Davido has revealed how he got into trouble and had to flee Nigeria for supporting the #EndSARS campaign.
The singer, whose song ‘FEM’ was used as an anthem by End SARS protesters during the nationwide protests in 2020, disclosed on Wednesday, September 29, during a chat on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.
According to him, he “did not record the song (Fem) thinking the protest was going to happen.”
Davido further added that it was “interesting” experiencing the excitement that his voice is used as an “instrument” used to request for change but he said it landed him into a big problem.
He told Trevor Noah: “I got into a lot of trouble. I had to actually flee the nation entirely and It was that dire.
“I was reposting everything that had to do with the campaign. It was amazing to see people come out like that.”
“And I will say this: they listened to us. They heard us. They might not have changed anything but they were shook.”
