Davido had initially posted a message on Twitter ostensibly to solicit funds to clear his Rolls Royce from the port.

In what started as a joke, donations poured in from several Nigerian celebrities including the likes of Mr. Eazi, Mayorkun, Perruzi, BB Naija’s Nengi, Teni, Kizz Daniel, Zlatan, Femi Otedola, Patornking, Ckay, Naira Marley, Tiwa Savage, Don Jazzy and many others.

Other donors are believed to be his numerous fans from across the world. The mode of the donation grabbed news headlines at home and across the world.

Meanwhile, on Twitter, where all the action went down, people posted reactions from the potency of star power to what Davido will likely do with the funds.
