Singer David Adeleke popularly known as Davido has said that he got into trouble for supporting the #EndSARS protest against police brutality last year.
The 28-year-old made this known in an interview with South African TV host Trevor Noah while explaining how his hit song ‘Fem’ became an anthem for the protest.
” I did not record the song thinking the protest was going to happen, 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 shaken,” he said.
