Singer Davido says he sees his mother in her fiancee Chioma.
The ‘Fia’ hitmaker remembers when his mother died of cardiac arrest when he was about ten years old.
He told Nigerian media pundits that;
“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 added that if she was alive, he’d have treated her to the best life can offer.
“ONE THING I ALWAYS WISH FOR IS THAT SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN ALIVE. I WOULD HAVE BOUGHT HER A LOT OF DIAMONDS AND HOUSES BUT SHE KNEW THAT I WAS GOING TO BE GREAT.
EVERY SUNDAY, THERE WAS ALWAYS A PARTY. MY MOTHER WAS FROM BENIN. I THINK I AM MORE LIKE MY MOTHER; I INHERITED HER AGILITY. SHE HELPED SO MANY PEOPLE THAT TO DATE, I GO TO SOME PLACES AND PEOPLE WOULD TELL ME WHAT MY MOTHER DID FOR THEM.
Davido was rumoured to have separated from his fiancee after cheating allegations. Early this year, Chioma shut down claims that the singer was abusive.
Recently, the singer bought a Lamborgini and announced the news in a caption that read,
I COULD GET USED TO THIS….. TO GOD BE THE GLORY !!!!
