Shyne Barrow, opposition leader of Belize’s house of representatives, presented the award on Saturday at the O2.

On stage at the 20,000-capacity concert arena, Barrow hailed Davido for extending his philanthropy to Belize.

In November 2021, Davido had taken to his Twitter handle to ask his followers and friends to send him money.

He had first stated that he was soliciting funds to facilitate the clearance of his Rolls Royce car at the ports.

With a target of N100 million initially set for the fundraiser, Davido would later amass up to N200 million.

In a surprise twist, he had revealed that he would add N50 million and donate the largesse to orphanage homes.

Davido has, over his 11-year music career, made a name for himself in the entertainment landscape.

He has pulled off international collaborations and achieved four critically acclaimed bodies of work.

Davido made headlines after he sold out his O2 concert, a feat that has become a hallmark of success for many.
