Davido pledges to reward the biker who traveled from Benue State to meet him.
Nigerian Afrobeat superstar Davido has responded positively to the cyclist embarking on a journey from Benue to Lagos by bicycle to honour him.
In an effort to let the singer’s notice, the cyclist, Emmiwuks, had been tweeting about his achievement. He eventually succeeded but his hopes were dashed after the singer told him to turn around because he was not around.
Turn around I’m not home https://t.co/wxhY2A7Owm

Emmiwuks, who had already spent eight days on his journey, refused to let up. He responded to his idol’s tweet saying, “Am not going back Boss I must present my gift to you @davido Benin state heading to Ogun any moment from now..”
