Popular Nigerian Afrobeats singer, David Adeleke, best known as Davido, has come out to clarify reports on his alleged arrest in Uganda.

Recall that the singer is on a world tour which he has held shows in East African countries including Uganda and Kenya. Not long after his successful shows, reports of him being arrested ravaged the internet on the 1st of April, 2024.

The singer has since come out to clarify the issue by taking to the popular microblogging platform X formerly known as Twitter to make an official statement concerning his arrest. It was an ‘April fools’ joke, the singer said.

Davido's official statement goes thus;

Fam, it has come to my attention that false reports regarding an arrest circulated online on April 1st, which has since led to a barrage of calls. I want to assure my fans that these reports are entirely untrue. I successfully completed my scheduled shows in Uganda and Kenya and have since returned home to Nigeria.

I’d also like to note that I have never been arrested by anyone in any country for any crime in the world. Not my home Nigeria, my home America, or any of the hundreds of countries l’ve made home throughout my career.

I find the fabrication of allegations of such international crimes extremely irresponsible regardless of the light of

‘April Fools’, and my lawyer is seeking legal recourse against the media parties responsible for generating this misinfor-mation.

Thank you for your continued support. Our blessings are from God. I love you all.
