In a rare gesture of giving, Nigerian born international music sensation Davido has splashed N201 million to orphanage homes in the country.
Speaking on why he is giving out the N201 million donated to him by his friends and fans to orphanages across Nigeria, Davido said “a lot of people need it more than me”.
The singer, philanthropist Davido, explained why he is giving out the N201 million donated to him by his friends and fans ahead of his birthday tomorrow, November 21.
Davido said, not that he is being corky, but he knows he doesn’t need the money while some people really need the money. According to him, he will be adding N50 million of his money, making it N251 million to be distributed to different orphanages.
”The love that people have shown me is really unbelievable. I used to question myself like ‘is being a good person even worth it’ because I remember many people be like David you are too nice, you are too free, you are too accessible, you are too this, you are too that and it got to a point where I was even thinking to myself like, is this thing affecting me…but these past few days have shown me that no man..I appreciate it.
“A lot of people have called me saying ‘it’s your money, keep it. Don’t listen to what people are saying’. Not to be corky, The money is a lot. I wouldn’t say I don’t need it but I think there are more people who need it more than me.
“People were like sending me N5000, N2000, N3000, N100. This might be their last bar.
“Right now we are at N201 million. I have decided to donate all the money in Nigeria. I am going to add N50 million of my own money. So that it is N251 million that I am going to be disbursing,” he said.
