Utibe was the young boy who arrested Davido’s attention when he was featured singing the musician’s hit song, ‘If.’


Utibe had been out of school and only passed the time miming songs.

A concerned neighbour had taken a liking to the boy, and uploaded him singing the musician’s song on the Instagram.

Davido became interested, and upon learning that the young boy was unable to enrol in school for lack of money, he offered to sponsor him to the highest level of education the boy might wish to attain.

The news of Utibe’s video performance also came with the revelation that the boy’s mother, a single mom of four, is physically challenged and lived in a make-shift ‘house’ with her children.

Now, Davido has commenced the building of a decent accommodation for the woman and her children.

The musician’s action has earned him praises and prayers from Nigerians.
