Godswill Akpabio, the senate president, has advised Davido, the Afrobeats singer, not to “allow anyone drag you into politics”.

Akpabio gave the advice when the ‘Assurance’ hitmaker paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja on Monday.

During the visit, Akpabio praised Davido for “making Nigeria proud within the international community”.

The former Akwa Ibom governor also pledged the government’s support towards the growth of the entertainment industry.

Akpabio charged the Afrobeats singer to maintain his path in the entertainment industry and “not allow anybody to drag you into politics”.

The senate leader said although Davido supports the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), the current administration of President Bola Tinubu is ready to work across party lines “for the interest of the country”.

“You have made us very proud within the International Community. We will do everything possible to support the entertainment industry,” he said.

“For me and for the government of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, its an inclusive administration, and you must have noticed in my various outings, we move as one, across party lines.

Davido, on his part, appreciated the senate president for his gesture while reiterating his efforts to “help the society”.

The 31-year-old, who was in the company of Tunji and Folasade Adeleke, his cousins, also announced that his fifth album will be released in June or July.

“As for me, I am doing my part. I have a Foundation. Every year, I share N300 million, N400 million to orphanages. Just doing my own part to assist the society. We have new album coming out June or July. I just thank you for everything you have been doing for us,” Davido said.
