Since entertainers have a huge fan base, the idea of having or using entertainers and musicians generally as a strategy during political seasons has not stopped.
The current political season has also been characterised by the political and entertainment synergy, just for the political aspirants to achieve their aim of winning elections.
A vivid example occurred between the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar and renowned singer Davido, when Atiku declared on twitter that Davido is the reigning king of music. While Davido also replied in the message, saying the incoming president, refering to Atiku Abubakar, knows wassupp.
In a video from Davido’s Twitter timeline, Atiku said “At my youth, Fela was the king of music, and believe me, he was my favorite musician. And I made sure I attended all Shrine musical events throughout the night and till morning.
“But of course, currently, the reigning king is Davido.“
In his reaction, Davido posted on Twitter saying: “Our incoming President knows wassup!!!! @atiku God Bless you sir !!”
On January 27, 2019 Davido etched his name in the history books following a successful outing at the O2 Arena in London.
