The rapper decided to ensure the little girl's future was secured by paying for her college education. According to the lawyer, Kodak instructed him saying:

As a result, Kodak donated Ghc 120,000 to the little girl’s college fund.
Police release statement
Following Kodak’s generous donation, the Fort Lauderdale police department expressed gratitude for the gesture.
"We are grateful to everyone who has donated to the family. The generosity by supporters has offered a degree of hope,” the statement read in part.
Kodak’s giving heart
In July, the rapper made headlines after donating air conditioners to poor Florida residents.
Kodak bought 100 A.C. units for around GhHc 65,000 and went door to door presenting them to area residents. His act of kindness brought some of the residents to tears.
Kodak previously received a pardon from Donald Trump because of his charity work.
He served half of his 46 months in prison for lying while applying for a firearm.
Throwing money into the ocean
In July, YEN.com.gh reported that Kodak caused a stir online when footage of him throwing around GHc 550,000 into the ocean emerged.
He also flushed GHc 5,000 down the toilet and pushed it down when it clogged the drainage.
Kodak Black's fans were concerned, and many believed he was lashing out over his feud with his protégé Jackboy.
