    David Adedeji Adeleke, better known by his stage name Davido, claims he got into problems during the #EndSARS protest after one of his albums, ‘A better time,’ became the movement’s song.

    In a recent appearance with Trevor Noah’s “The Daily Show,” David stated as much.

    Despite the fact that he did not write the music for that reason, the singer expressed his gratitude for his song being used to represent the people’s voice.

    He claimed he got himself into such much trouble that he had to leave the nation for a while.

    He said, “I did not record that song thinking that was going to happen but it’s amazing how I saw my voice being an instrument for people, it was amazing, I got into a lot of trouble, I had to actually leave the country.

    “It was that bad, but it was amazing to see people come out like that and I will say this, they listened, they heard us, they might not have changed anything but they were shocked. I see a lot of young future leaders coming out in the next general elections, things are going to change.”

    Many Nigerians flocked to the streets in October 2020 to protest police brutality as part of the #EndSARS campaign.

    The Nigerian Police Force’s Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) was disbanded as a result of the demands.

    Meanwhile, ahead of the larger album, the song “FEM” was published a few weeks before the protest began. It was, by chance, designated as the protest’s anthem.

    The words to “FEM” resonated across Nigeria as young Nigerians poured out into the streets to protest police brutality.

    A video of Babajide Sanwo-Olu attempting to address demonstrators outside the Lagos State Government House leaked online at the time.

    The youths were seen chanting “O boy you don dey talk too much” serving as proof of their dissatisfaction with his response to their demands.

      It shows that the government is no longer recognising section 39 of the 1999 constitution that talked about freedom of expression. what a pity.

      The Youths needed a voice to put an end to police brutality and you provided one. That what a sacrifice you made.

      Davido should have envisaged that his support during #Endsars protest will put him in trouble.
