Stay out of politics, Akpabio advises Davido

Senate President Godswill Akpabio has advised renowned Afrobeat artist David Adeleke, also known as Davido, to steer clear of political involvement.

Akpabio shared this counsel during Davido’s courtesy visit in Abuja on the 20th of May, 2024.

Welcoming Davido, Akpabio expressed his pleasure and praised the singer for his contributions to making Nigeria proud.

“For me and for the government of President Bola Tinubu, it’s an inclusive administration, and you must have noticed in my various outings, that we move as one across party lines.

“Even though your administration is a PDP, one thing that is common to all of us is the interest of this country. And it is a country that has given you so much love.

“The country’s population is unmatched anywhere else in Africa, over 240 million Nigerians. So I urge you to remain a great Ambassador of our country. Continue to do your best in the entertainment industry and don’t allow anybody to drag you into politics.

“For us in the political arena, we value talents. We will do everything possible to support the entertainment industry and talented people like you. All we need is patience and prayers for us to succeed”, the Senate President stated.

The singer, however, informed the Senate President of the reason for his visit.

“As for me, I’m doing my part to assist society. I have a Foundation where I share N300 to N400 million to the orphanages yearly. And I have a new album coming out in June or July of this year. I just thank you for everything you have been doing for us”, he said.

The “feel crooner” was accompanied by two of his cousins: Tunji Adeleke, son of his late uncle Senator Isiaka Adeleke, and Folasade Adeleke, daughter of the Governor of Osun State.
