What Davido Told 'Corpers' After Electrifying The Lagos NYSC Orientation Camp With His Presence
Aug 30, 2018 1:00 PM
It was pure drama that took place today as soldiers, police and the officials of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) had a Herculean time controlling corps members when popular musician, David Adeleke entered the Orientation camp in Iyana Ipaja on Thursday after the opening ceremony of the three week orientation programme for 2,152 2018 Batch B Stream II corps members.
Davido, a graduate of music from Babcock University was greeted by a crowd of cheering corps members who almost mobbed him as he came out of a white Mercedes Benz with a Police Force plate number PF 413-S.
The NYSC’s Coordinator, Prince Mohammed Momoh’s best effort to avoid commotion as a result of the star’s presence proved abortive as corps members surrounded his office screaming with excitement after soldiers and officials managed to get him in.
Davido dressed in the NYSC ceremonial uniform signed the NYSC oath for corps members admidst camp officials and soldiers.
According to a report by The Nation, the officials had to summon the corps members to the parade ground with the beagle to draw them away from the State Coordinator’s office.
Afterwards he was brought out to the corps members who had been made to sit on the parade ground. He refused to stand on a makeshift stage brought for him but preferred to stand if front of his peers instead.
He told them to stay motivated in serving their country.
“Stay motivated; I love you all,” he said before he was whisked away.
In an interview with journalists, Davido said he chose to serve three years after graduation because he was still young.
“I am still young and I want to spend my time as a youth to serve my country. I am corper like any other and I think I can withstand the pressure.
Corps members and even others who sell in the Mammy Market ran around as his car left the camp. In his characteristic way, he threw a wad of cash in the air which made some stop the pursuit to scramble for the money. But others still went on until the car left the premises.
Some corps members described the experience as exciting, while some others felt it was unnecessary.
“Today was like the bomb. Lagos is the best camp. The best thing Davido came to camp. It was amazing.
"Being a celebrity doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go to school or serve. It is just to promote our country that no matter what you are go to school and serve your father’s land,” said Victor Adebiyi a graduate of Business administration from Ekiti State University.
Another corps member, said it was okay that the NYSC was cautious about Davido’s presence in camp because of the distraction
” This is the best they should have done. Even if he is here in camp it would cause a lot of distraction because many people would want to mingle with him,” he said.
However, Tolani Tells, a Psychology graduate, felt the corps members should not have been kept on the parade ground because of the music star.
“It was embarrassing to me as a person. I see it as demeaning to me.
"You won’t tell me to sit on the floor because someone is coming. He went to school like I did. I even spent six years for a four-year course; I spent more years in school than he did. I didn’t see him when he came to register and life did not end so if I didn’t see him today, it wouldn’t matter,” she said.
