Contrary to reports that Nigerian pop star and DMW boss, Davido, cancelled his US tour due to scheduling conflicts with his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) commitments in Nigeria, NAIJAROKO has gathered that the pop star indeed cancelled his tour for Political rallies.
The Popstar earlier made the announcement, cancelling remaining dates of the ‘Locked up tour’ where he also apologised to his fans, promising to refund their tickets at the point of purchase.
But sources close to the popstar’s camp have told us that he decided to cancel the tour to go on the campaign trail for his uncle who is running for gubernatorial elections which comes up on on the 28 of September 2018.
Davido himself posted a video (which he has since deleted) declaring his support for his uncle, Senator Adeleke, urging his fans to vote for Senator Adeleke.
“I can assure you that we have all it takes to take Osun State to the next level. That’s my home state. I will love to see it develop. I will be supporting and performing at all the PDP rallies in Osun state. I will be supporting Senator Nuruden Ademola,” he said in the video.
“My fellow Osun brothers and sisters, as most of you may know, I am a native of Osun State. Let’s take Osun to a new level. All the youths and indigenes of the state, rise and do what is right for our state and the people. I will be present in all PDP rallies supporting Sen Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke, under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)!15th @ EDE.”
Senator Adeleke who is fondly described as ‘the dancing Senator’ is the father to Davido’s cousins – BRed and Sina Rambo, both of whom are also musicians.
