David Adeleke, best known as Davido made headlines few months ago when he decided to participate in the one-year mandatory National Youth Service Corp, NYSC. However the superstar has come under fire as his service has been cancelled by NYSC officials.
Davido graduated from the department of Music in Babcock University in 2016, the singer decided to postpone his participation for the national program till 2018 and he was posted to Lagos.
The singer performed at the orientation camp and even dished out advice to his fellow Corp members at the camp. Nonetheless, since he departed the camp during the opening week, the ‘Assurance’ hit maker has ‘absconded’ from any affiliation with the NYSC initiative.
Top sources in the NYSC who spoke to a Punch correspondent, disclosed that management of NYSC cancelled Davido’s service year for “absconding” from the camp during the orientation camp and this reportedly brought to an end his participation in the 2018 Batch ‘B’ Stream II in Lagos State, where he had been posted.
According to the source, he said:
“The NYSC was constrained to “dekit” Davido for violating the rules guiding conduct and activities in the camp. As a matter of fact, he absconded because he was away from the camp without permission. That prompted the Corps to issue him a query which was sent from Abuja. So, he is no longer a serving corps member.”
Furthermore, the superstar musician violated numerous NYSC rules and guidelines. He brought his car to the orientation camp, he engaged in partisan politics, participated in private practices and reporting late for official duties. However, he may be mobilized.
