A United Kingdom-based, Nigerian Prophetess, Mary Olubori Dasmola, has revealed why popular musician, Davido donated over two hundred and fifty million Naira to orphanage homes across Nigerian states.
The Nigerian international music star recently extended his philanthropic act towards orphans with the millions of Naira he had received from friends and loved ones for his 29th birthday.
After receiving N20 million from fans and friends, Davido added his own N50 million and donated the N250 million to orphanages.
Davido’s act of love was commended by many Nigerians on and off social media platforms.
In a statement she issued Wednesday, November 24, Prophetess Dasmola said the musician’s display of selflessness was influenced by the Holy Spirit.
The female cleric’s statement reads partly:“Davido has shown the world his near-perfect selflessness. Not too many have the capability and willingness to do such even with the abundant resources in their closet.
“Truly, this is an act orchestrated by the holy spirit to bless his people and he will surely have his reward”,the statement reads.
She admonished leaders in every field including her colleagues in the faith-based family to adopt the act of giving.
She stressed that the leaders should lead by example and let their followers emulate their personal act of generosity.
Prophetess Dasmola’s statement continued:“Since time immemorial, the act of giving to others freely without the expectation of getting anything in return has been considered a virtue and a noble trait.
“Generosity isn’t something just limited to giving money but even giving attention, energy and love are considered to be aspects of it also.
“As believers, we were taught in the bible to replete with teaching on the subject of giving.
“Paul called giving ‘grace’ in his Second Corinthian Epistle and to motivate them in their giving, he mentioned the greatest act ever of giving: ‘For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes, he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich’ (2 Cor. 8: 9).
“This is a wake-up call for every leader even those in the ministry to take charge and be all-inclusive in the act of giving”,she added.
