BET award winner and international act, Davido, is in trouble with the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency over his new song/video titled ‘Fans mi’ featuring Meek Mill.

Davido (David Adedeji Adeleke) is currently under investigation for show casing what can be easily be construed as hard drugs in the video featuring Maybach Group artist, Meek Mill. The video, which has gone viral since it was released earlier this month, shows Davido discussing with an unidentified man as they haggle over a briefcase of dollars and a bag full of parcels of the suspicious substance. There were also crude scenes in the video.

The title of the song indicates the‎‎ Aye crooner’s gratitude and appreciation for his fans, for their love and support towards his career over the years. However, the singer made it about himself, his enemies and money, flaunting hard drugs, nudity and guns in the video. His fans have expressed dissatisfaction over the video. Some claim the talented singer would have done better by showing pictures of his fans, his past shows and encounters with fans, rather than displaying hard drugs, nudity and guns.

According to Sunday Telegraph, NDLEA’s Head of Public Affairs, Mr. Mitchell Ofoyeju, revealed in an email that “The agency considers the musical video ‘Fans Mi’ inappropriate and indecent. It has the tendency to negatively influence and induce drug use and trafficking. Besides, it is counter-productive on the campaign against drug production, trafficking and abuse. The agency is investigating the matter and will take necessary action.” 

Popular music video critics, Mrs. Nuella O’Peters, also had something to say, “It’s really outrageous seeing a brand ambassador and a mentor to millions of African youths indulging in such acts. He even went as far as using the substance for cooking in the video.

Can you imagine! It’s uncalled for. I do hope the Nigeria Broadcasting Corporation will do something about the video.” 

For those of you who hasn’t seen the controversial video, see for yourself and you all should tell me what you think; Is the popstar a drug dealer or an overzealous musician? ‎
