Mr. Adeleke is vying to be governor of Osun State under the Peoples Democratic Party. The senator representing Osun west defeated Akin Ogunbiyi in the PDP primary to clinch the ticket.
Davido, 22, alongside his record label mates have been in Osun State in the last few days soliciting votes for the PDP candidate popularly known as the ‘dancing senator’. At the Osogbo, Iwo, llesha, Ede leg of the rally, a mammoth crowd struggled to catch a glimpse of him. The turnout at all the campaign venues can be likened to a sold-out concert.
On Wednesday, the singer arrived Osogbo for a mega rally donning PDP regalia. Davido thrilled the teeming crowd to dance moves alongside his equally energetic uncle. He also urged attendees and PDP faithful to come with their permanent voter cards (PVCs) to the venue of the rallies.
But some Nigerians have raised concerns over his absence from the National Youth Service orientation exercise, which ended on Monday. Davido, 26, was one of the 2,152 Batch ‘B’ Stream II corps members sworn-in at the NYSC orientation camp, Ipaja in August.
The singer on Friday announced that he has to cut short his tour to return home for the mandatory NYSC commitment. Instead, the singer and his label mates have been touring major towns in Osun State.
Some Nigerians have also taken to social media to express divergent views over what they describe as Davido’s repeated flouting of NYSC policies.

Orezi Denies Burning The Nigerian Currency
Orezi who faced severe backlash few days ago for allegedly burning the N1,000 note in a new photo, has denied burning the Nigerian currency.
Orezi who released the picture to promote his new music, Born Broke Die Rich, was slammed by social media users who felt it was disrespectful to Nigeria and the country’s legal tender. However Orezi who denied burning the Nigerian currency in a new interview with Saturday Beats, said it was an edited picture.
“I never burnt the N1,000 note like people thought, it was just graphics; an edited picture. I did not burn the Nigerian currency. If you look at the picture, you would see that the fire almost got to my eyes. If it were real, I would not have been able to withstand the heat. I cannot allow fire to burn my eyes because I want to take a picture. I replied some comments when people were criticising me because of the picture.
“I told them that it was an artistic paper and I did not burn the Nigerian currency. Why would I burn money to promote my music? A lot of my fans also tried to explain to those that were abusing me that it was an edited picture, but they would not listen. Some people went as far as saying that they would arrest me because it is against the law, but I did not burn the money. It is not everything that you can explain to people; sometimes you just have to keep quiet” he said.
