Many Nigerians were excited to see that Davido had chosen to serve his country despite his privileges. He was described as a true Nigerian and was commended by Nigerians for taking the step.
However, in a recent development, it was gathered that the singer’s service had been cancelled by the National Youth Service Corps.
The reports of the service cancellation surfaced after Davido commented on a post shared on Instagram. The comment had suggested that his service got cancelled.

Davido’s comment said: “Nah so dem cancel my own.” This comment made Nigerians assume that the singer’s service was cancelled.
However, it is possible that Davido was talking about a different thing entirely. The singer who had turned his camp arrival into a concert was also very active during his own orientation. It could also be assumed that the singer’s commendation for social activities was cancelled not his service.
