Nigerian singer David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has reacted to a fan of Burna Boy who wished him death.
The incident occurred on Twitter when a user with the handle @Winco_3 posted a video of Burna Boy’s concert and claimed that even Davido’s burial wouldn’t attract as much crowd.
Davido, quoting the tweet, questioned why the fan would wish him death and expressed his confusion about any personal grievance the fan might have against him.
He asserted his determination to live life to the fullest and warned that hurting the wrong person can have consequences.
Criticism over Public Announcement of a Younger Brother
Controversial Nollywood actor Uche Maduagwu has criticized Davido for publicly declaring that his late son, Ifeanyi Adeleke, has a younger brother named Dawson Adeleke.
During an interview, Davido mentioned his son’s younger brother, which Uche Maduagwu finds insensitive towards Davido’s wife, Chioma Rowland Adeleke.
Uche Maduagwu suggests that Davido should have waited for some time before publicly announcing the birth of another child, considering the tragic loss of Ifeanyi in October 2022.
Delay in Public Announcement Would Have Been More Appropriate
Uche Maduagwu believes that Davido should have exercised more sensitivity and waited for a little over a year before revealing the existence of his new son.
Considering the painful loss of Ifeanyi, Uche Maduagwu argues that publicly announcing the arrival of another child so soon after the tragedy can be hurtful to Chioma.
By waiting, Davido could have allowed more time for healing and reflection before making such an announcement, thereby showing greater consideration for the emotional wellbeing of his wife.
Criticism Surrounds Davido’s Statements
Davido’s response to the fan’s death wish and his announcement of a younger brother for his late son have both sparked criticism and controversy.
While some defend Davido’s right to respond to negativity and express his emotions, others argue that his actions may have been insensitive given the circumstances.
The situation highlights the challenges faced by public figures who constantly face scrutiny and must carefully navigate their words and actions, particularly during times of personal tragedy.
