Nigerians have taken to social media to react after music star, Davido paid a courtesy visit to the palace of the Osemawe of Ondo, Oba Adesimbo Victor Kiladejo Adenrele Ademefun Kiladejo.

Davido went along with an entourage that included his American friend who is alien to the Yoruba culture.

A video making the rounds on social media shows the moment Davido called the friend to greet the paramount Yoruba king.

The Afrobeats sensation is presently in Ondo State for a show, but he decided to pay homage to the traditional ruler before proceeding to other business.

Davido, while delivering a speech at the palace used the opportunity to introduce his friend from Atlanta, Georgia, USA. He revealed that the guy was visiting Africa and Nigeria for the first time.

When the young American walked up to where OBO stood, he was confused on what to do in the presence of the King and his wife, so he tried to wave. But the DMW boss corrected his friend who was unaware of the culture and instructed him to prostrate.

However, being that it was all new to him, the greeting went wrong as the Atlanta-born man could be seen kneeling on the ground with his two hands on the floor instead of prostrating.

The guy ended up waving at the Oba when he stood up as the Fem crooner continued to address them.

In his speech, Davido said he loves to bring his friends from the USA to Nigeria to that they can experience and explore the culture and further promised to entertain the people of Ondo State.

The facial expression of the traditional ruler was stoic but it seems he was not pleased or amused by what happened.

However, on the part of the queen she seemed to take the incident a little more lightly as she could be seen smiling.
