David Adeleke, better known by his stage name Davido, explained why he took the stage at Alex Otti’s inauguration as governor of Abia State.
Recall that on Monday, following the inauguration of Alex Otti and his deputy, Ikechuckwu Emetu, a video of Davido’s performance in Umuahia, the capital of Abia State, appeared online.
Following Davido’s performance, many Nigerians made the assumption that the new governor might be a resource waster in light of the likely cost to invite the artist to the occasion.
Davido said in a tweet in response to the criticism that he received no payment for his performances.
“Not a penny. I’ve known Excellency (Alex Otti) my entire life, and I have no doubt that he would work hard for the Abia State residents.
