The veteran singer aired his thoughts in a video clip shared on his Instagram page on Sunday 21 November 2021.

The video is coming a few days after Davido received a donation of ₦200 million from his friends to mark his 29th birthday.

The “Aye” singer added ₦50 Million to the donation and set up a committee to disburse the funds to selected orphanages across the nation.

This “act of kindness” did not sit down well with Baba Fryo who believes that the music star should have extended the same kindness to him when he needed help.

Earlier in September, the “Dem go dey pose” hitmaker had posted a Save our soul message on his Instagram page stating he was depressed.

“I’M HAVING A SERIOUS DEPRESSION,” he wrote at the time.

“There is something that I have been seeing on social media that someone gifted orphanages ₦250m. To me, the thing is funny. I remember when I was depressed, they tagged many of my colleagues; they tagged Davido, Tuface, and others but none of them responded. It was people that have never seen me in this life, people that do not know me that responded” he said in the new video.

This ₦200m that I am hearing about and seeing on social media is surprising to me. If 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; they are been given ₦250m, it is so funny.  I will advise Nigerians and Black people to be wise and stop all these things.

White people do not do all these things. All what we are doing will look so funny to them. I am not saying that giving money to orphanages is a bad thing because I am an ambassador to an NGO that I do not collect a dime from.

But funny enough, when I was depressed and had problems, the NGO did not respond. You see how we are. Now I am seeing ₦200m and they are posting it everywhere; Davido gives money to orphanages and inaugurates a five-man committee to distribute that money. Everything sounds funny to me.

If I see someone doing good, I appreciate them; I am not saying it is a bad thing. I just want to ask people why someone like me that people know, who cried out; why did they not help the person that they know?

“It is the people that they do not know or can see their faces that they are helping out with ₦250m. Let’s all think; will we call that wickedness or ignorance?.

I tagged the Delta, Rivers and Lagos State government, none of them came to my aid. Is that wickedness or ignorance? But today I am seeing that ₦250m is going to be distributed to orphanages all over Nigeria. I will advise Nigerians to open their eyes.”

Baba Fryo ruled the Nigerian music scene in the early 90s alongside the likes of Daddy Showkey, Mighty Mouse, Marvellous Benji, and Daddy Fresh.
