Speaking during an interview with National Assembly TV, the senator who showed off his dancing prowess in the viral video stated that dancing is a form of exercise to him adding that he loves to dance.
The uncle to Nigerian singer, Davido, born David Adeleke and father to artistes, Sina Rambo and B-Red said: “Like we normally say there is time for everything. There is time to laugh. There is time to cry but most of the time I love dancing and I take it as an exercise. My kids got it(dancing) from me, Sina Rambo and B-Red and of course my nephew Davido. I train them and as a matter of fact, they will tell me that Dad, we can’t catch up with you. I love dancing.”
He further stated that he became the face of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, some years ago because of his dance skills.
“When I joined APC briefly, I campaigned with Aregbesola and my late brother. As a matter of fact, we put what is called interload into the campaIgn because you go to most campign, it is so dry but when you put an interload into a campaign where you dance, laugh and everything, As a matter of fact, I became the face of the campaign.
“Without me, there is no campaign. Now that they messed up and I went to my former party, they are now using it against me that I am dancing. I even danced with my daughter. They never knew it was my daughter. They thought it was someone else but I told them that that is a lesson to all fathers, You have to be close to your daughters. I am very close to my children and that is why I dance.”
