Popular Nigerian singer, David Adeleke professionally known as Davido in an official press statement released on his social media disclosed that the total of N250,000,000 he gathered from his loya fans, family has disbursed to 292 orphanages home across the country.
Recall in November 2021, Davido told his loyal fans to send him N1M each if they truly love his music so that he can clear his Rolls Royce from port ahead of his 29th birthday, in what started off as joke turned into money making machine as Davido received up N200,000,000 in his newly opened Wema Bank account.
Davido further sparked reactions from netizens as he added N50,000,000 to the N200,000,000 early gathered from fans making N250,000,000, then set up five man committee to monitor the disbursement of N250M across the orphanages home across the country.
In the recent statement released via his verified Twitter handle for the purpose of transparency, the “Jowo” crooner disclosed that the disbursement of the funds (N250M) is complete.
Davido added that he has listed the names and amounts disbursed to the various orphanages.
The singer in the statement released wrote;
“As a follow up to the press statement I released on 19th November 2021 where I announced my intention of donating the total sum of N200 million received from my friends and family, together with my personal donation of N50 million, to orphanages across Nigeria, I bring you an update.
As promised, a five-man disbursement committee was set up. Since its inauguration, the members of this committee have worked tirelessly to ensure that they collate the names and information of documented and verified orphanages. I am pleased to announce that the disbursement of funds is complete.
So far, the total of N250,000,000 has been disbursed to 292 orphanages
As promised in my first statement, I have listed/attached the names and amounts disbursed to
the various orphanages. In the spirit of transparency, I thought it wise to give you my loyal
supporters, fans, friends and family an update in this regard.
I would like to say a big thank you to everyone that made this possible, the committee of high caliber and principled people who dedicated their time to ensuring this task was expeditiously carried out, my wonderful family, friends and well wishers. Thank you for your continuous
support and love.
Always remember, we rise by lifting others.”
