‘I Would Never Make Such Statement!’- Davido Denies Tweeting Anti-Igbo statement
Davido has come out to clear the air about an Hate speech he allegedly made against the igbos.
Several screenshots of a comment in which the singer allegedly bragged that his billionaire father could buy over the entire Igbo land went round on the internet and had people talking. And the singer is said to have also allegedly dissed the Biafra secessionist movement.
“My father will just buy off the whole Igbo land. And their stupid Biafra will stop, stupid Igbos.” The fake tweet read
See the alleged tweet:
When contacted to confirm the authenticity of that tweet, Davido immediately shut it down. “I would never ever make such statement,” he said, “tell them to try again.”
This is the first time the singer, who often brags about his father’s wealth, would be linked to such hate speech.
At such a sensitive period in the nation when the agitation for secession by certain individuals is high, it was smart for Davido to distance himself as quickly as possible from the fake tweet.
The ‘Fall’ singer is currently on a world tour. Despite his busy schedule, Davido recently dropped his latest single ‘Pere’ featuring Young Thug and Rae Sremmurd. Davido has been teasing his latest single for months.
Just recently the singer copped a new Porsche 911 supercar worth N34m. See photos
