I Got Into Trouble, Left Nigeria For Supporting #EndSARS Campaign – Davido
‘Fem’ crooner Davido has disclosed how he got into trouble and left the country for supporting the #EndSARS campaign.
The DMW boss disclosed this on Wednesday while speaking of how ‘Fem’ became an anthem for the #EndSARS protest during a chat on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.
He stated he “did not record the song (Fem) thinking the protest was going to happen.”
Relishing the experience, he said he found his voice serving as an instrument for the people amazing.
Narrating the downsides that came with his support, Davido said: “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.
