I have done a lot of charity work, from day to day, helping people, making sure people are alright, from my friends to people I don’t even know”, he shared.

“It’s good to see the works that have been done over the years is appreciated. I wanna say it was a no brainer because after a while it was getting too much a said it’s not in my type of character to keep this money” Davido added.
