Davido has received over N100 million in about three hours after asking his friends to send him N1 million each ahead of his birthday.
Ahead of his 29th birthday on Friday, November 19, the global music star opened a Wema Bank account and asked people to donate.
“If you know I’ve given you a hit song…send me money… una know una selves ooo,” he initially wrote on Instagram before adding his account details, “David Adeleke, Wema Bank Account Number: 0123044967.”
He further wrote “Omo 7m in 10 minutes keep goin!! I love y’all! aim na 100m I wan clear my Rolls Royce from port abeg.”
“I know say una love me but una love me like this. Omo nah like joke I start this thing oh, 26m.”
Less than 24 hours after his post, friends and fans started dropping money into the account, with over N80 million donated as at 05:24 pm on Wednesday.
The development has sent Nigeria’s social media agog, with tweeps and others commenting on Davido’s bold move and affirming that contrary to insinuations, Wema Bank was a youth-centric bank and not just for old people.
