One of Nigeria’s biggest singers, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has received over N154million in less than 24 hours after asking his friends to send him N1m each ahead of his birthday.
Davido took to his verified Twitter account where he pasted his account details and asked his friends to donate N1m each ahead of his 29th birthday.
He wrote: “if you know I’ve given you a hit song, send me money… una know una selves ooo,”
Many took it to be a joke, not until the artist revealed that he had received N7m in 10 minutes after the request. He also mentioned that his aim is to reach a N100m, so he can clear his newly purchased Rolls Royce from the port.
