Davido Returns 250 Million Naira to the Less Privileged
I wish to express my sincere gratitude to my families, colleagues, fans and the public for the generous expressions of love in recent days.
In my usual playful manner, I requested a few days ago that my friends and colleagues send money in celebration of my birthday. The response and outcome exceeded my expectations, as I recieved about 200 million naira in less than 2 days.
I truly appreciate everyone who donated hard earned funds and I am very thankful for your generosity.
I have always been passionate about giving back and helping people. In view of this, I am delighted to announce that all the funds received.
Total money ⁰NGN 200,000,000.00 will be donated to orphanages across Nigeria as well as the Paroche foundation.
In addition, I will be making a personal donation of 50 million naira, that’s a total of 250 million naira.
To oversee the distribution of funds to beneficiaries.
I have established a five person Disbursement committee. Members of the committee include:
1. Mrs. Titi Adebayo – chairman of the committee.
2. Professor Jonathan Nwosu – Secretary to the committee.
3. Professor Yahana Joel Asabe of the Northern Nigeria Seventh Day Adventist Union Conference.
4. Pastor (Dr) Oyalabu of Spring Time Development Foundation (SDF)
5. Professor Uloma Onuoha
The commitee will compile a list of orphanages across Nigeria. They will determine the number of children and their needs at each orphanage, and then divide the funds accordingly.
The commitee will also determine the portion of the money that will be donated to Paroche foundation. To maintain transparency, the committee will make public the names of the beneficiary orphanages and how much each will recieve.
A list of all beneficiaries and their verified account details will be submitted to Wema Bank, who will then be instructed to credit each beneficiary’s account.
My goal is to do this fundraising every year to celebrate my birthday and give back to people in need. It is my hope that friends, fans, colleagues in the industry and the public will continue to support me as I drive this cause.
