Davido neglected me in my time of need but donated N250m to orphanages – Baba Fryo
Multiple award-winning popstar, Davido, was recently in the news for a kind gesture towards orphans in the country. Days ago, the iconic artiste asked his friends and fans to donate a million naira each to him for his birthday.
The singer noted that he planned to use the money to ‘clear’ his newly acquired Bentley. After two days, the FEM singer garnered about N201m which was donated to his Wema bank account.
However, in a twist of event, the singer announced that he would be adding N50m to the N201m and donating it to orphanages across Nigeria. He further inaugurated a committee that will disburse the funds.
While many Nigerians lauded the singer’s kind gesture, veteran Nigerian singer, Baba Fryo, opined that he was disappointed that the singer neglected him, ‘a known face’, in his trying times, only to gift unknown orphans N250m.
In a speech via his Instagram account, the ‘Dem Go Dey Pose’ singer said, “There is something that I have been seeing on social media that someone gifted orphanages N250m. To me, the thing is funny. I remember when I was depressed, they tagged many of my colleagues; they tagged Davido, Tuface, and others but none of them responded. It was people that have never seen me in this life, people that do not know me that responded.
