Davido, Nigerian Afropop singer, has commenced his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme.


The ‘FIA’ singer shared a photo of himself on Tuesday in the full NYSC uniform.

“Otondo OBO,” he said. “Tying up every loose end!”

Davido, an award-winning singer, graduated from Babcock University in 2015. He studied music.


The artiste is currently gearing up to release his new album in September, after which he intends to headline a concert at the O2 Arena in London, UK.

The NYSC programme is mandatory for all graduates to qualify for gainful employment in Nigeria.

Kemi Adeosun, minister of finance, was recently accused of obtaining a fake NYSC exemption certificate.

Adeosun reportedly failed to participate in the NYSC programme as at when due.

According to a report by Premium Times, the minister’s exemption certificate was purportedly signed in September 2009 by Yusuf Bomoi, a retired brigadier-general.


However, Bomoi officially left NYSC on February 13, 2009, giving rise to queries on the originality of the certificate.

The minister has been silent on the matter since the news broke.
