Davido has said that police in the United States searched his home when he first bought it.
In a recent interview with Channel 4, the pop artiste said that the detectives suspected him because of where the house was located.
His words, “I’m the only African person in that neighborhood 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.”
“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.”
