This is coming days after the singer requested his friends, colleagues, fans and the public send in donations for his birthday.
It was reported that he he took to his verified Instagram to release an official statement and plans for the N250,000.
In their Dozens, Kemi Olunloyo, Reno Omokri, Tonto Dikeh, Uche Jombo, Peruzzi, Mayorkun, Omojuwa, among others could not hold their joy but shower praises on OBO
Those saying Davido donated the money as an afterthought are pathetic. Look at the calibre of people on the committee to disburse the funds. It would‘ve taken days, if not weeks to contact them and get their buy in. This was a carefully thought out act of goodness

Raise 200m, add 50m from your pocket & give it all away to children who are vulnerable across Africa. He’s a special person, Davido has a great heart & shares my vision of helping people through charity.
