Famous Nigerian singer, Davido has announced his decision on the use of the N200m contributed by his friends and fans.
Recall that the 30BG singer took to his Instagram page few days ago asking his friends and colleagues to send N1m each to him.
At first, Davido mentioned he needed N100m to clear his Rolls-Royce at the port.
However, he surpassed the amount as he received 200m in the last 48hours.
The singer, giving update on his Instagram page, announced that the N200m received will be donated to orphanages across the country.
He also donated a personal sum of N50m to the total amount.
Part of the post read: “I wish to express my sincere gratitude to friends, fans, colleagues and the general public for the generous expressions of love in recent days.
“In my usual playful manner, I requested few days ago that my friends and colleagues send money in celebration of my birthday. The response exceeded my expectations as I received N200m in less than two days. I truly appreciate everyone.
“In view of this, I’m delighted to announce that all funds received totaling N200m will be donated to orphanages across Nigeria as well as Paroche foundation.
“In addition, I will be making a donation of N50m, bringing total to N250m.”
Ngerians urged to save Fadeyi Oloro’s life
Coalition for A Better Nigeria has urged citizens to save the life of Ojo Arowosafe, popularly known as Fadeyi Oloro.
The Coordinator, Bamiji Awa, made the appeal on behalf of the ailing Nollywood veteran in a statement on Tuesday.
Awa said the actor was in dire need of generous and urgent support to restore his failing health.
The situation, he explained, was made public after years of Oloro’s health crisis “beyond the control of his immediate family.”
The President-General, Grand Council of Yoruba Youths, disclosed that a series of tests had been conducted.
But efforts to ascertain the nature of the ailment had remained futile.
“Arowosafe had sold all his property while moving from one hospital to another in search of a cure”, Awa added.
