mrs. Titi Adebayo— chairman of the committee. 2. Professor Jonathan Nwosu— secretary to the committee. 3. Professor Yahana Joel Asabe of the Northern Nigeria Seventh Day Adventist Union Conference. 4. Pastor (Dr) Oyalabu of Spring Time Development Foundation (SDF). 5. Professor Uloma Onuoha” Davido had to say
