A new report emerged on social media, affirmed that Nigerian singer, Davido, did not occupy any chief position.
Recall that on social media the news was circulated that Davido was awarded chieftain title of Ibusa, in Delta State, the birthplace of his lawyer, Prince.
According to new reports, the singer was not granted a title, but was adopted by that family. The report states that the measure 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.
