Davido’s father, Adedeji Adeleke almost suffered a loss as his house on Esther Adeleke street in Lekki, was ravaged by fire.
According to reports, the fire caught only a section of the house at about 1pm yesterday, but it was quickly put out by members of the fire service and thankfully it didn’t spread.
There were also no casualties.
Meanwhile, Nigerians are really laying into the singer today as they mocked him for not being part of the artistes being featured by Beyonce on the new Lion King album.
Beyonce is set to to feature the likes of Burna Boy, Mr Eazi and Yemi Alade on the new album and many Nigerians were quick to notice the absence of OBO and there was glee from many of his haters.
Twitter has been a veritable minefield as people have been steadily throwing jabs at the singer and claiming he wasn’t on the list of singers asked to collaborate due to his lack of talent.
“Beyoncé probably saw Davido trying to squeeze the whole 30BG in the studio and kicked them out” said one Twitter user.
“Wait o! Why is Davido not on the Beyonce Lion King album tracklist. Is it because of his ‘Whiskey’ freestyle??? Cos that makes sense, else not. Well the best in Nigeria and Africa are there. Starboy Wizkid, Tiwa savage, Burna, Eazi, Tekno, Yemi Alade, Shatta wale” said another.
There were those who were left unimpressed with the way people were reacting to the news like Osi Suave who said that the trolling of the Fia singer was uncalled for and unfair
“This habit of ridiculing someone because he or she doesnt meet our standards of what success should be has to go. Yes beyonce made an album with a lot of our faves and somehow it became about Davido not being on the project Like how does this make any sense”
We are certainly grateful that no lives were lost in the fire.
