Davido, the Aftobeat sensation, recently provoked a flurry of emotions with a tweet praising fellow artist Tems.
His post, which expressed praise for Tems’ latest single “Me and You,” displayed his support with fire and love emojis.
However, this seemingly innocuous honor has elicited a wide range of reactions from netizens, ranging from amusement and anticipation to skepticism and criticism.
The reaction to Davido’s tweet was immediate and broad. Some fans and onlookers seemed protective of Tems, encouraging Davido to keep his distance from the rising star. One user specifically urged that Davido “leave our innocent Tems alone,” expressing concern about Davido’s intentions. This protective attitude for Tems resonates with her burgeoning audience, who see her as an unrivaled talent in the Nigerian music scene.
Among the protective comments, other netizens chose to be humorous, urging Davido to avoid Tems to avoid adding her to his list of romantic involvements.
This joke refers to Davido’s well-known past with multiple baby mamas, a subject that has repeatedly sparked popular curiosity and scandal in the Nigerian entertainment industry.
Not all reactions, however, were critical or protective. There was a perceptible buzz among fans who were looking forward to the two performers’ musical collaboration.
One ardent fan anticipated the possibilities of a Davido-Tems collaboration, anticipating that a combined single would be “so bomb.” This reaction emphasizes the appeal of combining Davido’s known hit-making prowess with Tems’ unique musical approach.
