Davido has denied claims of a hate campaign against the Igbo.
Drama started today when a blog tweeted the comment in which the singer allegedly bragged that his billionaire father could buy over the entire Igbo land. And the singer is said to have also allegedly dissed the Biafra secessionist movement.
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.Only recently, he was the target of attack by men suspected to be cult members in Londo. One if these men took to social media to threaten the singer.
Davido did not address that situation. However, many people, especially his fans, are relieved to see that he has dissociated himself from the possibly photoshopped hate speech.
