Davido Doesn’t Hold Celebs Accountable For Being Neutral During Elections
Many celebrities received criticism for their silence during the 2023 General Elections.
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
David Adeleke, better known by his stage name Davido, is an Afrobeats phenomenon who has lately disclosed his political preferences in light of the recently completed 2023 presidential election.
Several Nigerian celebrities came under fire during the election for remaining silent over their preference for the presidency. Davido supposedly fulfilled his civic duty by voting, but he never made it clear who he was backing.
He was recently asked by a journalist on Channel 4 News whose candidate he supported in the election. The Afrobeat artist positioned himself as a leader in responding to the query. I’m a leader myself, I said in response to the journalist.
He discussed how difficult the election season had been for Nigerians. He expressed gratitude for the response to his recently released fourth studio album, “Timeless,” despite the fact that it had been released at a time when many people weren’t interested in the political process.
“The elections were tough. It was a tough period for Nigerians. I’m happy that I dropped the album and it was accepted. I know people are still going through a lot in the country, and everybody knows that even in the past I have been vocal about politics.”
Davido made it clear that he would not condemn anyone for their choice when asked how he felt about other musicians who chose not to support any candidate during the elections.
He added, “I don’t blame. Some people have families and children. Do you understand? Some people are built for it, some people are not, and I can’t blame anybody. I’m sure everybody has their own views, you know? And if you don’t want to talk about it, it’s obvious where you stand.”
