We are investigating him, says agency
Multiple award winner and international act, Davido, is in trouble
with the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency over his new song/
video titled ‘Fans mi.’
NDLEA is currentlyinvestigating Davido (real name DavidAdeleke) for
showcasing hard drugs in the video featuring Maybach Group
artist,Meek Mill. In the video, which has gone viral since it was released
earlier this month, Davido is seen discussing with an unidentified man as
they haggle over a briefcase of dollars and a bag full of parcels of hard
drugs. There are also lewd scenes in the video.
The song is supposed to promote the Omo Baba Olowo crooner’s
gratitude and appreciation to his fans for their love and support towards
his career over the years.
However, the singer was busy singing about his enemies and money,
showcasing hard drugs, Unclothedness and guns in the video.
Some fans have expressed dissatisfaction over the song/video, claiming
the talented singer should have done better by showing pictures of his
fans, his past shows and encounters with fans, rather than the display of
hard drugs, Unclothedness and guns. In an emailed comment to Sunday
Telegraph, NDLEA’s Head of Public Affairs, Mr. Mitchell Ofoyeju, said,
“The agency considers the musical video ‘Fans Mi’ inappropriate and
indecent. It has the tendency to negatively influence and induce drug use
Besides, it is counter-productive on the campaign against drug
production, trafficking and abuse. The agency is investigating the matter
and will take necessary action.” Also speaking, popular music video
critics, Mrs. Nuella O’Peters, said, “It’s really outrageous seeing a brand
ambassador and a mentor to millions of African youths indulging in such
acts. He even went as far as using the substance for cooking in the video.
Can you imagine! It’s uncalled for.
I do hope the Nigeria Broadcasting Corporation will do something about
the video.” Davido is a song writer, performer and a recording artiste
from Nigeria. He recently postponed the release of his highly anticipated
album on his birthday.
