Ebola treatment meted to Davido in Cameroon

The stigmatisation of Nigerians travelling to different countries as a result of the Ebola Virus Disease has been meted out to music superstar, Davido.

NET gathered that Davido, who had been to a number of African countries since the outbreak in some West African countries, was turned back last week from neighbouring Cameroon.

‎A source that just came into Nigeria from Cameroon alleges that Davido’s chartered aircraft was turned back upon landing in Cameroon. NET could not immediately confirm if the pop star eventually travelled and was indeed turned back, but multiple sources confirmed to us he couldn’t make his event because flights originating from Nigeria were not cleared to land in that country. ‘His people tried different means, even attempting to go in through Ghana, but they met brick walls’, one insider told us.

His manager Kamal Ajiboye did not immediately respond to enquiries.

Travelling Nigerians, including celebs like Kunle Afolayan continue to be humiliated by immigration officers if at all they’re allowed in their host countries where flights from Nigeria are allowed.
