Apart from birthing new songs and keeping fans entertained, there are other things we would gladly expect from our dear Nigerian musicians. Oh, a popular aphorism says, ‘to whom much is given, much is expected’, right?
Putting Nigeria’s current economic climate into consideration, any charitable gesture from Nigerian music acts and celebrities, in general, would be very much appreciated. It is an honourable thing for our dear celebs to do the little they can to reward or empower their loyal fans however they can.
Some celebrities would rather want to keep their good deeds clandestine, but how would we know they have a big heart if some of their acts of charity are not thrown out for media publicity. If you don’t blow your trumpet, who will?
Perhaps you want to know some of the most charitable Nigerian artistes on social media? There are few who through the years have come to the aid of fans and followers in one way or the other.
As a Nigerian, these are the celebrities you should follow on social media if you want awoof money to fall on you. If your favourite celeb does not make the list maybe he is not doing enough or there is little publicity about it.
Our top picks are:
- Don Jazzy @DONJAZZY
The Mavin Records boss has been a long-time philanthropist, especially on social media. The good deeds began with sharing of recharge cards on Twitter and subsequently giving out financial assistance to those with likely need. No wonder, Don Jazzy has been able to command a good number of social media following on his social media accounts. He is adjudged as the number one most philanthropic Nigerian celeb.
- Davido @iam_Davido
Besides being a verified serial hitmaker, Davido born David Adeleke has an open hand. Davido has exerted a lot of influence on the entertainment scene not just through his music but also from his often well publicized acts of charity. He has paid school fees and most recently built a new home for a young fan Utibe and his mother.
- MC Galaxy @mcgalaxymcg
It may disappoint you that your favourite artist is yet to be named on the list. Udeme Udofot who is better known as MC Galaxy surprisingly takes the number three spot. Since the dancer cum singer hit stardom, one memorable thing the artist does is giving out freebies via social media. The ‘MMM’ crooner has touched the hearts of his fans by engaging them with simple promo acts in return for some freebies and cash $$$.
- 2Baba @official2baba
The profile of the popularly recognized Nigerian music legend would be incomplete if charity was far-fetched. 2baba who has a foundation to his name has been involved in several charity initiatives. For the ‘African Queen’ crooner, it is not all about giving out money to some random followers on social media, his charity is more organized and well directed. He recently pledged to donate revenue from his song ‘Hold My Hand’ for a philanthropic course.
- Kcee @iam_kcee
Five Star Music general, Kcee has been delving into acts charity here and there. The ‘Limpopo’ master is one celeb that blesses his followers with freebies, like recharge cards, money and other means of empowerment. If you’re seeking any form of help from any Nigerian artiste, you should consider Kcee.
- Tekno @alhajitekno
TripleMG lead music act Tekno seems like a latecomer to the freebies jamboree, however, you rather be late than late. Ever since the ‘Pana’ crooner announced he would be giving out some cash to persons with credible request, his social media account (Twitter) has received an enormous boost in followership. Currently, the singer is doling out N5 million in tranches to his fans, the attention and feedback are both hilarious and alarming.
