But he was unable to meet with the singer due to massive security that milled around the Adelekes in the ancient town of Ede.

Roid told Legit.ng:

"If I’m able to meet with Davido, I will ask him to lead my path to greatness, because greatness runs in his DNA.
"He should support my plans as I want to do a cycling fundraising for sick kids in Nigeria. My plans was to start August 1st and end it 30th August."

The young man disclosed that he got to Ede on Monday, July 18, a day after the result was announced.

On how he was able to accomplish the arduous task, he stated:

"I left immediately I heard the announcement on Sunday 17th around 9am by INEC which was a little bit late to the time I usually leave any location for a long distance journey, there was sun already.
"I had a punctured tire which I had to fix myself, it also delayed me, took about 1 hour of my limited time. The elevated areas were much. I was stopped by the police for questioning.
"With this, I couldn’t get to Osun that same day, I had to sleep in Ibadan at a friend's place. On 18th, I got to Ede. Locating the house was a little bit tedious as I didn’t get the address online, I had to pay bike men to lead me there."
