424 orphanages in the country have received N237 million from star singer Davido.
The 29-year-old musician revealed this in a statement when he shared details of the disbursement of the funds to 424 orphanages in various States.
When Davido asked his friends to give him N1 million apiece in November 2021, it was meant to be a joke, but when he raised N200 million in 78 hours, it ended up being one of the greatest fundraising campaigns in recent memory.
Davido opted to donate the money to orphans nationwide instead of using it to clear his brand-new Rolls Royce from the Lagos port, and a five-person committee headed by Titi Adebayo was established.
Davido tweeted: “I’ve always wanted to use my platform to serve others. Thankful that through your generosity, I’ve been able to do so.
“We recently disbursed over N200m to several orphanages in Nigeria, a tradition that started a few years ago around my birthday.
“Thank you to everyone who donated. With your help, we are changing lives.
“This is what I mean when I say we rise by lifting others. These are words in action. God bless you all!”
