BRITISH-based Nigerian clergywoman Prophetess Mary Dasmola has described the recent display of selflessness by musician David Adeleke popularly known as Davido as an act that was influenced by the Holy Spirit.
Last week, Davido acted in a very philanthropic manner when he donated N250m ($608,237) to orphanage homes across the country. Davido had asked his friends and fans to donate N1m each to him for his birthday and although the goal was to get N100m, the singer received over N53m in cash transfers in less than one hour.
Within three days, the singer received over N200m as gifts from his friends, so adding N50m of his personal money, Davido decided to give back to society by donating N250m to orphanages across Nigeria. He also set up a five-man committee to monitor the progress of the disbursement of the funds.
Prophetess Dasmola said: “Davido has shown the world his near perfect selflessness. Not too many has 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. 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.
Prophetess Dasmola, who is the founder Rock of Salvation Apostolic Ministry, also charged leaders in every field including her colleague in the faith-based family to lead by example and let members emulate from their personal act of generosity. She added: “This is a wakeup call for every leader even those in the ministry to take charge and be all-inclusive in the act of giving.”
