DAVIDO ACCEPTS APOLOGY OVER FIGHT WITH REMA
Rema and Davido made the news after the Big Brother Naija season 5, Lockdown Edition, came to an end. The 71 days reality TV show that premiered on the 19th of July kept Nigerians and fans of the show worldwide glued to their TV sets and their phones. It ended on Sunday September 27th with performance by A list Nigerian Musicians YBNL Fireboy DML, Mavin Record Rema and a surprise performance from Davido and DMW star boy Mayorkun had Laycon Agbelese, the poeples favorite house mate emerging as the winner of the 85 million grand prize of the show. Aside him emerging as the winner of the show, something else happened on Twitter that became a trend. A twitter user by the handle @manlikefola_ tweeted the following:
“Yea Laycon and few house mates wanted to take selfies with Rema but his bouncers stopped them which now made Davido angry that he should be humble, during the process Rema sha chop slap. End of story.”
As expected, fans of both Davido and Rema started fighting on twitter without second guessing. Funny thing about everything is, this guy is not even in Nigeria. He made the tweet from Canada. How can someone in Canada be telling you what happened on a show that was broadcasted live from Lagos and we all saw no altercations between anybody?
But they say ‘Behind every lie is a truth’ so we were alert waiting to hear from Davido and Rema but got nothing until we saw a tweet from the same person apologising to Davido for causing him much trouble. Here is his tweet: @manlikefola_
“Guys this tweet about Davido slapping Rem was just a joke and a lie. Thank you.”
Like, are you for real? This is slander on the reputation of Rema and Davido. You are painting a picture that Rema is proud. This could cause him to loose a lot of fans and goodies that would have come his way as an artiste. You should know how fans react to these things. On the part of Davido, you are painting him as a bully which he is not. Anything of such that would tarnish anyones reputation shouldnt be used for jokes.
A lot of fans would have expected Davido to file a suit or give him a strong warning to never in his life time again raise a fire alarm where there is no fire, he shocked us all with his response to the tweet: @davido “Actually not fair bro… cus pple actually believed you… we humans too my guy.”
Very mature response of Davido. I respect him, this his response and how he handled this slander made me respect him more. Goes a long way to tell us its not everything we take personal. Sometimes, you just have to overlook things and let them pass. It would save one time and resources they would have been wasted. What do you think about how Davido handle this slander?
