Nigerians have reacted to a video of singer Davido’s uncle, Ademola Adeleke’s interview with a radio station in Osun state, where he is contesting as the gubernatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for the state’s election.
A Twitter user identified as comrade who shared the clip online captured the video with a mocking caption, calling on Davido to come and take his uncle away.
Ademola Adeleke was captured in the viral video reading a scripted agenda on what he plans to do for the citizens of Osun state.
He wrote: After months of pressure, @OsunPDP candidate agreed to feature on a radio programme only to come and be reading prepared script. @davido come and carry your uncle.
Reacting to this development, Nigerians claimed they found no wrong in what Ademola Adeleke did during his interview.
Many believed it was the right thing to do as some recount names of those who read scripted points during formal events or programmes.

Kemi Filani recalls that a few days ago, Davido contacted a Suleyman who lives in Ghana for a full-term scholarship to Adeleke University in Osun state after the boy cleared his WAEC exams with straight As.
“We have contacted Suleyman who lives in Ghana and he has been given a full 4/5 year scholarship to Adeleke University…. accommodation and allowance included! God bless y’all”
