A lot of Nigerian celebrities and showbiz stars have been quite vocal, expressing their thoughts about a “free and fair” election while some openly campaigned for the candidates of their choice.
Sadly, not all starts have decided to give their vote to any candidate as most of them are out of town to headline concerts in other parts of the world. Here a list of notable stars that missed the election:
HKN boss, Davido left the shores of Nigeria on Friday, March 27, 2015 in a private jet along with members of his HKN Gang which includes B-Red, Deekay and Kamal Ajiboye. He’s billed to headline the 5th edition of the Afrobeat festival in Kenya, thus he won’t be voting either Buhari or Jonathan.
He departed Lagos on Thursday, March 26, 2015 to headline the Dance Afrique concert in London. On his arrival in UK, he’s been sharing pictures of his media rounds in London. He shared photo of himself and Tiwa Savage who came out on stage to support him.
Along with Flavour, Paul and Peter Okoye are also listed as headlining acts for Dance Afrique concert in London.
Starboy boss, Wizkid is yet to return from his trip to Dubai where he performed on Thursday March 26, 2015 at the Industry Nite, Dubai. After his performance on Thursday, he hosted a private Yacht party on Friday at the Dubai Marina Yacht club with his artiste, L.A.X.

She’s a co-host of the Dance Afrique concert in London, so she joins Flavour and Psquare in London.

On March 12, 2015, the rapper left Nigeria for South Africa, he spent a few days there then he headed to the United States for the SXSW Festival in Houston. The rapper is currently in Atlanta.

Pretty female disc jockey, DJ Cuppy also arrived Kenya in a private jet yesterday for her performance at the Pan African Finale of the Airtel/Trace music star to be headlined by Senegal-born American superstar, Akon.
Nudity queen, Maheeda doesn’t really care much about politics, she’s in Australia working out in her pants and highs heels and is nowhere near Nigeria’s borders to participate in the election.
9. DJ Spinall
Fondly called ‘The Cap’, DJ Spinall is on tour of the United States. As recently as last night, he performed at Club Zanzibar in Houston and he won’t be voting surely.
