Davido Finally Join Politics Fully

Davido finally reveals the BIG thing he plans to do with Atiku ahead 2019 Elections 


Nigerian super star pop singer, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, on Saturday met with the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.


Davido met with Atiku alongside his girlfriend, Chioma in his Abuja residence.The singer disclosed this on his Twitter page, hinting of big things to come.Alongside a picture with Atiku, he wrote; “Thank you for having us Sir.

“You all should be afraid of what I’m gonna do next.”

Recall that Davido performed at the PDP National Convention in Port Harcourt where Atiku emerged as the party’s presidential candidate.


Earlier in the week, the social media was agog with rumors of breakdown in the love relationship between Davido and Chioma, sequel to which the singer has been sharing photos of him and his girlfriend on various date outings.

Nigeria’s Davido gets on the political campaign trail

He’s the Nigerian star of Afropop, feted across Africa and the globe as a multi-millionaire singer-songwriter and record producer. But Davido – real name David Adedeji Adeleke – has recently been more focused on party politics and getting his uncle elected as governor of his home state of Osun this weekend.


Ademola Adeleke, dubbed “the dancing senator” because of his penchant for dancing in public, must be hoping his high-profile nephew can win him as many voters as he has music fans. The 58-year-old politician ran for the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against Gboyega Oyetola of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the last gubernatorial election in Osun state.


Candidates from no fewer than 48 parties are vying to replace APC Governor Rauf Aregbesola, who is stepping down after a maximum of two four-year terms. Osun state gubernatorial poll was the final major electoral test before Nigerians vote for a new president, parliament, governors and state legislatures in February and March next year.


Davido’s intervention is undoubtedly the highlight of a state election that is being seen as test of President Muhammadu Buhari’s popularity in Nigeria’s southwest.The region, which includes Lagos, the country’s megacity of 20 million people, is a key electoral prize for any presidential hopeful and major political parties.

Political dynasty

Davido, who has become a common sight on the campaign trail, last weekend took star billing at a rally in his hometown of Ede, performing some of his most popular tunes.The 25-year-old artist is currently carrying out his yearlong compulsory national service – a far cry from the glitz and glamour of his private jet and a recent Africa tour.


He was pictured singing and dancing for fans on top of PDP vehicles in a field, delighting local party members and a throng of supporters.Billboards in the state also show pictures of the singer in traditional dress, leaning on an empty black leather chair next to the Nigerian flag.


“I, Davido, support Senator Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke as governor of Osun State,” the roadside advertisements read. While he may be better known as one of Nigeria’s most successful musical exports, Davido also comes from a well-known political dynasty.


His grandfather, Raji Ayoola Adeleke,was a senator between 1979 and 1983 while another uncle, Isiaka Adeleke, was Osun’s first civilian governor from January 1992 to November 1993.The performer’s father, Adedeji Adeleke, is a wealthy businessman with interests in banking, property, education, shipping, haulage and oil and gas.


Regardless of whether Davido swings it for the PDP, Nigeria’s authorities are taking no chances over security to ensure Saturday’s vote goes smoothly.The last gubernatorial vote in the southwestern state of Ekiti in July led to widespread concerns about vote-buying by leading political parties.


The Nigeria Civil Society Situation Room coalition of civic groups said its monitors “observed widespread financial inducement and vote-buying in and around several of the polling units”.

The “brazenness” of the practice could undermine democracy, it added. The candidate of Buhari’s APC won the poll. Fear of political violence, which is never far from the surface in Nigeria, has also seen security reinforcements sent into Osun state.


Police said 40 000 officers, two helicopters, 30 armoured personnel carriers, 300 patrol vehicles and sniffer dogs have been deployed to ensure the poll is peaceful.Buhari, who is seeking a second term, has promised February’s election will be free, fair and safe.
