Daddy Showkey has revealed that he might consider running for elective office in the nearest future.

The veteran singer was a guest at Ebuka’s “Rubbin Minds” where he shared his future aspiration. According to him, because he holds Ajejunle close to his heart, there might be a possibility of him getting involved in politics.

“One day…yes now in my house. I’m not doing it because of the intention that i want to run for politics but right now with the situation that I am seeing in my neighborhood because Ajegunle is the most important place for me, maybe I might consider,” he said.

When asked if he had seen any progress in his neighbourhood in the last two decades, he said no, citing the notion that, Ajegunle is seen as the place where people are used for campaigns rather than actually developing the area.

“I have not, that area is like the come and use us for the campaigning when it comes to development they neglect us. That’s why I’m critical about what is going on in Lagos state today. i am watching we dey look una we are looking at you people because there is something I have been fighting for so many years from Tinubu government to Fashola’s government to the present government, and for all of them about this thing the only thing that can limit crime from my neighbourhood  is to get these children engaged and the only thing that can limit crime is when they have a playground, a recreation center and they don’t,” he concluded.
