It appears that Davido might not have gotten a chieftaincy title after all.
Recently, news went viral about the singer receiving a chieftaincy title in Ibusa land, Delta State.
Popular nightclub boss, Cubana Chiefpriest, shared the news on his verified Instagram page and congratulated the music star.
However, new reports suggest that a title was not conferred but Davido was adopted into a respected family.
A popular Facebook page in Nigeria bearing the name Nigerians published a statement believed to have been issued by the Uwolo of Ibuzor, Amaechi Nwaenie debunking the earlier reports.
Amaechi Nwaenie in the statement explained that the music star was not conferred with a title, but was simply adopted into the family of his friend.
He stated that the father of Davido’s friend, Chief Fred Ajudua, had invited him over to his house, because he had plans to host the music star.
Uwolo of Ibuzor said while he was at the residence, Ajudua shared his intention to adopt Davido into his family, so as to strengthen the bond of friendship between his son, Bobo, and the celebrity singer.
“While in his residence, Onwa said he wanted to adopt Davido into the Ajudua’s family to straighten the strong friendship between his son Bobo and Davido. I recall someone jokingly asked Onwa if he wanted to give chieftaincy title to Davido’ to which Onwa said a categorical no”, Nwaenie explained.
Nwaenie revealed he had to debunk the false reports so he would not be a party to any act likely to desecrate, denigrate or offend the tradition of the Ibuzor people.
