David Adeleke, a.k.a Davido, Nigerian Music Superstar

Update! Davido was not conferred with a chieftaincy title

Following the report that went viral over the weekend that DMW label boss, David Adeleke Davido has been conferred with a Chieftaincy title in Delta state, a new report has claim otherwise.

The report stated that Davido was not conferred with a chieftaincy title but was adopted in to the family.

According to the report any move to have conferred the artiste with a chieftaincy title would have desecrated or offended the lbuzor tradition.

Read the report as seen on Facebook below:

“My attention has been drawn to the trending story about a purported conferment of a chieftaincy title on Davido.

~ Uwolo Amaechi Nwaenie.

For the avoidance of doubt, l want to state that l was a guest at Chief Barister Fred Ajudua’s (Onwa) residence on his invitation to host his son’s best friend – Davido.

I had no prior knowledge of planned event for the day until i got to Onwa’s residence. While in his residence, Onwa said he wanted to adopt Davido into the Ajudua’s family to straighten the strong friendship between his son Bobo and Davido. I recall someone jokingly asked Onwa if he wanted to ”give chieftaincy title to Davido’ to which Onwa said a categorical No.

As the Uwolo of Ibuzor, l cannot knowingly offend our cultural sensibility or be a party to any act likely to desecrate, denigrade or offend lbuzor tradition in any way, shape or form. What happened today in Chief Bar Fred Ajudua’s residence was an adoption into the family of the Ajudua and definitely not a conferment of chieftaincy title. Any misconception or misunderstanding of the process is highly regretted. It was a great day of friendship and celebration between two great families and calls for measured reaction from those who relied strictly on social media videos and pictures.

Long live Ibuzor.
