Reno Omokri, Davido
Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has taken popular singer, Davido’s side after he was caught on camera lying about not being involved with the on-going #EndSARS protest.
Davido met with the Lagos State Police PRO, Frank Mba today. During the closed-door meeting, Davido said he never joined in the protest to end SARS.
“How can you come here for closed door meeting when you were protesting…?” Frank Mba asked.
“I didn’t protest,” Davido said, repeating, “I did not protest.”
Frank Mba insisted, telling him that he “identified with the protesters yesterday”.
Davido replied: “I have to because they’re my fans. And I was there actually to calm them down. I was not there to protest.”
Nigerians slammed Davido after the video went viral and Reno Omokri stepped in to defend him.
Reno said Davido was simply being diplomatic.
He wrote: “I just watched the video of @DavidoOfficial with the spokesman of the @nigeriapoliceforce, Frank Mba.
“What I read in the media was pure hyperbole. He was not jittery. Yes, he was diplomatic and there is nothing wrong with that. It is not cowardice. It is wisdom. Even Scripture preaches it. In my opinion, those accusing him of betraying #SARSMUSTEND are not being kind to him.
“How many celebrities came out to identify with protesters? I don’t want to mention names. Some were even defending FSARS. And then you start to criticise the Davido that risked his life to identify with his fans, just because he applied wisdom. And you expect more celebrities to join us?”
He added in another post: “Diplomacy is not hipocrisy.”
