The Senator representing Benue Northeast, Emmanuel Udende, has commended the zealous Davido fan, Emmanuel Myam, aka Emmiwuks, who embarked on a road trip from Benue State to Lagos on his bicycle to meet the singer.
Davido had on Thursday told the fan to “turn around” that he wasn’t presently in the country but when the fan insisted on continuing his journey. But Davido on Friday asked him to send his account number for a token and also pledged to meet him when he returns.
Senator Udende reacting on his Facebook account, on Friday, commended the young fan for his resilience.
He promised to support Emmiwuks’ music career and also host him at his office in the National Assembly when lawmakers resume from recess.
He said, “In the past few days, I have seen a lot of updates on social media platforms concerning the passion and desire of a young man who wishes to meet and present a gift to his music Idol and Afrobeat star, David Adeleke (Davido).
“I wish to applaud the resilience of Master Emmanuel Myam with the stage name Emmiwuks, who is my constituent from Ukum Local Government Area of Benue State, for embarking on this journey from Benue to Lagos on a bicycle to meet Davido, the Afrobeat superstar.
“As it has been my policy to encourage young people to pursue their dreams, I wish to encourage Master Emmanuel in his chosen career which I have been told is music.
“I will also host him in my office at the National Assembly when he returns from Lagos and we are also back from recess so that we can look at the areas I can intervene to make him excel in his chosen career.
“Ensure you are a proud ambassador of Our constituency and Benue state at large when you meet the music icon.”
