Award-wining Nigerian Afro singer, David Adeleke, otherwise known by many as Davido, has revealed on Saturday revealed that his ₦250m birthday donations orphanage fund received over 1,234 applications since after announcing that the application is now live and listed the simple procedures on how to apply at the beginning of December.
Davido made this revelation via a post he made on his Instagram stories where he also listed the criteria for selection and disbursement processes of the N250m fund. The application, which was open to only registered orphanages in Nigeria, lasted for three days.
“Verification is ongoing, and the report will be out by 15th December. Selection and disbursement 18th/19th and the press release should by 20th December – he wrote.
“1234 responded; 852 without orphanage names; 382 with orphanage names. “The national association of orphanages in Nigeria sent the list of orphanage homes within their coverage, which to some extent, is helping us in the verification process. God bless. We rise by lifting others.”
As part of his birthday celebration last month, the singer decided to give back to society by donating N250m to orphanages across Nigeria. He also set up a five-man committee to monitor the progress of the disbursement of the fund.
