Nigerian pop star, Davido, has revealed that there has to be a complete change of Nigeria’s electoral system if he is to venture into politics.
The singer spoke in an interview with Beat FM on Friday, following the end of his short-lived social media hiatus, which led to the release of his single ‘FEM’.
“Before I go into politics, they have to change the whole system. I’m not going to hustle and win the election, be sitting in my office then they will now take me to court and later tell me I did not win,” he said.
Asked about the delay in releasing ‘A Better Time’ album, he said:“I was on tour and had decided to ride on ‘A Good Time’ album until 2021. But I figured out that six of the songs on it had been released before the album,” he said.
‘Blow my Mind’, ‘Risky’, ‘If’, ‘Fall’, ‘Assurance’ were already out. I didn’t feel like it was a complete brand new album. So immediately I came back from the tour, we just started recording.
“Now, I dropped a song from A Better Time ‘Fem’. It a 17-track album so we’re going to get like 16 new songs. Obviously Nicki Minaj is on it.
“It (A Better Time) will come out before December. I’ve submitted my album. The reason for the delay was that, firstly, I wanted to go away. I didn’t want to drop an album in heat of the crisis.
“Then we were still confused. I wanted time to really figure out. But now people know how to move. If I had dropped in July, I won’t be in the studios granting interviews.
“Also, I wanted it close to Christmas. Another thing is that on the album cover is my son. His birthday is in October. At the party, I want to be able to show him. I had to consider that as well.”
