Who says having a superstar for a nephew doesn’t have its perk? Well, Senator Dr Ademola Adeleke must be enjoying the free publicity he is getting from his nephew megastar as he flagged off his campaign for Osun State governorship seat on Tuesday.
With elections set to hold on September 22, Davido took to his Instagram account to share the poster of his uncle, who was elected into the Nigerian Senate to represent Osun West Senatorial District last year when his other uncle, Senator Isiaka Adeleke, who held that position, died in April 2017.
“Osun will be great again,” Davido captioned the campaign poster of his unlce, who is running under the platform of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. Davido who recently won African Artiste of the Year at the Ghana Music Awards Festival and released a new song, ‘Aje’ in collaboration with Peruzzi, Yonda and FreshVDM supported his uncle when he vied for the senatorial seat last year.
Famed as the ‘dancing senator’ after several videos of him dancing went viral, Senator Aemola Adeleke is the father of Sina Rambo and B Red who are both cousins of Davido and also hip hop musicians.
