Nigeria’s music superstar, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has fulfilled his pledge by disbursing N250 million gift money to selected orphanages across the country.
In an update via his Twitter handle, Davido listed the names of the orphanages that benefitted from his gesture.
“I am pleased to announce that the disbursement is complete and so far, total of N250,000,000 has been disbursed to 292 orphanages.
“In the spirit of transparency I thought it wise to give to you my loyal supporters, fans friends and family an update in this regard,” he tweeted.
Davido thanked the committee he set up to actualize the project for a job well done, saying it is a “committee of high calibre and principled people” who dedicated their time to ensure the job was done.
“We rise by lifting others”, said Davido while commending his fans, family and friends.
Recalled that in November 2021, the singer asked his friends to gift him N1 million each ahead of his birthday.
He was gifted N200 million in less than 48 hours and Davido in turn decided to donate the money to orphanages across the country.
He added N50 million from his personal purse to make it N250 million.
