Daddy Showkey, a classic Nigerian musician took to his Instagram page to advise his followers concern drinking and smoking. He asked his fans to quit smoking and other routines of behavior that could be detrimental to their health.
On Instagram, he wrote: ‘If the food that you eat is not good for your body stop it, if the drink that you drink is not good for your body stop it,if the smoke wen you dey smoke no good for your health stop am,if hard drug wen you dey take no good for body stop am or him the make you talk any how stop am think of your Pikin oo, na your pikin people go use all this talk laugh tomorrow a no call anybody name oo because wanna say make I no dey call anybody name again. You wey know say this message touch you quit.’
Fair and square, this got the attention of his fans, but went wider than you think. The advice caught the attention of one of his fans, who commented and claimed that they once smoked together in 1996.
Fan: Me and you smoke for apapa 1996 you don sing Diana blow come forget me showkey bobo.
Daddy Showkey: Be like say you no know who you and him smoke for Apapa, na you buy the Igbo for me, abi you don smoke today again.
Since Daddy showkey wrote the piece, he has attracted many smokers, so is there a possibility the fan knows Daddy showkey or it’s just the smokers thing ?
