David Adeleke, Nigerian Afropop singer better known as Davido, says he would not be visiting America until the ongoing face-off between the country and Iran is over.


The award-winning music star took to his social media page to disclose what appeared to be a thinly-veiled dig at President Donald Trump.

“Not going to America till the draft is over !! Crazy ass Trump trynna have me shouting Shekpe from Iran,” he wrote on Twitter. 

In Nigeria, ‘Shekpe’ is any hot drink or local gin that can be consumed.


The ‘OBO’ crooner’s comment comes against the back drop of the heated controversies trailing Trump’s inspired attack on Iran, which led to the death of Qasem Soleimani, a top military commander in Iran.

It also comes about the same time when Cardi B, American rapper and TV personality, had announced that she could move to Nigeria.

She had also tackled Trump for endangering the lives of many with his action.

“Naaaaa these memes are fuckin. But shit ain’t no joke! Specially being from New York,” she had written on Twitter.


“‘Its sad this man is putting Americans live in danger. Dumbest move Trump did till date. ‘I’m filing for my Nigerian citizenship.”
