Award-winning singer, David Adeleke, better known as Davido, has revealed that the parents of his fiancée, Chioma Rowland, were victims of cyber bullying when their relationship became public.
The father of three who is used to being in the news said he decided to be discrete about his
life because it appeared people were not happy with good news.
“People are wicked. When I released ‘Assurance’, everything blew up. Chioma was getting about 5000 messages from faceless people.
They were saying nonsense and sending hate messages. She went from being private to public overnight. Even her parents were getting hate text messages.
I didn’t know why people were hating. It became really bad and I thought that people did not like good things.
It affected our relationship a lot, so when I decided to go offline, we decided that we were not going to talk about our lives again.
Before the ‘Assurance’ video, our relationship was so cool. The dynamics changed when our relationship became public; it became like everybody’s relationship.
I remember when I was at an airport in Barcelona, a woman pushed me and warned that I must marry her in-law.
“I felt pressurised to officially get married before now but not anymore. At the end of the day, it is between us.
We would get married eventually but now is not the time. I am happy she is now working on making money.
We are just trying to make our foundation solid and not riding on the waves of what people want.”
