Pop star, Davido, is not a stranger to controversies. There is hardly any week that he isn’t in the news.
Yesterday (Saturday) morning, many of his fans and critics alike woke up to the ‘rude shock’ that the outspoken singer and Chioma had ‘unfollowed’ each other on social media app, Instagram. Immediately, the rumour mills went into overdrive and different tales began to emerge.
A blog, Gist Lovers Blog, claimed that Davido had got a fourth woman pregnant and to keep it secret, the DMW boss reportedly paid the lady a huge sum of money.
A social media user, @cutewalter, wrote, “So Davido and Chioma unfollowed each other on Instagram. See, if Davido and Chioma can break up, then it’s over for love.”
Another person, @UgwunnaEjikem, wrote, “Your parents have been happily married for decades but Chioma and Davido’s two or three year-relationship is your benchmark for what’s true love or what isn’t. Congratulations fan-in-law.”
An engineer, @tolutezzy_ wrote, “Davido wants to distract you all from the case with Goldenboy. I’m not sure him and Chioma have issues.”
However, even as the stories continued flying around, it emerged that the two lovebirds had started following each other again on Instagram.
Days before that, Davido had been in the eye of the storm. A certain Patrick Anyaene, aka King Patrick, the CEO of Goldenboy Entertainment, alleged that he earlier signed DMW artiste, Peruzzi, to his label. He went on to say that Davido gave Peruzzi a deal while the latter still had a contract with Goldenboy Entertainment. He claimed that he invested so much money on Peruzzi but didn’t enjoy the fruits of his labour.
The record label owner also alleged that Peruzzi wrote the song, Fia, when he was still signed to his label. He put out an audio recording of Peruzzi singing the song many years before Davido released his own version of the song. He said other songs released by DMW but owned by him are Ada, Risky and Mind.
In his first reaction to Anyaene’s claims, Davido wrote on his Instagram page, “One of the best things that ever happened to me and my career. So, if there’s a problem, it’s you, my guy.”
