Why US detectives searched my house – Davido

Reigning act, Davido, has revealed that detectives in the United States came to search his house when he first bought it.

In the interview with Channel 4, the singer stated that the detectives were suspicious of him because of the neighbourhood where he bought the house.

He said, “I’m the only African person in that neighbourhood so I moved in and, two days later, detectives came to my door. They came in and searched the whole house asking me what I do because I bought that house cash. I don’t have a problem with authorities but it might be shocking,

“I won’t say it is racism, that’s how they’ve been brainwashed. Living in America, you are brought up to think that Africa is a no-go area. In Africa, we are brought up to think that these people took everything from us so that is something that we have to fix.”

The 26-year-old Afrobeats singer described entertainment as a saving grace for Africa, saying, “That is the only thing we can look at and smile.”

Davido said he might probably go into politics or hang around the political circle.

“I might probably go into politics. If I’m not in it 100% I might just be around. There’s a lot of things going on at home that are  not right. If I was in that position, there’s a lot of things I’ll do differently.”
