National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) has cancelled the compulsory one-year orientation exercise embarked on by Nigerian musician David Adeleke popularly known as Davido.
The ‘Fall’ singer revealed the scheme cancelled his service in a comment he made on Instagram.
Reacting to a post made by Adesegun Adeosun, Nigerian music promoter better known as Smade, who just finished his three-week NYSC orientation program and got a letter of recommendation, Davido wrote:
“Naso dem cancel my own”.
The 26-year-old singer, who graduated from Babcock University in 2015 after studying music, had registered for NYSC in 2018 Batch ‘B’ stream II corp members who were sworn in on August 30.
Speaking on why he registered for the one-year mandatory scheme, Davido said he was tying all loose ends.
“I am a youth and I am delighted to serve my fatherland,” he said at his swearing-in ceremony.
“NYSC is also a leadership development programme and since I will not remain a youth forever, I have to start preparing myself for the future.”
