“I Can’t Quit Music For Advocacy” – Daddy Showkey

Veteran musician Daddy Showkey has
stated that is not quitting music for
advocacy like some people thought.

Speaking to Saturday Beats during the
week, the galala crooner said, “I have been
an advocate right from time; music is inside
me. I am always in the studio working, so
it’s not as if I have left music for advocacy
Showkey is still Showkey.”

The singer has been in the news a lot in
recent times, for his advocacy against some
of the happenings in the country,
particularly the road blocks in Ajegunle
caused by illicitly parked tankers and
containers.

He shared with Saturday Beats the reason
behind his crusade against tankers and
trailers parking around the major roads in
Ajegunle. He said, “People’s lives are in
danger and they are important to me. The
tankers always obstruct the road and if there
is an emergency, people will not find an
escape route easily. Every business around
Ajegunle is dying because people cannot
access the area easily. I wanted the governor
to see what the people are going through and
I am happy that he has finally intervened.”

The veteran used his Instagram account to
get the governor’s attention to the situation
in Ajegunle Donclimax, he said, “The
container terminal in Donclimax should also
be moved; it is high time we started showing
concern over the welfare of ordinary people
within Lagos State and Nigeria generally.
“ Why would they build a container terminal
in a residential area? A container terminal is
supposed to be close to a seaport. I will keep
advocating for my people, because they are
the ones that listen to our songs and buy my
albums.”

and the song is targeted at addressing some
of the major ills in country.
