Iconic Nigerian singer and boxing enthusiast, Daddy Showkey, has slammed boxing promoters that brought Floyd Mayweather into the country. 

The singer’s grouse stems from the fact that the boxing promoters shunned Nigerians who have been trying to bring the sport back to life.

In a video posted on his verified Instagram account, the singer said, “Those promoting boxing in our country are stupid. There are people that have been supporting boxing, promoting boxing; doing everything to bring boxing back to life in our country. 

“You will bring international boxers and celebrate them but you will not take people that have been celebrating boxing to come there. At least, to carry the campaign. You take them to government officials that do not support boxing; those that do not support our sports in our country. Those that have killed our sports generally. No be mumu una be? You are stupid people.”

In another video, the singer stated the reason for his reaction. The Galala dancer stated that his passion for boxing made him utter the words he did. He noted that boxing has been neglected in Nigeria. 

He said, “My reason for making the video I made is this; I have a passion for boxing. Everybody that knows me knows about my passion and love for boxing. We come from a country whereby we celebrate other people’s success but we do not celebrate our own.”
