Neither Davido nor his management has spoken out on the issue.
This comes shortly after Makinde apologised to the general public, saying he takes "responsibility for that lapse in judgement", following a whirlpool of backlashes that trailed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)'s 'unification rally' in Oyo.
The southwest region of the PDP had on Wednesday, March 18, held a rally in Ibadan, Oyo state capital at Mapo Hall to welcome a score of defectors including former governor of Osun state Olagunsoye Oyinlola and former deputy governor of Oyo state Taofeek Arapaja.
Meanwhile, as the spread of COVID-19 also known as coronavirus continues to spread in Nigeria at an alarming rate, many Nigerians have been thrown into fear, many of whom have resorted to protecting themselves in various ways.
Celebrities are not left out. However, a recent photo of Nigerian singer, Yinka Ayefele, has proven to Nigerians that not so many know how well they need to protect themselves. In the photo, Ayefele is seen using a handkerchief as a substitute face mask.
