Davido loses millions as he cancels US tour for NYSC commitments


Afro pop star, Davido may be counting his losses at the moment as it is being reported that the singer has cancelled his US tour that would have fetched him millions of naira to focus on his National Youth Service Scheme exercise which begins this week.

It was gathered that the decision to cancel the tour was hinged on the singer’s resolve to participate at the compulsory one-year scheme, even as he knew it would affect other engagements that could swell his pocket while it lasted.

Davido had reportedly informed those close to him that he wanted to participate at the scheme even it meant that he would lose some millions of dollars as it was learnt that he may be eyeing a political ambition in the future.

Information pieced together by our correspondent revealed that the Nwa Baby crooner, who had left the NYSC camp at Iyana Ipaja, Lagos State, after causing a stir with his appearance at the ground some weeks back to continue his US tour, had been forced to discontinue other performances due to his commitment to the scheme.

A close source in the camp of the singer told our correspondent that Davido is passionate about his education hence his decision to have completed his first degree in the first place. The source hinted further that he might be losing some cool millions but he would not feel anything because “he’s loaded already.”
