‘Exercise Not Credible’ – Davido Speaks On Outcome Of 2023 Election
Multiple award-winning Nigerian singer, David Adeleke, better known as Davido, has opined that the 2023 general election was credible and transparent.
The ‘Dami Duro’ crooner made this known n an interview with Beat 99.9FM, Lagos, on Friday during the premiere of his fifth studio album, ‘Timeless’.
Davido, who was off social media for a while after the death of his son, Ifeanyi, said he would have been very vocal about the elections if he was online.
The singer, however, said he was happy about the low turnout of voters, adding that the safety of voters was important.
He said, “I’m happy that people were not really coming out. You know if I was online, I would have been really vocal about it (the election). I have always been vocal about it. But, I mean, I was happy about it. That’s just being honest.”
“It’s what it is! But I personally don’t feel like that was really a credible election. Do you know what I’m saying? I feel like the most important thing is the safety of life of everybody. But in all, that wasn’t it. So, I don’t think I will be able to hide that. I can’t hide that.”
