Nigerian international singer and owner of DMW record label David Davido Adeleke in a recent statement, has revealed the aftermath of his involvement in the End SARS protest that took place in the country in 2020.
Davido, in a chat with South African media personnel Trevor Noah on Wednesday, September 29, on The Daily Show, opened up on the impact his song FEM, which was released before the protest had during the protest.
The DMW boss stated he “did not record the song (Fem) thinking the protest was going to happen.”
He, however, stressed that it was an “amazing” experience watching his voice become an “instrument” used to request for change, but he said it got him into a lot of trouble.
He told Trevor Noah: “I got into a lot of trouble. I had to actually leave the country. It was that bad.
“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.”
Recall that FEM by Davido was released after he took a long break from social media and was a response to his critics; it, however, turned to be the biggest song during the End SARS protest in 2020.
