Veteran Daddy Showkey Reveals How He Was Almost Burnt Alive with His Gang

Veteran Daddy Showkey reveals how his involvement in gang operations in Ikorodu, Lagos State, nearly resulted in his death by lynching.

According to him, he and three young men discovered a gun in a refuse dump and began terrorizing residents with it until one fateful day, when they were apprehended and nearly lynched.

Speaking in the preview for the next episode of the podcast “The Honest Bunch,” Daddy Showkey revealed how, when they were miraculously saved, revealed that he and his group were already tied up and ready to be set on fire.

The seasoned singer asserted that anyone could achieve greatness if they put in the necessary effort, given his ability to rise to legendary stature despite a difficult upbringing.

He said: “I was in a gang back in the day. I won’t lie. Some of us found a gun that we used to pick valuables from a refuse dump in Ikorodu. We started using the gun to terrorize 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.
