Youths of ENDSARS protesters display the Nigerian flag and a placard in a crowd in support of the ongoing protest against the harassment, killings and brutality of The Nigerian Police Force Unit called Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in the Lagos State House of Assembly on October 13, 2020.

#EndSARS: These Videos of Protesters Singing Davido's 'FEM' Will Make Your Day

Following continued protests against police brutality in Nigeria through SARS, it seems Nigerian youth have adopted Davido's latest single 'FEM' as their anthem.

Protests in Nigeria continue as the youth call upon President Muhammadu Buhari and his government to bring an end to all forms of police brutality in the West African country. While the Nigerian government has reportedly disbanded the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) following the massive #EndSARS protests, its replacement of the unit with the Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT) has Nigerians skeptical. It appears SARS has simply "rebranded" (as it has many times before) and thus Nigerians have picked up the #EndSWAT call as part of efforts to acquire real change.

Amid the ongoing protests, which were sparked by the recent death of a civilian man at the hands of SARS, Nigerian youth have found numerous ways to keep their spirits going as each day of fierce protesting goes by. One of these ways has been adopting Nigerian superstar Davido's latest single single titled "Fem" and whose music video for the track dropped at the beginning of September this year. Numerous videos have emerged on social media showing protesting Nigerians dancing and singing along to the infectious and upbeat number. They are certainly going to make your day––they've made ours!

Davido himself, along with several other Nigerian artists including Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, Don Jazzy, Lady Donli and Burna Boy have all shown their support for the protests both on and offline. Davido even managed to secure a closed-door meeting with the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to which a number of Nigerians showed contention expressing that the artist should not speak on their behalf.

Take a look at some of the joyous videos below:
