It no longer news that Davido heart is as big as his bank account and the success of his music. The singer is well-known for his random acts of kindness. Also known to be one of the most successful self-made artists in Africa. Without a doubt, the news of his good deeds just keeps on-coming.
Today, we celebrate this living music legend. To do that we will be outlining all the amazing things done by this iconic singer.
Couple of month back, someone tweeted about a certain Mr.Suleyman, a young student that couldn’t afford to continue his studies. Even after he had received all As in his West African Examination Council (WAEC) due to financial constraint.
Following how viral the tweet went, Davido took to his Twitter to ask for the contact of the boy. Later, he stated that he had found the boy and that the boy will be getting a full scholarship to study at Adeleke University, Ede.
The list of kindness showed by Davido is too vast to include in a single article, however, we have outlined a list of some of his most generous and unexpected acts.
1. END SARS
Davido took part in the #EndSARS protest in Abuja. He didn’t only protest, he helped in securing the release of some of the protesters that had been arrested.
He took to his IG page to write “All protesters have been released.”
2. Covid19 Pandemic
During the pandemic, OBO released the music video of his song “D&G” which featured American singer Summer Walker. All the funds gotten from the music video was donated to a Covid19 research fund to expedite the development of vaccine for the virus.
It began as a joke, which later turned into a trend of kindness for the Nigerian superstar. This resulted in both his friends and colleagues in the industry sending him 1 million naira and more. We watched as his account balanced swelled to N200M.
Later, Davido announced that he’ll be giving out the money to orphanages across Nigeria. He did! He even added N50M from his own money.
On this note, we join the world to wish Davido, Happy Birthday! We wish him continues success.
