Davido narrates terrifying ordeal with Police after he bought his first house in the US

During an interview, the award-winning musician Davido discussed his experiences with racial profiling in America. The OBO Crooner detailed how the police treated him after he bought a house in the United States in a viral video that went popular on social media. When he was around 23 or 24, the father of four said that he bought a property in an all-white area. He claims that two days after moving in, he heard a knock on the door from a detective type of police.

OBO remembered how they searched the entire property and questioned him about how he got the house, what he does for a living, and other topics.

Davido stated:

“I was the only African person in that neighborhood when I was 23 or 24, so I moved in, with a U-Haul truck behind me.” Two days later, cops arrived at the door, dressed as detectives. They came in and searched the entire house, asking me what I do because I paid cash for the place.”

The interviewer went on to say that UK rapper Stormzy had a similar experience when he bought a house in Chelsea, and she asked Davido what he thought of the episode.

Reacting, When white folks witness a black person accomplishing something wonderful and gaining money, they are perplexed and want to know how, the singer noted.

Davido stated:

“I don’t think they have an issue with it; it could just be surprising to them or they want to know how.” They are shocked when they see young black men not taking money, not killing, not robbing, but doing something great and making money and moving to a specific location.”

Davido went on to say that he believes it is the product of brainwashing since Americans are taught that there is nothing good in Africa.
