NYSC has cancelled my one-year service, says Davido
David ‘Davido’ Adeleke said the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) has cancelled his one-year orientation exercise. The ‘Fall’ singer made the claim in a comment on Instagram.
Reacting to a post made by Adesegun Adeosun, Nigerian music promoter better known as Smade who just finished his three-week NYSC orientation program, and got a letter of recommendation Davido wrote “Naso dem cancel my own”.
The 26-year-old singer, who graduated from Babcock University in 2015 after studying music, had registered for NYSC in 2018 Batch ‘B’ stream II corp members who were sworn in on August 30.
The NYSC programme is mandatory for all graduates to qualify for gainful employment in Nigeria.
Speaking on why he registered for the scheme, Davido said he was tying all loose ends.
“I am a youth and I am delighted to serve my fatherland,” he said at his swearing-in ceremony.
“NYSC is also a leadership development programme and since I will not remain a youth forever, I have to start preparing myself for the future.”
After promising to take part in all camp activities, the ‘FIA’ singer cancelled his US tourthat was scheduled to hold in September for NYSC commitments.
