Veteran Nigerian singer, Daddy Showkey has lambasted the boxing promoters who brought Floyd Mayweather to Nigeria.
The former boxing champion arrived Nigeria in a customized private jet over the weekend to promote his exhibition match against Don Moore in Dubai.
He also paid a courtesy visit to APC Presidential Hopeful and Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, at his Abuja residence on Monday morning, May 9.
There, he promised to set up a boxing academy in Nigeria to build young fighters like himself.
“The ultimate plan is to find the next Mayweather. I want to work with kids, I will come over to meet and talk to make sure we are all on the same page, and slowly start building these fighters.
“We just want to help. It’s all about giving back, helping the youths and the young generation coming up.” he said.
Reacting to the visit, Daddy Showkey speaking in a video shared on his Instagram page, expressed outrage at the promoters who organized Mayweather’s trip to Nigeria.
He criticized them for failing to carry along local boxers who have been championing boxing in Nigeria.
According to him, Mayweather could have met with them instead of visiting Amaechi – a politician who has never shown support for boxing.
