Nigerian musician Davido has offered to give a Ghanaian senior high school (SHS) graduate a full scholarship to pursue a university degree.
In a post on Twitter, he revealed that the student, Suleyman Morro, has been given a full scholarship at Adeleke University, with accommodation and allowance inclusive.
The singer’s father established the University to assist less privileged students in obtaining a quality higher education.
It is located in Ede, a town in the Osun State in Southwestern Nigeria.
Davido tweeted, “we have contacted Suleyman, who lives in Ghana, and he has been given a full 4/5 year scholarship to Adeleke university; accommodation and allowance included! God bless y’all (sic).”

This comes after one Nana Yaw sought help for Suleyman Morro, who attended Sunyani Senior High School, on Twitter.
On June 19, he shared the boy’s WASSCE results on his page and tagged popular broadcaster Nana Aba Anamoah. The student’s result showed he aced his exam, attaining A1s for all subjects.
“Happy Birthday, @thenanaaba God richly blesses you. I would want you to use this occasion to bless this brilliant boy with the numerous blessings God has been using you to bless people. He was the best student at Sunyani SHS in 2021, but due to financial constraints, he’s still at home,” Nana Yaw wrote.

In the early morning of June 22, Davido took a screenshot of the report and asked his Twitter followers to help him locate the young boy.
