Popular singer, David Adeleke aka DAVIDO has fulfilled his promise of donating N250 million to orphanage homes.
As part of his birthday celebration in November 2021, Davido had sent out a video message to his friends and colleagues in the entertainment industry to send money to him.
In a few hours, the DMW label boss was able to amass over N100 million, which later grew to N200million over a few days. He also added a personal donation of N50 million to make it N250 million.
Davido later promised that he would set up a committee to ensure the disbursement of the money to orphanages across the country.
