Davido receives millions in one hour, after asking fans for 100m naira

Nigerian artist Davido has shared a screengrab of his bank account on Twitter saying that fans have sent millions of naira an hour after he asked them to.

“If u know I’ve given you a hit song .. send me money,” Davido tweeted before he started sharing updates of how much had been sent.

He later tweeted that 7m naira ($16,000; £12,000) had been raised in just 10 minutes, and joked that his target was 100 million naira because he wanted to pay off a loan he had taken for his Rolls-Royce car.
