Music superstar, Davido will not let his efforts at collecting funds from his friends and close associates go in vain as he made an emphatic declaration about his generated money. Davido raised a staggering N201 million from the exercise that lasted for just a few days and added his personal N50 million to the money to make an approximate total of N250 million and donated everything to orphanage homes in Nigeria.
A fan raised concerns that the money will be diverted by welfare officers at such homes. The fan wrote:
“I told my mum what Davido did and I’ve never seen her revolt so passionately against something. She said the money won’t get to the children cos welfare officers steal all.
“I hate Nigeria. She said it’s so bad that nurses never want to leave welfare homes when they’re posted there.” The singer then commented under the post that he will personally monitor the distribution himself. “I will personally make sure this doesn’t occur!! I put that on my life.”
