Davido neglected me in my time of need but donated N250m to orphanages — Baba Fryo
Veteran Singer, Baba Fryo claims Davido allegedly neglected him in his trying times but was selfless enough to donate N250m across orphanages in Nigeria.
Afrobeat star, Davido recently made the headlines for his selfless service and kind gesture towards orphans in the country. The singer set up an account for crowdfunding, Which garnered N201M. In addition to that, Davido added an extra N59M making it a total of N251M. He set up a five-man panel and asked that the whooping sum be disbursed to orphanages around Nigeria.
This triggered reactions among the public because they never expected him to be that generous. Amidst all the reactions, Baba Fryo stated that he was disappointed that the singer neglected him, ‘a known face’, in his trying times, only to gift unknown orphans N250m.
The ‘Dem Go Dey Pose’ singer narrated that he was once in a fix and he tagged many of his colleagues, including Davido, Tuface, and others but none of them responded. He said it was people that had no form of relationship with him that came to his rescue.
In a speech via his Instagram account, Baba Fryo stated;
“There is something that I have been seeing on social media that someone gifted orphanages N250m. To me, the thing is funny. I remember when I was depressed, they tagged many of my colleagues; they tagged Davido, Tuface, and others but none of them responded. It was people that have never seen me in this life, people that do not know me that responded.
This N200m that I am hearing about and seeing on social media is surprising to me. If someone like me who is popular and well known was not helped, it is people and orphanages that no one knows that is being helped; they are being given N250m, it is so funny. I will advise Nigerians and Black people to be wise and stop all these things.
White people do not do all these things. All that we are doing will look so funny to them. I am not saying that giving money to orphanages is a bad thing because I am an ambassador to an NGO that I do not collect a dime from. But funnily enough, when I was depressed and had problems, the NGO did not respond. Do you see how we are? Now, I am seeing N200m and they are posting it everywhere; Davido gives money to orphanages and inaugurates a five-man committee to distribute that money. Everything sounds funny to me.
If I see someone doing good, I appreciate them; I am not saying it is a bad thing. I just want to ask people why someone like me that people know, who cried out; why did they not help the person that they know? It is the people that they do not know or can see their faces that they are helping out with N250m. Let’s all think; will we call that wickedness or ignorance?
I tagged the Delta, Rivers, and Lagos State governments, none of them came to my aid. Is that wickedness or ignorance? But today, I am seeing that N250m is going to be distributed to orphanages all over Nigeria. I will advise Nigerians to open their eyes.”
