Davido, Chioma wed in lavish ceremony

Afrobeat star Davido has wedded his long-time heartthrob Chioma Rowland in a lavish event attended by the crème de la crème of the entertainment industry and other top dignitaries.

The event, held on Tuesday at Harbour Point in the Victoria Island area of Lagos State, marked the culmination of years of friendship and, as expected, generated buzz on social media.

Tuesday’s ceremony came about two weeks after Davido confirmed his wedding to the chef. On Sunday, the 30 BG boss posted their pre-wedding photos to set the tone for one of the most anticipated events in the nation’s entertainment circle, tagging it #Chivido2024.

As expected, Davido’s grand wedding event was nothing short of a gathering of dignitaries from different walks of life.
The Ooni of Ife Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi was spotted at the ceremony, wearing his signature white dress and beaded crown.

A former governor of Akwa Ibom State Udom Emmanuel; ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo; Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State; his Ogun State counterpart Dapo Abiodun; Senator Daisy Danjuma of Edo South were among the leaders at the ceremony. The president’s son Seyi Tinubu also attended.

Celebrities like Patroranking; singer Paul Okoye better known as Rudeboy and others graced the occasion which had TV host Ebuka Uchendu as the compere.

Chioma’s friendship with Davido dates back several years. But their relationship only became official in 2018 when the singer confirmed it at a public function in October of that year.

The chef has been featured in several music videos by the singer with rumours of breakups popping up many times over the years.

A year later the singer confirmed the relationship, photos of the introduction hit the social media space and in September 2019, Davido proposed to her at a private ceremony. Their wedding was expected to happen in 2020 but was called off due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
