Nigerian Music Superstar, David Adeleke popularly known by his stage name as “Davido” and “Baddest” by his fans could be labelled ‘missing’ from the social spheres.
The ‘Blow My Mind’ Crooner has been MIA for a while now and despite claiming he needs some ‘cleansing’ to do, what could really be the reason for his hibernation?
Artistes who have projects and albums on the way do not usually go off the grid in this manner; instead they stay more to generate awareness.
A good example is fellow Nigerian Artiste, Adekunle Gold who has been creating awareness for his upcoming project ‘AG BABY’ which would be released in a matter of days.
Davido, son of Nigerian business mogul, Adedeji Adeleke has however disappeared and with his disappearance, a series of controversies and questionable occurrences abound.
The Chioma-Instagram Saga
Among these controversies is unfollowing his heartthrob, Chioma on Instagram.
It is unclear as to why he unfollowed so everyone he was following including his fiancée and football superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo inclusive but could Baddest be going through some sort of midlife crisis?
A Better Time Album
The musician who has had some big gigs with international artistes announced few months back that his 3rd Studio Album will be coming out in July 2020.
The Album which is a spinoff of his 2nd Studio Album, A Good Time will be called “A Better Time (ABT)” and is expected to hit the entertainment industry later this month.
But we do not know where Davido is!
New House in Banana Island
Before completely going off the grid, he bought a house for himself in Lagos’ most expensive locale – Banana Island.
Shortly after, he announced he has changed his number and nobody should reach him as he needed to do some cleansing.
The musician lamented that all his life he has put people before him and he needed to do some things for himself. That much is true. Davido has given the impression that he is a selfless human dedicating his career to helping young and upcoming musicians.
Among those he has pulled up to stardom are Mayorkun, Dremo, Peruzzi and so on who are in his record label.
However, it is also important to shed some light into some occurrences that led to his disappearance.
News filtered in a few months back that claimed he had an affair with a woman abroad who had just given birth to his child. Since neither he nor any of his crew came out to confirm the news, one could not know.
Although it sounds true, there have been a whole lot of rumours concerning the man himself over the years and one could never be sure.
Another event that occurred before his disappearance was Peruzzi being accused of rape/. In deed that looked like something Peruzzi could have done if one judges from what he posted some years back on his social media. In these posts, Peruzzzi clearly portrays himself as a rape apologist.
Davido unfollowed Peruzzi immediately the event came to life. No time!
Burna vs Davido
There was also a rumoured altercation with fellow Nigerian singer, Burna Boy in which the ‘Ye’ crooner allegedly hinted that Davido was not talented and only enjoys fame because of his father’s riches.
“Chioma Weds Davido”
Let us also not forget that we were expecting a wedding from our favourite couple. Well it’s still July, anything can still happen but the wait is getting loooong.
The wait for the long awaited wedding and A Better Time.
Other occurrences in Davido’s life are the birth of his son from his fiancée, Chioma and the fiancée herself being diagnosed of Corona Virus and recovering.
It has been a very eventful year for Baddest and a blockbuster album in ‘A Better Time’ would be the best response to everything he has gone through.
We do not know where he is, but we hope he is fine and when he comes back to take his rightful place at the top in the Nigerian Music Industry, he takes no prisoners!
