Senate President Godswill Akpabio has urged renowned Afrobeat singer Davido to steer clear of politics. Akpabio offered this advice during Davido’s courtesy visit to Abuja on Monday.

Expressing his delight, Akpabio commended Davido for making Nigeria proud. “For me and for the government of President Bola Tinubu, it’s an inclusive administration, and you must have noticed in my various outings that we move as one across party lines,” Akpabio said. “Even though your administration is a PDP, one thing that is common to all of us is the interest of this country. And it is a country that has given you so much love.”

Highlighting Nigeria’s significant population of over 240 million, Akpabio urged Davido to remain a great ambassador for the country. “Continue to do your best in the entertainment industry and don’t allow anybody to drag you into politics. For us in the political arena, we value talents. We will do everything possible to support the entertainment industry and talented people like you. All we need is patience and prayers for us to succeed,” Akpabio added.

Davido, in turn, shared the purpose of his visit. “As for me, I’m doing my part to assist society. I have a Foundation where I share N300 to N400 million to orphanages yearly. I have a new album coming out in June or July of this year. I just thank you for everything you have been doing for us,” the singer stated.

Davido was accompanied by his cousins, Tunji Adeleke, son of the late senator Isiaka Adeleke, and Folasade Adeleke, daughter of the Osun State Governor.
