With the ugly turn out of events following the Lekki toll gate shooting, different developments and narratives have sprung up. One of such was Lagos lawmaker and Nollywood star, Desmond Elliot, who was alleged to be pushing for a bill to censor social media speech and also reportedly blamed the Lekki shooting on social media influencers and celebrities. Though he has since come out to debunk the allegations.
Several Nigerians on social media refused to accept Desmond’s explanation and one of the bunch was popular artiste, Davido.
Davido was of the opinion that with the narrative the lawmaker came up with, young people like him could still fail Nigerians if elected into office as president.
Davido agrees that young people can still fail Nigerians if given power. His statement was a reply to a young man who said Elliott was proof that a young person could be the president and still fail Nigerians
His fans took to the comment section to express their opinions. While some of them agreed with him, others simply did not.
