Music sensation, David Adeleke also known as Davido has for the third consecutive year announced today, February 20th, 2024, via his social media platforms, his pledge to donate N300 million to orphanages across Nigeria.

In his post, Davido expressed his dedication to making a positive impact on the lives of orphaned children, stating that the details of disbursement would be disclosed tomorrow, February 21, 2024.

The donation reflects Davido’s ongoing efforts to support vulnerable communities in Nigeria.

Recall that in 2022, he disbursed N250 million to 292 orphanages in Nigeria.

The monies were the funds gifted to the 30-year-old singer on his birthday, totaling N200 million, and he added N50 million from his pocket.

Ahead of his birthday in November 2021, what had started as a joke, after the singer challenged his colleagues to contribute N1 million each for him, suddenly turned out to be one of the biggest fundraisers in recent time, as Davido accumulated N200 million within 78 hours.

Davido, who had initially wanted to use the funds to clear his brand-new Rolls Royce from the Lagos port, decided to give the money to orphanages across the country; thus, a five-person committee was formed chaired by Titi Adebayo.

In 2023, he again announced the disbursement of N237 million to 424 orphanages across Nigeria through his foundation.
