Award-winning singer, David ‘Davido’ Adeleke, who’s currently in Dubai, received Wema Bank officials from Lagos over his ₦100m challenge which raked in over ₦185m in two days.
The visit comes two days after the singer had announced via his verified Twitter account that the bank he opened the donation account with, Wema Bank, wanted to have a meeting with him.
Davido tweeted on Wednesday, “Wema wanna have a meeting.”
However, as the fundraiser got heated, the bank hopped on the trend and made a post online with the inscription, “Na bank wey Davido dey use we go dey use now.”
On Friday night, however, the singer’s lawyer, Bobo Ajudua, shared pictures of Davido and Wema Bank officials with the caption, “Wema Bank finally touch down from Lagos. Ent law life will have you doing meetings at the wildest hours.” (sic)
Reposting the post on his Instagram story, Davido said, “@wema_bank couldn’t wait”, revealing his location as United Arab Emirates.
The bank also reposted Ajudua and Davido’s post on their Instagram story.
