Davido’s conversation with police spokesman Frank Mba :
“How can you come here for closed door meeting when you were protesting…?” Frank Mba asked.
“I didn’t protest,” Davido said, repeating, “I did not protest.”
Frank Mba insisted, telling him that he “identified with the protesters yesterday”.
Davido replied: “I have to because they’re my fans. And I was there actually to calm them down. I was not there to protest.”
After watching the video of Davido at the scheduled meeting with the police spokesman, Reno commended the singer for his actions, he said Davido was being diplomatic and there is nothing wrong with that.
He said it is not cowardice, it simply wisdom.
“I just watched the video of @DavidoOfficial with the spokesman of the @nigeriapoliceforce, Frank Mba.
What I read in the media was pure hyperbole. He was not jittery. Yes, he was diplomatic and there is nothing wrong with that. It is not cowardice. It is wisdom. Even Scripture preaches it. In my opinion, those accusing him of betraying #SARSMUSTEND are not being kind to him.
How many celebrities came out to identify with protesters? I don’t want to mention names. Some were even defending FSARS. And then you start to criticise the Davido that risked his life to identify with his fans, just because he applied wisdom. And you expect more celebrities to join us?”
“If My Son Behaved As @davidoofficial Did, I would Be Proud of Him
Diplomacy Is Not Hypocrisy”
