Davido in times past has taken beefs with individuals and addressed it in a song and we think that’s the beauty of the music act. We compiled a list of 4 times Davido addressed people in a song.
1. CAROLINE DANJUMA
Caroline Danjuma stepped on Davido’s nerves when she accused the singer of being involved in the tragic death of one of the DMW boss friend, Tagbo, who reports claimed to be Caroline’s babydaddy. The actress accused Davido and his friends of dumping Tagbo’s corpse at the hospital before fleeing the scene.
Some of Davido’s friends were arrested and Davido was as well invited by the Police a couple of times, it had to take CCTV footage and a strong PR team to get Davido out of the mess and he didn’t take long before he went and addressed Caroline Danjuma on a song.
He went ahead to diss Caroline in his song titled ‘FIA’ where he dropped a remarkable line:
‘Caroline save your drama, i don’t need it for a Soap Opera’
Davido may be at his peace right now with his first babymama, Iya Imade, but it wasn’t entirely smooth from onset as both parties went on full war on social media right after the child was born.
Davido alongside his family members were at one time prevented from travelling to Dubai with his daughter, Imade Adeleke as Sophia insisted she was going on the trip with them, a decision Davido’s family didn’t seem convenient with at the time.
Davido took to the remix of Humblesmith’s Osinachi remix to take shots at Sophia, where he used lines like:
‘No be by force to go Dubai, abi na wetin cause the fight?’
3. NIGERIAN POLICE FORCE
Davido’s relationship with the members of the Nigerian Police force can be said to be a somewhat bitter-sweet one as he’s been involved in one or two drama with the Force.
The first time he got into a problem with them was when on August 1, 2017, a video went into circulation on social media in which some men alleged to be policemen were seen shooting in the air on the street in a moving vehicle. It was later revealed that the owner of the car was Davido and the officers involved were attached to him. This was revealed after Davido posted the video of his police escorts shooting in the air, thereby causing commotion along the streets of Lagos.
The incident was so messy that the The Head Public Complaints Rapid Response Unit (PCRRU), ACP Abayomi Shogunle had to release a statement and the police officers involved where eventually arrested.
A second time was his ordeal with the Police when he was questioned over Tagbo’s death following Caroline Danjuma fingering him to be involved in the cause of the deceased. In his new song, Davido also addressed ‘Oga Police’ on the song where he dropped a line that read:
‘Hola Hola, Mr Olopa, i’m not here to cause wahala’ a line that seemed like he didn’t want to be involved in any more Police drama.
4. DELE MOMODU
Ovation International Magazine owner, Dele Momodu also got on the bad side of Davido when he intervened in Davido and his babymama, Sophia Momodu’s scandal.
Davido’s first babymama, Sophia Momodu is a family member of Dele Momodu and by extension helped Sophia in preventing Davido from flying out his daughter to dubai while back by claiming Davido didn’t have rights to take the child away from the country. A small drama ensued at the airport and it caused a great deal of embarassment for Davido’s family.
Davido wasn’t happy with this development and didn’t take long before he went called out on Dele Momodu on Falz’s song ‘Bahd, Baddo, Baddest’ where he dropped the line:
‘Mr Dele na my boy, Dele na my boy’ a line that caused so much controversy at the time.
Well, Davido’s career has not been void of drama as it appears the singer enjoys every single time it happens and even knows just how to get out of it and address it each time it happens.
