Why I didn’t wed Chioma this year – Davido
Popular Nigerian singer, David Adeleke, better known as Davido, has revealed that the coronavirus pandemic ruined his wedding plans with fiancee, Chioma Rowland.
Davido stated this in an interview with Ebuka on Bounce Radio live.
The couple got engaged in September last year and many believed they would have tied the knot by now.
However, Davido said their wedding was supposed to take place in July 2020, but that the pandemic prevented it from happening.
“Honestly, Corona messed plans up because it was meant to be in July. I have decided probably sometime next year. For now, I want her to work on her business while I work on my album and the kids. I want everything to balance first” he said
Speaking on how long he and Chioma have known each other, the singer said: “I have known Chioma for about seven years. We have been dating for about five years. Lati introduced me to Chioma. We went to the same school, Babcock University. We started as friends but I got so used to her and she got so used to me as well. She is a great cook as well.”
The singer also spoke about his late mum, whom he disclosed died of Cardiac arrest.
“I was about 10 to 11 years old when she died. She died on my father’s birthday. Honestly, it was just cardiac arrest. Even if it was going to happen, I would not have known because I was about 10 or 11 years old. She was not really sick. She used to get sick once in a while but it was nothing serious.
“I often say that I see my mother in Chioma. I did not grow up with my mother. I can hardly remember what happened when I was that young.”
