Speaking in an interview with Giovani Caleb on the 3FM Drive show Friday, November 13, Davido described the late former Ghanaian leader as a legend.
“J.J Rawlings is a legend. My crazy experience with him was in 2014 when I saw him get out of his car to buy from the shop at the fuel station with no security detail.
“I was shocked but it made me realised how Ghanaians loved him and how he also loved and trusted his people to the extent that he walked freely in town and he felt safe knowing he is loved.”
Mr Rawlings died at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital on Thursday November 12.
He was 73 years.
Other Ghanaian greats like Kojo Antwi, Ben Brako, and Amakye Dede have paid tribute to the man who became the first president of the Fourth Republic.
