Davido’s orphanage fund receives 1,234 applications
Award-winning singer, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has revealed that his N250m orphanage fund received over 1,234 applications.
The singer took to his Instagram stories to give updates on the selection and disbursement processes of the N250 million funds.
The application, which was open to only registered orphanages in Nigeria, lasted for three days.
He wrote: “Verification is ongoing, and the report will be out by 15th December. Selection and disbursement 18th/19th and the press release should be by 20th December.”
He added: “1,234 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 N250million to orphanages across Nigeria.
He also set up a five-member committee to monitor the progress of the disbursement of the fund.
