Nigerian music star, David Adekeke, popularly called Davido, was one of the entertainers that performed at the ongoing National Convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

His performance however came after he was teargassed by the police at the gate of the Adokiye Amiesiekema Stadium, Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital on Saturday night.

The security agents, who teargassed him, were trying to control the crowd at the gate and fired teargas, not knowing that the music star was in the crowd.

Some party chieftains and security agents later apologized to the OBO crooner, and ushered him into the stadium amidst hailings by the crowd.

It would be recalled that Davido played a major role in the Osun State governorship election where his uncle, Ademola Adeleke was the candidate of the PDP.
