MUSIC: Davido On NDLEA Wanted List

The multiple award winner and Omo Baba Olowo (OBO) crooner, David Adedeji Adeleke aka Davido is presently in hot soup and many are hoping his father’s fame and wealth will be able to get him out of it. The Aye singer, Davido, is presently wanted by the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).His new musical video titled ‘Fans Mi’ which Davido took to Instagram last week to celebrate its hitting one million views on Youtube in 10 days has put him in trouble with the NDLEA.The music video is said to
feature scenes of Davido discussing with an unidentified man as they bargain over a briefcase of dollars and parcels of hard drugs. The song is supposed to promote the Omo Baba Olowo crooner’s gratitude and appreciation to his fans for their love and support for his career over the years. However, the singer was busy singing about his enemies and money, showcasing hard drugs, nudity and guns in the video. The video in which he featured Maybach Group artist, Meek Mill, also has a series of lewd scenes. In response to Sunday Telegraph’s mail, NDLEA’s head of public affairs, 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 and trafficking. Besides, it is counter-productive on the campaign against drug production, trafficking and abuse. The agency is also investigating the matter and will take necessary action,” he concluded. Also commenting on the music video is popular music video critic, Nuella O’Peters who voiced her concerns on the video saying: “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 a few weeks back  was alleged to have said the video of ‘Fans Mi’ is the most expensive video of his musical career. ‘Fans Mi’ is one of the songs on his sophomore album whose release date was postponed for an undisclosed reason.
