VIDEO: “They came in, searched the whole house….” – Davido recounts terrifying ordeal with Police in US

Published on

Award-winning music star, Davido, shared his experience with racial profiling in America during an interview.

In a viral video making the rounds on social media, the OBO Crooner recounted how the police treated him when he bought a house in the US.

Davido revealed he bought a house in an all-white neighborhood when he was around 23 or 24.

According to him, two days after he moved in, he heard a knock on the door and it was a detective type of police.

The DMW Boss recalled how they searched the whole place and asked him questions on how he bought the house, what he does for a living and more.

Davido said:

When I was 23, no 24, I was the only African person in that neighborhood, so I moved in, had a U-Haul truck behind me. 2 days later, police came to the door, like a detective type. They came in and searched the whole house, asking me what do I do, because I bought that house cash”

The interviewer proceeded to note that UK rapper, Stormzy, also experienced something similar when he bought a house in Chelsea then she asked what Davido’s thoughts were on the incident.

Reacting, The 29-year-old noted that when white people see a black person doing something positive and making money, they are confused and want to know how.

Davido said:

“I don’t think they have a problem with it, it might just be shocking or they want to know how. When you see young black men not stealing money, not killing, not robbing, doing something positive and makes money out of it and moves to a certain area, they are confused.”

The Singer went on to note that he considers it to be a result of brainwashing because Americans are brought up to think there’s nothing good in Africa.

In his words: “I wouldn’t say it’s racist because that’s how they’ve been brainwashed to think.

I’ve lived in the western world, I live in Africa SO i understand why the Africans are angry and I also understand why the Americans will think that way because living in America, you’re brought up to think Africa is like no go area, in Africa, we are brought up to think ‘yo this people took everything from us’, so I think that’s something we have to fix.”

Davido has US citizenship and purchased his first house in US, Atlanta (Georgia State) to be precise in 2017 to spend a vacation there.

The mansion was built in a classical style. The mansion is painted in pastel beige and sand colors. It alleged that costs about 20 million dollars.
