Veteran Nigerian singer, Daddy Showkey, has said he took a break from music because assassins were after his life.
The ‘Galala’ singer who made his way to limelight from the Ghetto of Ajegunle, Lagos state, recalled how he left the music scene after he had an accident, injured his spinal cord and on his return was almost killed by paid assassins.
Recently, Daddy Showkey, in an interview with HipTv, said, “I left the music industry after I had a terrible accident and injured my spinal cord. I then went abroad to work on it.
“After I returned, I had to go back again for further treatment. As soon as I fully recovered and ready to hit the music scene again, assassins were after me.
“They came to my house to kill me but met my absence and ended up killing another person,”
the multi-talented singer recounted.
“As if that wasn’t enough, they still trailed me to a fuel station and shot me. So you see, it has been from one battle to another, but I’m fully back to take over the center stage,” he noted.
