Filthy-rich Nigerian Afrobeats star Davido, real name David Adedeji Adeleke, has announced plans to donate 300m Naira ($197,000) to orphanages in his country.

Davido posted Tuesday on X that he was donating the amount through his foundation.

“I and my foundation pledge the sum of 300 million Naira to orphanages around Nigeria…as my yearly contribution to the nation…details of disbursement tomorrow,” Davido said.

Davido has in recent years found favour with fans for philanthropic efforts.

In 2021, he ended up collecting 200m naira from his friends and fans after he shared a series of posts on X, then Twitter, asking people to send him money so he could clear his Rolls Royce from the port.

Davido then topped up 50m naira of his own, and donated the total 250m naira to various orphanages in Nigeria.

He went on to create the David Adeleke Foundation the following year.

Since then, Davido and his foundation has donated money to orphanages in Nigeria annually.

Several Nigerians online have commended him for his pledge.
