David Adeleke known as Davido would be known for other things apart from music and one of this is – politics. The “If” crooner has been in the political circle for sometime. From Osun State where he was with Adeleke to Abubakar Atiku! A move some people tag as “cool.”
Davido “drools” with a whole lot of sympathy for PDP unlike his south western region which is sympathetic to APC. Davido seems not to be going in that direction as it stands. Lately, he has been campaigning for the opposition party. Just recently, he has been busy with with Chioma and the visit to Atiku, the presidential hopeful is a pointer to this.
What some political pundits and juggernaut might call “game changer ” Atiku Abubakar has seen the political equation changing and this has gotten immense support from the Nigerians especially the youths. Paired with the former Anambra State governor, Peter Obi whom some people call “the good man”, Davido has seen the need for youths to engage in politics and this political awareness, he is taking to the altar of PDP altering the narrative of South West region known for staunch sympathy for APC.
Having campaigned rigorously and vigorously for his uncle , Senator Adeleke who is in PDP, though losing the election to the ruling APC! Folks would think that the musician would be done ! But just like a warrior he came back to campaign for PDP. With his visit to Atiku, this has shown that Davido pitches tenth with PDP.
Davido and Chioma presence in the political space has shown that Nigerian youths has the capacity to be part of the political discussion and with the not too young to run mantra making rounds in the political circles , the country would be witnessing a lot of young artistes endorsing one political candidate or the other.
