Davido and Uncle

Nigerian singer Davido has sparked online reactions after calling out his cousin, Dele Adeleke, for planning to contest against their uncle, Ademola Adeleke, in the Osun Gubernatorial election.

In the post shared on the microblogging platform, Davido said it amazes him that his cousin, who struggled to graduate with second class lower in the university, is parading himself as an intellectual personality.

Davido added his cousin, who has not succeeded in building anything for himself want to be governor of Osun state calling the citizens to beware.

Wonderful! Me I finished with a 2:1, but it’s now cousin dele who struggled to even get a 2:2 that is now forming intellectual. Intellectual that has not succeeded in building one single thing in his life of his own. This life ehn! Osun beware of fakes!

Davido’s tweet sparked mixed reactions online. While some questioned what his uncle Ademola Adeleke has achieved, others urged him to allow the contestants to run their race.

 Georgina Onuoha has slammed Davido’s uncle, Senator Ademola Adeleke and friends, on being clueless about what politics entails.

This comes after veteran journalist Dele Momodu took to his Instagram page to share a video of Ademola Adeleke and his friends.

According to Dele Momodu, Ademola Adeleke and his political associate, including friends, worshipped God at his home in Abuja after the governorship screening exercise.

Reacting to this, Georgina Onuoha expressed displeasure over the video stating that Ademola Adeleke and his friends do not know how to alleviate the pain and suffering of the masses.

Georgina Onuoha added that Ademola Adeleke and his friends are only thinking of their stomach and power acquisition, noting that politics should not be a job anymore but means to serve where people can still keep their regular jobs.

    Madness is not only when you’re naked on the street but when you talk senseless. You graduated with 2:1 which we all knew how you scare through. Please don’t bring your family catastrophe to the public. That Osun State is in that condition today is all because of your family so never you cause whom God have not caused because you and your so called uncle are not saints. Is it because no one questioned you for the sudden death of your crew members when you’re busy buying luxury cars and houses?? Just use your tongue and count your teeth. Davido be warned!

      Dinkychris, who really are you pls.
      I want to let you know base on your comment here concerning the feud between this young man called Davido and his cousin and the point you raised about people dying around him mysteriously while he is seen buying expensive cars, that you’re one of the rare Nigerians who can still think straight and whose mindset and faculty of thinking and reasoning is not being manipulated by satanic dominion reigning supreme over Nigerian public space.
      As you rightly said many of this closest friends and aides are just dropping dead and you will see him shedding crocodile tears for their demise, nobody is raising any dust. Therefore my brother I so much salute your courage for speaking out truth to power. God bless you abundantly.

    Leadership from history has never been based on qualification but by experience. Even here in Nigeria a professor lawyer is a subordinate to his superior president who has no qualification.what the people are interested on is good leadership and not qualification.So David keep your degree and settle your family.

      Your talk is senseless that’s why you chose to be anonymous. You are elevating the fact that a professor of law viced an illiterate president as if that is not why we’re in a mess in this country right now, which country in Europe and America or Asia do you see succeeding with a buhari/illiterate as a president. If you have a buhari as the president of U.S. you won’t love to go there to hustle as the case of many Nigerians right now.

    Mr. David, pls let Boda ‘Dele exhale! Where were you in the 80’s when Senior Dele became the Senior Prefect of the Prestigious Ikolaba Secondary School?
    He has shown leadership traits from a tender age. I believe you should encourage your Uncle to support your cousin.Please add conflict resolution to your Philantrophic works.God bless you sir.

    Davido I love you for the charity work you do.But it shocked me that u could speak such of your uncle.This is my first time of seeing a Yoruba man publicly insult his elder which me I know is condemnable in Yoruba culture.Learn at tide from your humble father.This attitude can make your millions of lovers turn their back on you.Go and beg uncle dele.And pray for forgiveness and grace.Go beg your uncle today.Know that social media is always on the watch,the next time you want to talk.You have disappointed so many of your fans.David Adeleke is time you grow up and act like a man and stop childish attitude.Remember you can’t have it your way always nomather your level in life

    Dele Adeleke I don’t know but the dancing Adeleke I know is not fit for the seat of govr, even in banana republic. I think David should employ him as one of his dancers which to me would be round peg in round hole. Why contracting tailor for abroad construction? Mbok,ge ya uncle job or help him enrol in dancing competitions anywhere in the world, I’m sure he would win abi na only gomina work him know?

      The Adelekes believe that the State of Osun is their family heritage. What degrees does his illiterate shameless dancing Senator possess? To think that that charlatan can be governor of the state means that this boy with 2.1 lacks sense and doesn’t mean well for the State.

        This is so dishesrtening coming from OBO. This is a boy i thought has mental capacity but I was dead wrong. During EndSars David was one of the supporters of youth empowrment and now see what he is spewing to favor a man who knows nothing, has nothing to offer than dance kpalombo dance upandan. Guy go get sense Mehn!

    Its OK if dele competes David, let the best man win. My dear bro, all I can say is,some times. We don’t discuss family on social media. It could deliberately be taken wrongly by some others. Make amend with dele dear David. If u feel they shouldn’t run against each other,discuss it in a family forum, don’t bring it to SM.May God continue ro jpljdt your family bro. Amen

    So what will you expect from a young chap like Davido that didnt hav struggles in life and GOD smiled on him to prosper? He would definately run his mouth na.
    If you watch Dele’s interviews, you will know he is more than capable to handle the state.
    He has worked with his uncle in the political scene as an underground man. So he knows the rudiments.
    Davido, we be your fan oooo.
    No fall our hands. Dont come to the social media to open up whats happening in your family.
    And also respect your elders, you don’t know what the future would bring.

      I fully support you Adéyemí, to add to your comment, I’ll suggest that Davido enroll the dancing senator in a dancing school to be dancing for Davido.

    What has grade for to do with being intellectual or running for political office. Have you ever heard of Whole Soyinka? Or what is rummoured (because I heard and not confirmed) to have being his class when he graduated from Uni? You that came out with 2.1 and you spewed this nonsence, your class should be checked.
