The Journalists International Forum For Migration (JIFORM) has appealed to Star musician David Adedeji Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, to consider an orphanage, Home for The Needy at Uhogua, Benin Edo State among priorities for the N250 million donation he doled out to support the needy on his birthday.
Ajibola Abayomi, the JIFORM President in a statement congratulated the “Fem” crooner on his 29th birthday and commended the Nigerian-American singer, songwriter, and record producer for giving back to society.
Davido took the nation by storm after raising N200 million from his associates for personal needs via social media and eventually added N50 million and donated all to the orphanage homes in the country.
“We are not just asking for support for the centre, we are equally asking Davido and his team to embark on a fact-finding mission to the place where over 4500 children and widows who lost their husbands to Boko Haram onslaught are taking refuge.
“Opportunity like this should get to the real needy and we are trusting that Davido’s good intention would translate into giving succour to the poor. Certainly, this show of love will make the motherless, fatherless and the less privileged smile forever.
“For us, each time we remember the physiological trauma of the victims of forced migration at the Home For the Needy, one is always inspired to mobilize support because these kids are in pains without adequate food to eat, 97 of them have gained admission to universities and the centre is challenged to meet the need.
“JIFORM is fired up to channel our energy to raise funds with other international bodies in Europe, Africa and other continents from 2022 for the less privileged, especially victims at the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp. We consider Davido as a man after God’s heart” the JIFORM President said.
