Pop singer Davido has revealed that the coronavirus pandemic ruined his plan to marry chef Chioma Rowland in July.
In a rare interview with media personality Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Bounce Radio live, the 27-year-old said the wedding will now hold next year.
“Honestly, Corona messed plans up because it was meant to be in July. I have decided it would be sometime next year,” he said.
“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.
“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.”
Davido’s proposed wedding with Chioma had made the headlines and was tagged #Assurance2020. It was rumoured that the duo had split over infidelity.
The ‘Fem’ singer said his mother died of cardiac arrest on his father’s birthday.
“I was about 10 to 11 years old when she died. She died on my father’s birthday. Honestly, it was just cardiac arrest. Even if it was going to happen, I would not have known because I was about 10 or 11 years old. She was not really sick. She used to get sick once in a while but it was nothing serious.
“I often say that I see my mother in Chioma. I did not grow up with my mother. I can hardly remember what happened when I was that young,” he said.
