Despite the scrutiny and doubts, Davido has risen to the occasion, disbursing N237 million to 292 orphanages across Nigeria, changing the lives of countless young beneficiaries.
The remarkable journey began during Davido’s birthday celebrations in November 2021 when he appealed to his friends and colleagues in the entertainment industry to contribute to the cause.
