Davido has disclosed that he got into trouble with the Nigerian government during the #EndSARS protest in 2020.
Davido disclosed this when he appeared on Trevor Noah’s ‘The Daily Show’.
Noah asked Davido how his song ‘Fem’ became popular among protesters even though the song wasn’t recorded for the protest.
“I did not record that song thinking that was going to happen. Honestly, it is amazing how I saw my voice be an instrument for the people. It was amazing…I got into a lot of trouble; I got into a lot of trouble. I had to actually leave the country. It was that bad because I got into a lot of trouble,” he said.
“It was amazing to see people come out like that. I’ll tell you this, they listened, they heard us. They might have changed nothing but they were shocked.”
