Davido, a Nigerian music singer, has explained how some people believe he wasted the money he vowed to gift to orphans on his 2021 birthday.
After sharing his account information on social media on his birthday in 2021, Davido raised N200 million in less than 72 hours.
Trevor Noah, a South African comedian and TV personality, recently spoke with the music singer about how he was set to raise that massive sum of money during a recent interview.
“I started calling famous people…I was like c’mon you know I made a hit song for you last year. I was like everybody that I have helped in one way or the other, that’s why this tour is called we rise by lifting others. I was scared it came up to $600,000 and at this point, I’m like can I keep this?” he said.
“We know that so much is going on around the world and I was like I can’t be that insensitive and I spoke to my dad who is my mentor and he said ‘you know you can’t keep that money.’ A lot of people were like no keep it, you’ve done so much for the community.”
The musician went on to say that some people thought he had spent the money on himself because it took so long to get it to the orphanage houses.
Every year, as part of celebrations celebrating his birthday, the music singer and father of three said his goal is to raise donations.
He hoped that his colleagues and friends would continue to support him in his good deed.
