Is Daddy Showkey Venturing Into Politics?



Ajegunle City artiste, Daddy Showkey, has given a snippet on his desire to be in an elective office in the near future.

The veteran singer who was a guest at Ebuka’s ‘Rubbin Minds,’ shared his thoughts about his future aspiration as it concerns politics. According to him, because he holds Ajejunle close to his heart, there might be a possibility of him getting involved in politics.

“One day… yes now in my house. I’m not doing it because of the intention that I want to run for politics but right now with the situation that I am seeing in my neighborhood, because Ajegunle is the most important place for me, I might consider.”

When asked if he had seen any progress in his neighbourhood in the last two decades, he said no! And hinted on the notion that Ajegunle is seen as the place where people are simply used during campaigns, rather than actually developing the area.

“That area is like a place they come and use us during their campaigns, but when it comes to development, they neglect us. That’s why I’m critical about what is going on in Lagos State today. I am watching, we dey look una. We are looking at you people because there is something I have been fighting for so many years; from Tinubu’s government to Fashola’s government to the present government, and for all of them, the only thing that can limit crime in my neighbourhood is getting the children in the area engaged either by giving them a playground, a recreation center or otherwise. But they don’t.”

If you aren’t conversant with Daddy Showkey’s Instagram page, you have to take a sneak peep because he has used it as a platform to fight for Ajegunle community. Recall a few months ago, he raised an alarm that his life was being threatened because of his stance on the petroleum tanker drivers parking their trucks in Ajegunle.
