Despite criticism, Osun State Governor Senator Ademola Adeleke has vowed not to quit dancing.
He claimed that his childhood ambition was to become an entertainer.
Governor Adeleke told News Central Africa that he couldn’t realize his objective since his father forced him to pursue an academic profession.
He said: “Music makes me feel so good. I love music. I love dancing. In fact, I was supposed to be in the entertainment business. During the time we were growing up, our father believed that you had to be a doctor or lawyer; you had to go to school.”
He said while schooling in the United States, he went to dancing competitions and won dollars as prize money.
Adeleke said: “I still have it [dancing] in me. I do not believe that because I am a governor or when I was a senator it should stop. When we have get-togethers, everyone would be stuck up.”
He warned critics to desist from trying to control his life, adding that there is time for everything, including dancing.
He, however, clarified that dancing will not stop him from performing his duties as governor.
Fondly called ‘dancing governor’, Adeleke is the father of popular Nigerian musicians B-Red and Shina Rambo, and uncle to famous singer, Davido.
