Davido On His Birthday 1m Challenge

Multiple award-winning Nigerian artist, Davido revealed how he got the inspiration

Multiple award-winning Nigerian artist, Davido revealed how he got the inspiration behind his 1m Naira donation for his 29th birthday on the Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

Davido spoke to Trevor Noah on the Daily Show about how he was able to raise millions of Naira on his birthday after he discovered the 30BG crew was planning on buying him a wristwatch he wanted for his birthday, out of much respect for the philanthropist who has always been giving, but his manager spewed the wrist watch plans to him mistakenly.

The DMW boss talked about the decision-making of the money and how his dad influenced his decision to donate all the money to charity, the whole vetting process took two months, and over 292 orphanages benefitted from this act of kindness.

The Afrobeats genius is currently on the “We Rise by Lifting Others” tour which he started in New York City.
