What began as a joke has now won Davido, a well-known Nigerian musician, a huge sum of N187,000,000.
On Wednesday, Davido took to social media to ask his genuine friends and fans to send him N1 million each in advance of his birthday on Friday.
“We rise by lifting others abi?” Davido said. For the past 100 years, I have not been rising or lifting others. As a result, I’d like to know who my buddies are. Every one of my pals has a million Naira. We’re 30BG, they said. If you don’t send your own, you’ll be charged. You’re not welcome here. “You’ve left (sic).”
