Nigerian star, Davido donates proceeds of ‘Dolce & Gabanna’ video to COVID-19 research
Nigerian music superstar, Davido, has released the video to his hit ‘Dolce & Gabanna’ song and is donating the proceeds to research into COVID-19, following his fiancée, Chioma’s experience with the pandemic.
Davido (David Adedeji Adeleke) not only released his new music video, “Dolce & Gabbana,” on Friday, but also announced that all the proceeds from the video will go to support the fashion house’s Dolce & Gabbana and Humanitas Together for Coronavirus Research fund.
The video features Summer Walker. For Davido, this has been personal ever since his fiancée, Chioma, tested positive for the virus.
Talking about the donation to CNN, Davido said: “I was on tour; she was in London with my son. When we all came back to Nigeria, we were like, because we have travel history, I think it’s best we get tested.
“We had no symptoms. Nobody in the house had symptoms. Out of all 34 of us that got tested, she was the only one that came out positive, which was crazy to us.”
She has since recovered and he says she never exhibited any symptoms
Davido also said Nigeria has been hit hard by the virus, which was why his family donated $1.3 million to the Federal Government in Nigeria and also distributed over 6,000 bags of rice across the Osun State.
“People are really going through a hard time,” he continued. “This is the first time something like this has paused the whole world.
“A lot of people out here make money from day to day, like, surviving day to day pay. That’s not possible because we all have to stay inside.”
Checks on Youtube on Saturday, showed that the two minutes 53 seconds ‘Dolce & Gabanna’ video, uploaded on Friday April 24, 2020, already had 554,093 views.
