‘I was almost burnt alive with my gang’ – Daddy Showkey

Veteran Nigerian singer Daddy Showkey has recounted how he was almost lynched to death when he was involved in gang activities in Ikorodu, Lagos State.

According to him, he and some young men found a gun at a refuse dump and started terrorising people with it until one fateful day, when they were caught and almost lynched.

Speaking in the teaser of the upcoming episode of ‘The Honest Bunch’ podcast, Daddy Showkey recalled that he and his gang were already tied up waiting to be set ablaze when they were miraculously saved.

The veteran singer said if he could attain legendary status despite his turbulent childhood experience, anyone could achieve greatness if they worked towards it.

He said: “I was in a gang back in the day. I won’t lie. Some of us found a gun where we used to pick valuables from refuse dump in Ikorodu. We started using the gun to terrorise the area.

“One day, when we were out in our usual style, someone saw us and started screaming, ‘thieves, thieves, thieves.’ Then we started running, but we were apprehended. They tied us up. They were about to burn us but we were saved miraculously.

“I am a living testimony for every young person, because if I can be alive today and still become Daddy Showkey, then there’s hope for everyone.”

He disclosed that one of his gang members was later caught and lynched to death.
