Davido, DJ Cuppy face Backlash from Fans as They’re in Kenya, Missing the Elections



Davido in Nairobi, Kenya - March 2015 Davido and DJ Cuppy are currently facing some heat from fans as they’re in Nairobi, Kenya this weekend for a concert, making them unable to vote. 

B-Red, Kenyan Victoria Kimani, DJ Obi, Asa Asika and more are also in the city.

We’re guessing they were unable to cancel because of contractual obligations, a similar problem Basketmouth cited, when he couldn’t move his annual London show on February 14, the original election date.

Both DJ Cuppy and Davido used separate private jets for their trips.

    But some Nigerians are bloody hypocrites. Some of those ranting i’m sure have no PVC. What has her going to Kenya affect you or the state of the country. You sit down, type and you think it’s ideal to bring people down with your words. It is very wrong. A father is a billionaire? So?. What has that got to do with anything. Go out and vote and stop harassing people!

    Nigerians just love getting upset over someone else’s wealth. Whose fault is it that these two were born into rich families. I’m more surprised by their work ethic considering none of them ever have to work to live a comfortable life.

    I’m also very sure a lot of these people spewing hate are doing so from their homes. We are the biggest hypocrites. Blatantly accusing someone of not voting when you’re not voting either. Miss me with that trash.

    Btw BN if you like don’t post this comment. There was no need mentioning how they travelled. These subtle shades are so childish and petty.

    Lmao @that hand go bend! Nigerians have no chill at all! But how can we? The extreme cynicism and aggression is as a direct result of over exposure to the heat from the electricity crisis induced by the infamous Otedola & the 40 thieves.

    I think they would have tried to reschedule their appointments at Nairobi to enable them participate. If they couldn’t, then they shouldn’t shove it in our faces about their trip. Keep the flexing pictures till after election. Psquare and flavour are in London and having a show today. I feel it’s disrespectful given that Nigeria is their backbone directly or indirectly and one day they will need our support or go into political path

    I have a problem when we live in denial. What’s right is right and wrong,wrong. Let’s even forget about the wealth of these individuals. who is left to vote in order to effect a change we claim we desperately need,when most people flee the country under the guise of work,biz,children’s pta abroad etc? What sort of cowardly behavior is this?! Who is the country being left for? might I add that everyone can run too,Cotonou is just round the corner,and thus it’s beyond the money but the attitude. We have no other country but this one please and can only be built if we work together!! Anyone not here at this crucial time deserves every manner of insult that comes their way,it’s the height of gross irresponsibility. Anytime the truth is told it’s said “people are hating”…….please give up that phrase already!! ARRANT RUBBISH……….

      I’m not an advocate of either individual mentioned in the above post (particularly because I’ve known my country well enough to understand that many “Nigerian Billioniares” have built their “riches” on undisclosed political favours and the sufferings of the masses… Feel free to point out any exceptions to this rule…).

      However, I know the Nigerian government royally messed up a lot of people’s schedules due to their unexpected postponement of the elections from 14th Feb to 28th March. And from what I’m even reading, it seems voting will spill over to Sunday 29th March as well, further upsetting the applecart. My mum had already planned to not be in the country during the end of March for her own personal reasons and there was nary a chance in heck she was moving that travel date even further into April, because of the professional engagements involved. She was, however, in the country for the original election date and would have voted if her long-awaited PVC had finally showed up at the collection point (long story for another day).

      There might be contractual obligations or others which impacted on this weekend and tied their hands so the gross irresponsibility you speak of would only apply to wilfully disregarding those commitments. I’m in agreement with you that Nigeria’s future should be everyone’s concern but you have to admit that INEC hasn’t helped the cause at all.
