Popular Nigerian musician, Davido, said #EndSARS protest that rocked the country in 2020 landed him in serious trouble
The protest, which rocked different states last year had one of Davido’s songs, Fem, as its anthem.
Davido disclosed he had to leave Nigeria, over his involvement in the #EndSARS protests of October 2020.
Davido made this known this while speaking on The Daily Show.
According to him, one of his songs ‘Fem’ became the anthem for the protests.
However, Davido insists he “did not record the song (Fem) thinking the protest was going to happen.”
He, however, admitted it was an “amazing” experience watching his voice become an “instrument” used to demand change.
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.”
Davido released Fem after a long social media break in response to his critics.
He also spoke about his first deal which he signed in the US in 2016.
He said when the company had doubts about how far his music would go, he told them, “You guys might not understand now, but in a couple of years, this is going to be one of the biggest genres in the world.”
