Fans Take To Street, Beg Davido to Return Online
During Davido’s absence from the music and entertainment industries, many devoted followers tried various tactics to persuade the celebrity to return online. From carrying “juju” to making short clips showing how much they miss his online presence.
And now, some of the Nigerian music star’s supporters have already organized a rally to demand that he keep his pledge to return to social media.
The DMW, who has been missing since the end of last year, said he would be more approachable starting in March 2023 and most likely release new music. The second week of the month has already passed, but the “FEM” crooner hasn’t shown online. Eventually, a group of women decided they could no longer wait and organized a rally to pressure the celebrated singer into fulfilling their long-anticipated request.
In a video uploaded online, drivers who saw the women strolling down the street stopped and briefly spoke with them. The group carrying posters honoring Davido claimed they did it to remind them of the pledge.
Davido’s absence came as a result of his son’s death. David Ifeanyi Adeleke Jr., the first son and third child of Davido drowned in the swimming pool at his father’s Banana Island home on October 31, 2022. He was three years old at the time of his death. Police questioned members of Davido’s domestic staff. Once one domestic worker initially went to the police station to report the drowning tragedy, eight domestic workers were invited to the station for questioning. As a result, six employees were discharged, and two were kept in custody after the police probe.
Since then, the Superstar and his wife Chioma have been away from social media for the time being though Davido has reportedly been unfollowing several of his associates, as reported by sources. His March return, nevertheless, remains eagerly awaited.
