Davido shares N237m to 424 orphanages


David Adeleke, better known as Davido has disbursed N237 million to 424 orphanages in the country.

The singer’s kind gesture is made public by himself via a statement he authored in which he shared details of the disbursement of the funds to 424 orphanages in various States.

“I’ve always wanted to use my platform to serve others. 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!” he tweeted.

Recall that the 29-year-old musician in November 2021 jokingly challenged his colleagues to contribute N1 million each for him for his birthday.

It however turned out to be one of the biggest fundraising in recent times with N200m made within 78 hours.

The singer, who had initially wanted to use the 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.
