Davido is on the road to raising N200 million online from friends, fans and musicians he has recorded songs with ahead of his 28th birthday.
In less than 24 hours, the Nigerian musician had raised over N140 million with more pouring into his bank account.
With what started as a joke in a viral video posted on his Instagram page, Davido dared almost all his friends and loved ones, even from Ghana, to show him an act of generosity.
Davido said, “We rise by lifting others abi? Me I don dey rise dey lifting others for the past 100 years. So I want to know who my friends are. All of my friends one one million Naira. They said we are 30BG. If you don’t send your own. You out of here. You are gone (sic).”
He received money from Femi Otedola, Obi Cubana, and other celebrities, including BB Naija’s Nengi, Perruzi, Teni, Adekunle Gold, Medikal, Mr Eazi, Zlatan, Cubana Chief Priest and Chike, to mention a few.
Nigerian actor turned blogger Uche Maduagwu has revealed that Davido is actually bankrupt and posting online was a smart way of begging for money.
He posited that Davido did not want to come out as a broke celebrity begging for help from his fans so he’s cunningly tasked his friends and fans to a challenge.
Uche Madwuagu swore that he can prove Davido is broke due to his extravagant lifestyle. He also hinted that the musician’s billionaire father has stopped giving him money because he did not marry Chioma, his baby mama.
In his words, “Walahi OBO don finally broke… Baba dey use style beg money on IG, Chioma head don catch u since your papa don stop Awoof give away after u no marry her”
Meanwhile musicial twins brothers, Psquare, who just got back together have also shared on their page bank details and tasked their fans to also send them money just as how they did for Davido.
