Nigerian singer David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has declared his uncle, Senator Ademola Adeleke, winner of the Osun State governorship election.
Davido, who performed alongside all artistes under his record label in the early hours of Monday, stated this at the closing ceremony of Felabration 2018, which was themed ‘Overtaking Overtake’.
The singer had difficulties gaining entrance into the backstage, as the crowd waiting to catch a glimpse of him blocked his path.
Afterwards, he was ushered onto the stage by his protege, Mayourkun. He, however, stopped midway into his performance to announce his uncle the winner of the election.
“I want to give a shout-out to His Excellency, Governor Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke, the Governor of Osun State,” he said.
Felabration 2018 came to an end on Monday morning.
The week-long annual event is organised in celebration of Nigeria’s Afrobeat maestro, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
