David Adeleke, music star better known as Davido, and Habeeb Okikiola, known as Portable, are currently campaigning in Osun State ahead of Saturday’s governorship election.
The election is clearly a rematch between incumbent Governor Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Senator Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who squared off in 2018.
In their final rallies, the APC and PDP used the music stars to target young people.
Davido caused a stir on social media after he was spotted leading prayers ahead of their campaign rally.
The rally was held on Thursday in the south-western state.
Meanwhile, Zazu crooner, who had earlier visited Oyetola, was mocked for his hilarious display at the campaign.
In photos that emerged online, Portable stripped off his shorts and clothes while holding the symbol of APC, ‘the broom’.
The photos generated online reactions from many Twitter users, with some expressing displeasure at the singer, while others claimed APC would regret calling Portable for the rally.
Meanwhile, Davido got some accolades.
