February 21, 2024

Afrobeat singer Davido has pledged a sum of 300 million to be shared to orphanages in Nigeria through his foundation.

The ‘Timeless’ singer said the donation would be done through his David Adeleke Foundation.

In the press release posted at the time he said: “I founded the DAF in 2022 with a strong desire and passion to continually assist and create a proper framework for the ongoing charitable works to benefit the good people of Nigeria. Through this Foundation we have raised millions of Naira and dispersed much-needed funds to hundreds of orphanages significantly improving the lives of countless children.”

Keeping with tradition which began back in 2021 after the singer’s birthday, when he made over ₦200 million in donations after sharing his bank account details on his Twitter (now X) page. After amassing the large sum of money, the singer announced that he planned to donate it all to orphanages across Nigeria, “I am delighted to announce that all the funds received totaling 200,000,000 will be donated to orphanages across Nigeria as well as the Paroche Foundation,” he said.

Keeping to his word, he disbursed the funds after adding an additional ₦50 million.
