1 wish to express my sincere gratitude to my friends. colleagues, fans, and the public for the generous expressions of love in recent days. In my usual playful manner, I requested a few days ago that my friends and colleagues send money in celebration of my birthday. The response and outcome exceeded my expectations, as I received about NGN 200,000,000.00in less than two days. 1 truly appreciate everyone who donated hard-earned funds and I am very thankful for your generosity.

I have always been passionate about giving back and helping people. In view of this, I am delighted to announce that all the funds received, totaling NON200,000,000.00, will be donated to orphanages across Nigeria as well as the Paroche foundation. In addition, I will be making a personal donation of NON 50,000,000.00, bringing the total amount to NGN 250,000,000.00.

Davido five-man Disbursement Committee

To oversee the distribution of funds to beneficiaries, I have established a five-person Disbursement Committee, Members of the committee include:

Mrs. Titi Adebayo- chairman of the committee.

Professor Jonathan Nwosu- secretary to the committee

Professor Yahana Joel Asabe of the Northern Nigeria Seventh Day Adventist Union Conference.

Pastor (Dr) Oyalabu of Spring Time Development

Foundation (SDF),

Professor Uloma Onuoha

The committee will compile a list of orphanages across Nigeria. They will determine the number of children and their needs at each orphanage, and then divide the funds accordingly. The committee will also determine the portion of the money that will be donated to Paroche foundation. To maintain transparency, the committee will make public the names of the beneficiary orphanages and how much each will receive. A list of all beneficiaries and their verified account details will be submitted to Wema Bank, who will then be instructed to credit each beneficiary’s account.
