Davido says he is setting aside N20 million for 20 Nigerians with the best business ideas.


The Afropop star announced the giveaway in a tweet on Wednesday.

Davido, who is always vocal about the slogan “we rise by lifting others,” also said the beneficiaries would get the money on Friday.

The singer said the fund is his own way of lessening the hardship many Nigerians are currently going through.


Davido has been in the news several times for his random gestures of generosity.

The record label boss was recently named an outstanding global citizen of Belize for his philanthropic work.

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, the singer added N50 million to the fundraiser and donated 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.
