Former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, says Davido is wiser than those who gave him money.
Omokri made the statement in reaction to the singer’s donation of N250m to orphanages across Nigeria, following contribution from friends and fans of over N200m for his birthday.
Davido had on Wednesday asked his friends and fans to donate N1m each to him for his birthday.
Though he added that the goal was to get N100m, the singer received over N53m in cash transfers in less than one hour.
Following the successful contribution, the singer has decided to give back to society and has also set up a committee to monitor the progress.
Reacting to this, Reno took to his Facebook page, saying, “Davido is much wiser than all those who gave him money for his birthday.
“He understands the spiritual realm and the ways of God. He has secured a soft spot in the Heart of the Creator, by virtue of James 1:27. I commend him.
“What a heart of Gold. What a man to watch for the future. Could his life trajectory be like Ronald Reagan’s? Those who gave to him are a different issue entirely. They should read Proverbs 22:16.”
He continued, “To show you how vain human nature is, very few people will donate ₦1 million to orphanages, who really need the money.
“But they will fall over themselves to donate ₦1 million to Davido, who doesn’t need the money. Davido understood that. And did what he did.
“If he had asked them to donate to orphanages, you wouldn’t see the deluge of Naira rain you saw.
“Davido showed a deep understanding of human nature. I personally believe that this was his intention all along. And I love how he added ₦50 million of his own money.
“That will show those who said that he was doing this because he is broke that they are the ones who are broke, both morally and financially. Bravo David Adeleke. Bravo!”
