Lesson from Davido's 100M Request

Davido rakes in over N70million in donations from fans, friends

Award-winning Nigerian singer, David Adeleke also known as Davido has received more than 70 million naira from his friends, colleagues and fans on social media.

The singer had jokingly solicited for funds on his social media pages, saying that anyone who has listened to his hit song should send him cash, after which he posted his account details online.

”If u know I’ve given you a hit song .. send me money …. una know una selves oo”, the DMW boss tweeted.

Moments later, he started giving updates and revealed that the targeted amount he is expecting is N100m which he intends to use to clear his Rolls Royce from the port.

Davido wrote; ”Omo 7 m in 10 minutes keep goin!! I love y’all! AIM NAH 100m I wan clear my rolls Royce from port”

Omo 7 m in 10 minutes keep goin!! I love y'all!

About an hour later, the music star announced that he received about N26M from his fans.

“Omo nah like joke I start this thing oo 26m,” he tweeted.

😂 26m

At the time of publishing, the music star had raised N74M.

Some donors sent as little as N200, some N1million. Even his bank sent him N1million.

This is not my usual kind of post but I think there is a lesson for us to learn from it as believers in the Lord.

Some called it rubbish especially when an update of those who sent him money was made this morning, pictures below to show 

People, especially Christians have been reacting to the post as rubbish, nonsense, etc which on a normal day I will do same but somehow I felt there is a lesson for us to learn. There is a lesson for us to learn from this as children of God. If unbelievers can do this for one of them within 24hours then we should do more for a brother in need within 12 hours.

How many of us (believers) will do this within 24hours for a brother that is genuinely in need? We will ask questions upon questions and even try to make the brother look like a beggar. The Lord in Luke 16:8b said, for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light. Though the wiseness of the world is foolishness before God but I believe the Lord made this statement for us to be guided.

Yes, we will give account of our life on earth, I don't jealous the people of the world and their passing wealth but Christianity will be better if we can support ourselves in times of need. If we can rise up for ourselves like this! We have so many gifted and talented young people among us who have chosen not to compromise their stand in Christ, have rejected offers from the world expecting that believers will rise up to help and their hope is almost been dashed.

Davido needed money for party, birthday party and to clear Rolls Royce, something that is entirely selfish, wouldn't add anything to community development and be used to assist the less privileged yet he got 150Million naira in just a day. 

A Christian brother or sister that the church helped to stand will always remember the church as he or she hits stardom and will do everything as to God knowing God used his/her own brethren. 

I can't tell the story of my graduation anywhere anyday without mentioning my church and some specific brethren that rose up to see that money wouldn't be a challenge to my graduation. That is what am talking about here.
