Nigerian singer, Davido has announced his intention to start a yearly scholarship for the less privileged as his billionaire father opens his private university.
Multi-award winning Nigerian singer, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has taken to his Instagram page to announce that his billionaire father, Chief Deji Adeleke, has finished building his private university, Adeleke University, in Ede, Osun state, and declared his intention to start a yearly school scholarship for the less privileged.
He captioned another photo, “I plan to send people to school every year,” Davido said and also revealed that the scholarship will be in his late mother’s name. “So many people deserve education.. Starting from this year I plan to start the Veronica Adeleke Education Scholarship program.”
“I’m starting from 4 students this year details will be released soon on how to apply. Do your part to make the world better, even if you start small…at least start”, the artiste said.
The singer, fondly called Omo Baba Olowo (OBO), has a history of granting education aid. Recall that he once promised to take a little boy out of street hawking business and pay for his education up until the university level.
“Every child deserves an education but it’s sad that, that is not the case in the world today but if we all do our part, the world would be a better place. God bless his soul. I am ready to give him education till he finishes university”, the artiste had announced on social media.
Davido, who recently graduated from Babcock University, has a strong educational background. His late mother, Dr Veronica Imade Adeleke, who died in 2003, was a lecturer at Babcock University, an institution where her husband has a substantial stake.
