JUST IN: Davido Did Not Get Conferred A Chieftaincy Title!

The news of Nigerian pop star, David Adeleke aka Davido being conferred a chieftaincy title has been making the rounds recently on every news portal. But there seems to be a problem.

Reports making the rounds recently say different. The singer was not conferred a title but instead was adopted into the said family.

The report says the move 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 Dacido. 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.
