"How I was almost burnt alive with my gang" - Singer Daddy Showkey reveals (Video)

Popular veteran Nigerian singer, Daddy Showkey, has narrated how he was almost killed when he was in a gang in Ikorodu, Lagos State.

Daddy Showkey, while appearing in the teaser of an episode of ‘The Honest Bunch’ podcast, stated that 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 burnt alive.

According to the singer, he and his gang were already tied up waiting to be set ablaze when they were miraculously saved.

The famous singer said that if he could become famous despite having a rough youth, then anyone could do the same if they worked hard.

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.
