Nigerian artiste, David Adeleke, better known as Davido, has told his fans that prefers to be called ‘OBO’, and not ODOGWU.
This comes after the singer shared a video of his fans chanting ‘Odogwu’ (Great Man) at him.
Earlier this year, Burna Boy released a song dubbed, ‘Odogwu’ and he said whenever he is in Igbo Land, that is what he is called and he typically responds by dancing.
In a follow-up post, Davido clearly stated that he doesn’t want to the title and he would rather stick to his nickname, ‘OBO’ (Omo Baba Olowo which means Son of a Rich Man).
In his words;
“I like to go as OBO as it’s been for the last 10 years”
