Davido has opened up on how his ‘FEM’ song almost landed him in trouble.
Infoexpert24 understands that ‘FEM’ means shut up, and the song became a sensation in 2020 after it was used by demonstrators to shush individuals or groups whose commentaries were unsolicited during the period of the #EndSARS protest.
In an interview with L’officiel, a French fashion magazine, Davido said although the song was dropped two weeks before the protest began, it was very influential to the campaign.
In the interview, Davido also recounted the moment a random person played the track at a rally to interrupt a government official that was addressing the protesters.
“It’s crazy because we didn’t record that. #EndSARS hadn’t even started yet. We dropped that record two weeks before.
“The record’s already gone, it was huge impact already. Then there was a little rally where this government official was speaking to the people and then somebody played the song.
“They played the song, everybody’s singing. He’s trying to talk, but everybody is singing the song instead.
Then somebody got the video and it just went crazy. From there, it became the anthem of the whole– I almost got in trouble. I was like, ‘Yo, I did record that song, but It was nice to see them use a song of mine to be instrumental in how they felt,” he said.
