Davido to give over $600k fan donations to orphanages

Nigerian superstar, Davido has moved to donate over N250 million ($600,000) to charity.

This amount was garnered after the Afrobeat singer jovially invited his friends and industry mates to send him money for his birthday celebration.

On Thursday, November 18, the ‘La La’ singer broke the internet as musicians sent huge sums of money from all over the continent to celebrate him.

Due to this, the award-winning musician amassed over N200 million in barely two days as he intermittently shared screenshots of each transaction.

However, he seems to have made changes to the motive for the request.

In a post on Twitter, Davido announced his decision use the sum to alleviate the plight of orphans in Nigeria.

He explained that additionally, he “will be making a personal donation of N50,000,000 bringing the total amount to N250,000,000.”

“My goal is to do this fundraising every year to celebrate my birthday and give back to people in need,” he added.

He also expressed gratitude to all who donated to make the move possible.

Known outside showbiz circles as David Adedeji Adeleke, the musician turns 29 on Sunday, November 21.
