In a recent episode of the ABTalks podcast, Nigerian Afrobeats superstar, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, opened up about his feelings of disappointment following a disagreement with his wife, Chioma. The singer expressed regret over the incident, acknowledging that he could have handled the situation better.
Davido’s candid reflection came in response to a question from the podcast host, Anas Bukhash, who asked him about the moment he was most disappointed in himself. The artist shared, “Probably, when me and my wife [Chioma] first had like a little rift. I thought I could have done better because she is an amazing person. I think that was the only time I messed up. But I have fixed it.”
The singer’s relationship with Chioma has been a subject of public interest since they started dating in late 2017. Despite the ups and downs, the couple has managed to maintain their bond. After months of speculation, Davido publicly confirmed his marriage to his longtime partner, Chioma, and expressed his commitment to their relationship.
In his words, “I have never ever taken this kind of break. Just being away and I have had a lot to think about. It was a time to rest, reflect, a lot of family time, time to make music again. I remade the album… Had a tour already, but we did the album, I travelled, I am married.”
The news of Davido’s marriage to Chioma made rounds in December, weeks after the loss of their son, Ifeanyi, in October 2022. The singer has since settled his rift with his wife, indicating that he has taken steps to mend the situation and move forward together.
