Davido says detectives in the United States came to search his house when he first bought it.
In an interview with Channel 4, the ‘Fall’ singer said the detectives were suspicious of him because of the neighbourhood where he bought the house.
“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 think the authorities have a problem with it 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.”
The 26-year-old Afrobeats singer described entertainment as a saving grace for Africa saying: “that is the only thing we can look at and smile.”
Davido said 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 were in that position, there are a lot of things I’ll do differently.
“Being African is cool now. It’s not only music, but there’s also 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.”
