N250m donation: Davido turned his back against me when I was in need – Baba Fryo

Friday Igwe, popular Ghetto singer from Ajegunle, better known as Baba Fryo, has taken a swipe at Davido over his recent donation to orphanages.

Davido, who had solicited funds publicly, had raised N200 million within two days.

While giving an update on the money he received, Davido had announced that he would add N50 million to the money which would be donated among orphans across the country.

He had set up a five-man committee, comprising three professors, to determine how the money would be distributed.

But in an Instagram post on Sunday, Baba Fryo said he was disappointed that the musician gave out such money to those he does not know personally but didn’t assist him with a dime in his hour of need.

“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 been 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 what 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 funny enough, when I was depressed and had problems, the NGO did not respond. 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 government, 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.”
