Davido and his Imo State fiancée are often seen on stage displaying affection. The music star went on to release a song titled “Assurance” and gave her a Porsche car valued at N35 million. The hit song “Assurance” was dedicated to Chioma, and she also starred in the music video as well. Also in the video for the song “Wonder Woman”, Davido closed visuals with Chioma, after showing images of his two other women.
A few months ago, the singer did cause a stir answering a question during a radio interview when asked about his girlfriend Chioma, in comparison to the other two women shortly before he proposed to her. Responding to the question, the star singer said, “this one is special to me”. Just last month, Davido formally proposed to Chioma at a dinner held at a restaurant in London.
The engagement came 10 days after the couple’s family had an introduction ceremony in Chioma’s family home in Lagos. Their wedding is set to take place in 2020, and pop star Chris Brown according to Davido requested to be a participant in the ceremony as he and Davido have developed a friendship after collaborating on “Blow My Mind,” Davido’s latest single.
