The Assurance crooner received a hero’s welcome upon his arrival for admission. Nigerian Comedian AY suggested that the government changes the service name to Davido Youth Service Corps (DYSC).

This is @davidoofficial arriving NYSC camp as a Corper. Who is serving who? No number one citizen of Nigeria don get this kind welcome for NYSC camp before. Please permit me to call this DYSC (Davido Youth Service Corp). More importantly, I am so proud of Davido. Education is our passport to the future, no matter the amount you have in your bank account. I hope those who are planning to run away from school to become a Davido is seeing this?
Davido has been accused of breaking various rules such as bringing his car to the orientation camp ground, engaging in private practice of personal activities, leaving camp without permission from the authorities and participating in partisan politics.
He was actively involved in the campaigns of his uncle, Demola Adeleke, a gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State, Nigeria.
Davido confirmed the news in the comment section of a post made by Nigerian music promoter, Adesegun Adeosun, popularly known as Smade who announced the end of his orientation program, and got a letter of recommendation.
“Naso dem cancel my own.” Davido commented.
