The popular Nigerian singer, David Adeleke popularly known by his stage name Davido, took to his Twitter account to prank his fans and associates, asking them to send him money for his forthcoming 29th birthday. Although, the singer was only trying to play pranks with his initial tweets in which he was requesting for donations, but it eventually became a serious matter with many popular Nigerians home and abroad sending money into the bank account he posted.
Davido started the whole thing at around 1pm on Wednesday afternoon, and he has gotten up to 114 million naira as at 7pm in the evening. Meanwhile, he later started calling on some fellow celebrities on Instagram, asking them to send their One million naira donations across to him.
Davido started by calling out the popular rapper, Olamide Baddo, followed by others. Meanwhile, the likes of Don Jazzy, Phyno, Nairamarley, Zlatan Ibile, Mayorkun, Eniola Badmus and some other celebrities have sent their own One million naira donations after Davido tagged them on his Instagram story.
However, there are two popular Nigerian celebrities who are also singers, but whom Davido neither called out nor tagged on his Instagram page during the course of his donations request.
Amongst the two popular celebrities that Davido didn’t call out during his shout-out session on IG yesterday was Wizkid. It is possible that this wasn’t an intentional act by Davido, however, the fact that the two singers have had to dealt with issues of rumoured beef between is not concealed.
2. Burna Boy
Another popular singer that Davido appeared to have shunned during his fund-raising activities yesterday was Burna Boy. Also, there has been series of reports concerning the alleged misunderstanding between Burna Boy and Davido.
We hope it is not that Davido intentional shunned his colleagues as that won’t be good enough for the Nigerian music industry.
