US Detectives Searched My House When I First Bought It – Davido
Being the only Africa in his neighborhood in Atlanta, Davido faced investigation just two days after he moved into the apartment. Detectives in the United States stormed the singer’s house to investigate his source of income, he revealed in new interview with Channel 4.
36ng reported that Davido featured on Channel 4 news where he didnt only speak on Afrobeats, and a future career in Nigerian politics but also his encounter after acquiring a house in Atlanta.
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,” he said.
“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.”
Davido also made it known that 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 home that’s not right. If I was in that position, there’s a lot of things I’ll do differently.
“Being African is cool now. It’s not only music, there’s the clothes, food and the whole culture.
“I have the biggest record ever in America right now, an African record. Most of the record is broken English, I’m speaking in broken English they don’t even know what I’m saying but it feels good.”
