Afrobeats sensation David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has recently shared the story of how he crossed paths with his wife, Chioma Avril Rowland, shedding light on their blossoming relationship.
The couple first encountered each other while attending Babcock University, where Davido pursued a degree in music, while Chioma studied Economics.
Their romantic journey officially commenced in 2015.
Spanning 43 minutes, the video delves into the singer’s hectic schedule, characterized by constant travel, brief respites, and relaxation aboard private jets soaring thousands of feet above sea level.
Within the captivating documentary, Davido manages to bask in the affection he harbors for his beloved wife, Chioma, recounting the story of their initial encounter and how he attempted to strike up a conversation with her during their first year at university.
In his words;
“I was in school for a year before I blew up. That was when I met my wife. I remember the day I saw her. I can never forget. I was in a Prado, and I looked behind, and I saw this girl walking. Just there with her bag, it was Chioma. I told Lat (Davido’s personal assistant), ‘Omo, I like that girl. Go and call that girl for me.”
However, initial attempts to establish contact were met with silence, as Chioma did not respond at the time.
Nonetheless, fate intervened, and Chioma eventually made her way to Lagos, where the two reconnected.
Davido reminisced, saying,
“Later on, she came to Lagos, and we linked up. And I was like, ‘Yeah, I got you.”
