This is not time the music star is extending such act of kindness. In 2015, he had promised to sponsor the education of a little street beggar simply identified as Abubakar.
It is believed that the young music start believes so much in education. The singer, fondly called Omo Baba Olowo (OBO), has a history of granting education aid.
In 2016, he announced his intention to start a yearly scholarship for the less privileged.
I plan to send people to school every year”, said Davido, who also revealed that the scholarship will be in his late mother’s name.
“So many people deserve education.. Starting from this year I plan to start the Veronica Adeleke Education Scholarship program.”
“I’m starting from 4 students this year details will be released soon on how to apply. Do your part to make the world better, even if you start small… at least start”, the artiste said.
Davido, who recently graduated from Babcock University, has a strong educational background.
His late mother, Dr Veronica Imade Adeleke, who died in 2003, was a lecturer at Babcock University, an institution where her husband has a substantial stake.
Davido’s father, Deji Adeleke is also the pro-chancellor of privately owned Adeleke University, in Ede, Osun state.
