After Senator Ben-Murray Bruce praised Davido for his active participation and campaign for his uncle in the 2018 Osun state Governorship election, veteran actress Ireti Doyle have also recently joined the bandwagon of those showering the Afro-pop musician with praises and immense respect.
Davido, real name David Adeleke was an ever-present staunch supporter of his uncle Senator Ademola Adeleke during the political campaign. He even performed and toured the numerous local governments in the Southwestern state leaving his US tour behind.
His loyalty and agile participation have earned him respect from the veteran Nollywood actress, Ireti believed the political system in Nigeria would have been different if other celebrities got involved actively. According to her, she said:
“The way I see it, if a quarter of us got involved and pursued our political preferences with as much passion, single-mindedness, loyalty, doggedness and “we die here” fervour that @davidoofficial has displayed and sustained over the last several days, it’s safe to say that the last 2 decades probably wouldn’t have gone down the way they have and we probably wouldn’t be in the current socio-political situation we are in.
“It doesn’t matter how cerebral or articulate you are; backseat driving and armchair political analysis don’t change a thing.
“Everyone is analysing what A, B, C and D are doing, the real question is what are you doing? How are you getting involved? What is your political preference and how are you ensuring that you are effectively represented?
“Alas, classic Nigerians, you no go do, person wey gree do will be damned for doing… Na so!
“Davido has found his “why”. I am PVC ready currently on the lookout for my “why”. A candidate whose politics I agree with, who I feel I can trust.”
The Wedding party actress is overtly fascinated with his participation and she is calling out celebrities in Nigeria to become staunch mediators in the political system.
