After two years, all we hear from Buhari are excuses – Dele Momodu

Posted 3 days, 8 hrs ago
The Publisher of Ovation magazine, Dele Momodu, speaks about the push by some people for President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election, how he made up with Nigerian pop star, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, and other issues, in this interview with GBENRO ADEOYE

Your feud with music artiste, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, lasted for about two years before you made up last December. How did that happen?

I will call it a misunderstanding. But despite the misunderstanding that existed between our families, I remained his biggest fan, even when they said he sang a song to abuse me. It was reported that I walked out of his concert in anger; that is not true. In fact, I waited till the end of that concert because of him. And his father, Dr. Adedeji Adeleke, is a perfect gentleman. I called him late last year. I had been calling him for some time but he went abroad because of the death of his brother. We are all saddened by it. You see, our families have a long history. David’s mum was like my sister before she died. They say that even the tongue and the mouth do quarrel. So, we had the misunderstanding but a child is involved, a little girl, Imade. She is a carbon copy of David. So I said I didn’t want to go into the New Year fighting anybody. I called his father and fortunately, he responded well to my suggestion to have David perform at the Ovation Carol, but the problem was now about logistics because David was very busy and was travelling everywhere because he is a global artiste. So he promised that he would check with David’s manager to see if they were available for that night in Nigeria. And a few days to the event, David’s dad called and said David’s manager had been trying to reach me. So I called him and he said David was travelling to Cote D’Ivoire but would return that night. I told him that I would not promote it because I wanted it to be a surprise, so nobody knew about it, including the members of my team. That was it and I am happy that it has had a domino effect. You saw Davido and Wizkid (Nigerian singer, Ayodeji Balogun) singing together. It was all in the spirit of what I exhibited and you saw D’banj (Oladapo Oyebanjo) and Don Jazzy (Michael Ajereh) together. That is what I have always prayed for. I ‘m a peacemaker and that is why I cannot abuse people like some people want me to do. Even when I criticise people, like when I criticised President Buhari, for instance, I did it with affection. I am not a ‘kill and go’ journalist. All the people that abuse others anyhow, give them half the opportunities given to those they abuse and they will mess up and do worse.
