Nigerian singer Davido has spilled more about his personal life and family in a new interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu.
The father of three spoke about his two baby mamas, his fiancee Chioma, his children, late mom, and many other things.
Speaking about his young family, Davido said he has been able to keep them together through the love that they all have for their children. Although they have misunderstandings, they always sort it out because of their children.
The Blow My Mind crooner also stated that he keeps his children together by ensuring that they talk and spend time with one another.
He also noted that having his son Ifeanyi changed him as he knows that he would have to set a good example to him as a man.
Davido also shed some light on how he met Chioma and how much she means to him. He revealed that one of his friends introduced them to each other seven years ago and they became friends but the duo started dating five years ago.
Speaking on his wedding plans to his fiancee, Chioma, the singer said that the Coronavirus pandemic spoilt his plans.
He said, “Honestly, Corona messed plans up because it was meant to be in July. I have decided it would be 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 continued, “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 said that his fiancee doesn’t want the limelight but he always drags her into it. He also noted that there are traits of his mum in Chioma that makes him love her.
According to him, he trusts her enough to leave his other children with her and be sure that she would not maltreat them.
On his mum, Davido said that he was between the ages of 10 and 11 when she died of cardiac arrest. According to him, her death affected him as she was everything to him.
According to him, his mum, who was from Benin liked to throw parties and help people. He noted that he took those traits from her.
“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.”
Davido stated that when she died, he had not come to the full understanding of what it meant as he was still young.
