Read What Lagos Deputy Governor, Hamzat Said After Davido Donated N250m to Orphanages

Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Obafemi Hamzat, has commended singer David Adeleke (Davido) for his large heart after donating a sum of N250m to orphanages across Nigeria.

Davido had earlier asked his fans to donate N100m in a challenge he threw ahead of his 29th birthday.

However, the singer’s account raked in almost N200m.

He however added a sum of N50m of his own on Saturday and announced the donation to charity.

He has set up a five-man panel to oversee the disbursement of the funds.

Commenting through his social media page on Saturday, Hamzat said “Davido, Givers Never Lack. May your generations never lack good success Amin. 

Thank you and God bless.”

Quoting the scriptures, Hamzat made reference to the Holy Bible: Ist Chronicles 29, Proverb 22:9 and 19:17 and the Holy Quran: 9:71, 57:7 and 21:73” which all supported help for the less privileged.
