The donation comes at about the same time when Nigerians are grappling with the hike in food and petrol prices.

Last year, the singer had disbursed N237m to several orphanages.


In October 2022, the singer also donated N250m to 292 orphanages.

The donation will be done through The David Adeleke Foundation (DAF).

He said: “I and my foundation pledge the sum of 300 million Naira to orphanages around Nigeria … as my yearly contribution to the nation. Details of disbursement tomorrow.”

Meanwhile, the Senator representing Ogun East, Gbenga Daniel, on Monday urged Nigerians not to be overwhelmed with the worsening economic situation of the country.

He said they should show understanding because President Bola Tinubu inherited what he described as a failed economy.

Daniel said he could see light at the end of the tunnel.

Speaking during his tour of Ijebu Ode Local Area of Ogun State, he attributed the current hardship to the failed economy which he said President Bola Tinubu inherited from his predecessor.

The former governor of Ogun State revealed that unfortunately, due to one reason or the other, Tinubu could not talk about this reality but has been working round the clock to find solutions to the challenges confronting the nation.

Daniel pleaded with Nigerians to show understanding and cooperate with the present administration as it remains committed to a more prosperous nation.

He added that he was quite aware just like the government of the day that there was hunger in the land, saying that this was why he had decided to lend a helping hand with the monthly distribution of over 12,000 food packs to the people of the senatorial district.

Aside distribution of over 12,000 food packs to the people at the event, empowerment tools such as sowing machines, generators, and grinding machines among others were also handed over to the people.

The senator said “Really, things might not be so good as we want it but I want to plead with you my people to show understanding because our President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu inherited what we can call a failed economy.

“But it is impossible for him to talk. With all the things that have happened before him, he cannot talk, all he is trying to do is to find the solution.


“I want to assure you that there is light at the end of the tunnel and our country will be better for it. The President needs our cooperation now more than ever before and I assure you that just very soon everything will be fine with us.”

Daniel reiterated that he was committed to using his representation at the Senate to facilitate laudable projects that will make life more meaningful for the residents of Ogun East.
