It would be recalled that Davido released his fourth studio album, Timeless, some weeks ago which contained 17 music tracks.
Concerns, however, were raised about the lyrics of ‘Unavailable’ which was termed homophobic against the LGBTQ+ community.
The verse in question says;
“So, make no body para oh Say,
I carry woman (woman)
Shey na man wey I for carry?
Fuck all the rumours Abi,
e get when I talk say “I be pastor”
A Twitter user identified as @mazpa took to the platform to condemn Davido for spitting in the face of the LGBTQ+ community with his lyrics. The Tweep wrote:
“That low-key homophobic lyric in Davido’s “Unavailable”. Hmmm. For context, Davido was referring to promiscuity rumors. So the context here is promiscuity. But in his defense he asks “shey na man wey I for carry” as though he was being berated for being straight. Now what does promiscuity have to do with sexual orientation??”
In reaction, many explained that Davido wasn’t being homophonic with the lyrics. See below:
