Senator Emmanuel Udende of Benue Northeast has praised Emmanuel Myam, aka Emmiwuks, a fervent Davido fan who rode his bicycle from Benue State to Lagos to meet the singer.
Davido had told the fan to “turn around” because he wasn’t in the country at the time, but when the fan insisted on continuing his journey, he asked him to send his account number as a token and also promised to meet him when he returned.
Senator Udende responded on his official Facebook page, commending the young fan for his fortitude.
He promised to support Emmiwuks’ music career and to host him in his National Assembly office when lawmakers return from recess.
“In the last few days, I’ve 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),” he explained.
“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.”
