Only a few would choose to celebrate a birthday just the same way as  Davido did on his 29th birthday. Davido teased his loyal pals to send a million naira each to his bank account. According to him, anyone who would not send the money did not qualify to be associated with him.

Many people questioned his motivations for requesting for the money, but the response to his appeal was overwhelmingly positive. For four days, Davido's plea was trending , with the singer providing regular updates for transparency. In total, the singer was able to raise N200 million and he personally added N50 million to that donation. Just like his name Adedeji means king, he wore the crown.

Taking to his social media, Davido thanked his friends and fans for standing by him to celebrate his birthday in this unique way, vowing to distribute the donations to orphanages in Nigeria. Although he had earlier stated that he would use the money to clear his new Rolls Royce automobile at the port, some people have raised concerns on the same giving different suggestions on how he would use the money.

In a letter, the Eselu in the Yewa-North Local government area of the Ogun state through its monarch Oba Akintunde Akinyemi had requested the singer to use the donated funds to start a campaign that seeks to ensure no children in the Southwest states are out of school. However, the singer through his Instagram account shared a letter that constituted a five member committee who would ensure smooth disbursement of the donations to orphanages in Nigeria. Davido expressed his joy and  gratitude to all who supported his idea and those who donated to his birthday.

 "I wish to express my sincere gratitude to my friends, colleagues, fans, and the public for the generous expressions of love in recent days. In my usual playful manner, I requested a few days ago that my friends and colleagues send money in celebration of my birthday. The response and outcome exceeded my expectations, as I received $487,000 USD in less than two days. I truly appreciate everyone who donated hard-earned funds and I am very thankful for your generosity.  I have always been passionate about giving back and helping people. In view of this, I am delighted to announce that all the funds received, totaling $487,000 USD, will be donated to orphanages across Nigeria as well as the Paroche Foundation. In addition, I will be making a personal donation of $113,000 USD, bringing the total amount to $600,000 USD."

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands one for helping yourself, the other for helping others and this is exactly what Davido is up to.  In the past, this star donated profits made from his hit single video with Summer Walker towards research for the covid-19 virus and also donated N15, 000,000 to an employee of Murtala Mohammad International Airport who needed help in clearing medical bill.
