The musician, whose real name is Habeeb Okikiola, had previously sponsored the reelection campaign of Osun State Governor Gboyega Oyetola during a visit.
He had backed Tinubu for president at his meeting with Oyetola in Osogbo, the state capital.
In a now-viral video, he also flaunted money that was allegedly provided to him by Oyetola.
