Activist, Reno Omokri, has slammed veteran singer, Baba Fryo, over his comment on the N250 million afrobeat singer, Davido, pledged to the orphanage homes.
Baba Fryo had taken to his Instagram page to share a video where he expressed his disappointment with Davido for giving away the whooping sum of N250 million to orphans.
Baba Fryo noted in the video that people should be real. He stated that his disapproval of Davido’s kind gesture stemmed from the fact that he did not come to his aid when he was depressed and needed help.

Reacting to this, Reno Omokri tackled the singer for the sense of entitlement and foolishness in his words. He chided him for feeling entitled to a young man who could be his son, and for calling Davido’s gesture ‘unreal’.
“Honestly, I can’t believe the entitlement mentality that Baba Fryo displayed. How can you condemn Davido’s ₦250 million donation to orphanages because “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”?
You say you are popular. Use your popularity to help yourself, and allow the young man help orphans who have no popularity to capitalise on. Scripture says “It is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is young”-Lamentations 3:27. What did Fryo do for others when he was on top? No. Wrong question. What did he even do for himself when he was young?
Has he shown initiative? Did he even publish his account number, like Davido did, and people refused to donate? Other celebrities saw Davido’s action, and instead of complaining, they emulated him, published their account numbers and got love from their fans. Including two twins who just reunited.
Wow! I have never seen such entitlement in my life. Help me because I am popular? Really? Davido is young enough to be Fryo’s son. There is no better advert for the proverb that wisdom does not come with age than the case of Fryo and Davido. Use your youth well so you don’t end up like…”
