Nigerian music star, Davido has fulfilled his promise of giving out money he raised during his birthday to several orphanages across Nigeria.


The singer raised N250M within 72 hours during his birthday celebration in November, 2021 after he shared his account details on social media, asking that who ever saw themselves as a friend of the star should send the minimum of N1million.

In a statement released via his Twitter page on Tuesday, February 15th, 2022, the music star thanked the committee that was set up to disburse the funds.

The statement, in part, read: “Since its inauguration, the members of the committee have worked tirelessly to ensure that they collate the names and information of the documented and verified orphanages,” .

He went on to reveal that the entire funds had been disbursed to 292 orphanages across the country.

The singer had vowed to ensure that the N250 million he donated to orphanages across the country gets to the children.

The father of three said his goal is to raise funds every year as part of activities to mark his birthday.

He prayed that his colleagues and friends would continue to support his benevolent act.
