Nigerian pop-star, Davido has cancelled his anticipated US tour to conclude his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) orientation programme.
The singer’s Batch B set is scheduled to end its three-week orientation exercise on Monday, September 17.

“Refunds will be made available at point of purchase. Davido and his team are working hard to reschedule all dates plus add new dates in the near future. I love guys and see you soon.
“I apologize to all my fans but duty calls. But I promise new dates would be announced for Houston Dallas LA and San Francisco. We will reschedule and add more dates. Shout out to all the fans who sold out each city so far.”
The music star took to his Instagram page on Tuesday, August 28, 2018, where he shared a photo of himself wearing the traditional NYSC kit.
“Otondo OBO … #Nysc .. tying up every loose end !” he captioned the photo.
