US mayor has declared July 7th as Davido Day in his honour in the United States.

The Afrobeats musician, who is now on tour in support of his new album, played at the Toyota Centre in Houston, effectively shutting down the city.

Following the sold-out event, the 7th of July has been designated as ‘Davido’s Day’ in Houston. This was announced by the city’s mayor, who praised him for his important contributions to the music industry.

Wizkid, Davido’s adversary, also has a day dedicated to him in the United States.

In 2018, the governor of the United States announced October 6th to be Wizkid Day.

“The City of Houston commends Davido on his significant contributions to the music industry, and as signed by the Mayor of the city of Houston, every 7th of July is now ‘Davido Day’. ✍️ ❤️”

The Federal Government of Nigeria bestowed a national honour award to Davido last month.

Davido was named Officer of the Order of the Niger (OON) by the government.

Davido shared the news on his Instagram story, where he highlighted the names of those who had received the same honour as him.

The musician, who was touched by the honour, captioned the post “David Adeleke OON” and the Nigerian flag.

Ademola Adeleke, his uncle, praised him for making the Adeleke family proud and for being a wonderful ambassador for Osun State.

The University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital (UPTH) has faulted reports that musician Burna Boy covered all medical bills for patients during his recent visit to the hospital.

According to UPTH, Burna Boy only settled the bills of selected patients at the facility, contrary to claims of covering all outstanding bills.

Several blogs and news sites had reported earlier that Burna Boy paid the hospital bills for all patients at the hospital.

However, the institution’s spokesperson, Elabha Meni, clarified in a statement released in Port Harcourt on Friday that only selected patients received cash gifts or donations from Burna Boy.

Meni commended Burna Boy’s kindness in financially assisting select patients in the hospital, stating, “We commend Burna Boy’s kindness in financially assisting sick patients in our hospital to offset their bills during his visit on June 11.” She added, “His charitable act in helping those in need in society is laudable.”

Meni clarified that the hospital did not receive direct payments from Burna Boy or his team on behalf of patients to support this worthy course of reducing healthcare costs.
