Social critic, Reno Omokri, has expressed disbelief over Baba Frayo’s criticism of Davido for donating the sum of N250 million to orphanage homes across Nigeria.
Recall that Davido had raised the sum of N200 million from his fans and colleagues when he called on them to donate a million naira each to help clear his imported Rolls Royce car.
He later added N50 million from his own money and donated same to charity for distribution to orphanage homes across the country.
Following the donation, Baba Fryo took to his Instagram account and criticised Davido for donating such a huge money to orphanages after he refused to help him when he was in need.
But, in a post on his Instagram page, Omokri said: “Honestly, I can’t believe the entitlement mentality that Baba Fryo displayed.
“How can you condemn Davido’s ₦250 million donation to orphanages because “someone like me who is popular and well-known was not helped, it is people and orphanages that no one knows that is being helped”?
“You say you are popular. Use your popularity to help yourself, and allow the young man help orphans who have no popularity to capitalise on.
“Scripture says “It is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is young”-Lamentations 3:27. What did Fryo do for others when he was on top? No. Wrong question. What did he even do for himself when he was young?
“Has he shown initiative? Did he even publish his account number, like Davido did, and people refused to donate? Other celebrities saw Davido’s action, and instead of complaining, they emulated him, published their account numbers and got love from their fans. Including two twins who just reunited.
“Wow! I have never seen such entitlement in my life. Help me because I am popular? Really? Davido is young enough to be Fryo’s son. There is no better advert for the proverb that wisdom does not come with age than the case of Fryo and Davido. Use your youth well so you don’t end up like…”
