ollywood actor, Uche Maduagwu, has threatened to arrest said American-born Nigerian singer, David Adedeji Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, if he does not pay bride price of a 27-year-old Chioma Rowland, who is mother to his third child and only son, Ifeanyi Adeleke Jr.
The actor who appears to be tired of Davido’s ‘off and on’ love has decided to give him a deadline to seal his marriage with Chioma Rowland.
According to Uche, Davido can either marry her or stand aside for another person to marry her; he needs to ‘stand strong’ for his ‘assurance’.
An excerpt from his post reads: “I GO PETITION THE INSPECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE TO ARREST 0.B.0 IF HE NO PAY CHIOMA #BRIDEPRICE IN 3 MONTHS TIME, PLEASE NOBODY SHOULD BEG ME BECAUSE | HAVE ALREADY MADE UP MY MIND ON THIS MATTER. THIS IS SO WRONG, YOU DEY CHOP HER DELICIOUS FOOD ALL THE TIME”
DAVIDO AND CHIOMA’S RELATIONSHIP HISTORY
Chioma and Davido started dating in late 2017 and went exclusive the following year.
Davido and Chioma have long been a ‘goals’ relationship for many on Twitter, but fans aren’t so sure anymore.
Rumours of a split between the pair have been around for months now, after Chioma reportedly stopped wearing her engagement ring. Neither parties spoke on the rumours, leaving fans unsure of their relationship status.
The pair became friends in 2013, but began dating in 2015. Davido spoke about the start of their relationship in a 2020 interview, saying: ““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.”
However, the couple didn’t go public until 2017, when Chioma starred in Davido’s music video for Assurance. Since then, Davido said to The Juice that the video began a spiral of hate towards both Chioma and her family from fans: “Even her parents use to get hate texts. It affected our relationship a lot because, before the Assurance video, stuff was so cool. The relationship became a public relationship.”
After they introduced their families in September 2019, they soon became engaged in Lagos. The wedding was set to take place in July 2020 but was put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, which sparked rumours of a split.
However, in an interview, Davido explained: “Honestly, Coronavirus messed plans up because it was meant to be in July. I have decided it will be some time 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.”
In October of 2019, they welcomed their first son together: David Adedeji Ifeanyi Adeleke Jr.
