Can an artiste be more powerful than a political office holder who is more respected in her country and in the diaspora?
This above question has to do with the Nigerian’s Finance Minister, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, while delivering her speech at the convocation ceremony at Babcock University, Ilisan Remo, Ogun State, on Sunday, June 1st.
Dr. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, was addressing the 1,544 graduating students of the institution when Davido’s sudden entrance at the event created an uproar of distraction.
The AYE crooner dramatic entrance while the special guest of honour, the Minister of Finance, was delivering her speech, made the Minister pause and watched the diversion.
Davido’s arrival held the audience spell-bound that the Minister had to pause her speech and watch the students celebrate the artiste’s arrival who, happens to be part of the graduating students with a degree in Music.
To respect the Finance Minister, Davido’s father, Chief Deji Adeleke, who was present at the occasion had to walk his son out for there to be calmness.
