A five-year-old boy has benefitted from Davido’s magnanimous inclination after going viral for singing ‘IF’, a hit song by the Afropop star.
The singer has supported the family of the boy, who’s known as Utibe, with financial assistance.
An Instagram user with the username ‘Sham Rock’ had a few days ago shared a video of the boy singing: “N30 million for my account oooh”.
According to Sham Rock, he took the video at a time when Utibe should have been in school.
Accompanying the video was a caption that read: “I went for presentation at q. I.
