Daddy Showkey is a veteran Nigerian Galala singer popular in Ajegunle in the late 1990s. He was born as John Asiemo but is known as Daddy Showkey all over the Ghetto?.

In a recent interview with Hiptv trending anchored by Nancy Isieme, and monitored by Nollywoodgists.com, the multi-talented singer recalled how he left the music scene after he had an accident, injured his spinal cord and on his return was almost killed by paid assassins.

"I left the music industry after I had a terrible accident and injured my spinal cord. I then went abroad to work on it. After I returned, I had to go back again for further treatment. As soon as I fully recovered and ready to hit the music scene again, assassins were after me. They came to my house to kill me but met my absence and ended up killing another person instead.

As if that wasn't enough, they still trailed me to a Filling station and shot me. So you see, it has been from one battle to another, but i'm fully back to take over the center stage," he reassured.

Adding to that, Daddy Showkey has been appointed a GOtv brand ambassador. The endorsement deal was signed at the MultiChoice head office in Lagos early in December last year.
