One of the biggest news making rounds on the internet in the past few days is the Nigerian music star, Davido welcoming a newborn baby born by his fiancée, Chioma. The DMW boss and singer already has two daughters from two baby mamas but the addition of a son to the David Adeleke dynasty is great news to the family and to well-wishers all over the world.
The mother of the baby, Chioma couldn’t hide her joy as she described Davido as the world’s best father after the delivery. Of all his baby mamas, OBO (as he is fondly called) showered the mother of his son with very special attention. There are speculations that this is because of the son she bore. Hopefully, this will answer your question.
Davido with the real name David Adeleke is a household name in the music industry worldwide. The son of a Nigerian billionaire hasn’t been shy to show to the public the love he has for Chioma whom he met while studying at Babcock University some years ago.
With Chioma, Davido seems to keep that lockdown after dating several ladies which includes Stacey Briana Brown, Funmi Aboderin, Sira Kante, Nish Kards, and his two baby mamas Sophia Momodu and Amanda. He hasn’t stopped shocking his fans and followers after meeting the mystery lady. He has thrown her a big birthday party, presented her a new posh car, met her family, and proposed to marry her.
Who really is Chioma?
The mother of Davido’s son has the full name Chioma Avril Rowland. She was born on the 1st of April 1995 and hails from Imo state, Nigeria. She was a 300L student at Babcock University, studying Economic when she dumped school for life with the music superstar. Chioma is a chef, specializing in African dishes as seen on her Instagram page @chefchi. Nothing was known about the beautiful lady who also models for her sister’s fashion line until she met Davido.
She has since enjoyed fame as she got an endorsement by a reputable company in Abuja worth 60 million naira. She has also amassed over half a million followers on Instagram, as well as verification. Even though she doesn’t share much about her personal life, she always looks adorable whenever her pictures are posted on social media. It is more charming when it is a loved up photo with her lover who is fond of posting tons of their photos and short videos.
Davido and Chioma’s love story so far
Davido, 27, met Chioma while at Babcock University pursuing a degree in Music. The pop-star was intimate with Sophia Momodu and later Amanda who bore him Imade Adeleke and Hailey Veronica Adeleke respectively. Nothing was known about his romance with these ladies until they gave birth as his love affairs were kept mute. He couldn’t hide it when he met Chioma which was said to be a case of love at first sight.
Later, there were rumors by celebrity bloggers of Davido dating a mystery lady. It was later confirmed by Davido as he couldn’t keep calm in showing his love for Chioma. Bloggers were quick to label Chioma as a gold digger as her family wasn’t in the status of the Adelekes but Davido was quick to rubbish that claim by showing he is madly in love with the damsel and it’s a mutual feeling.
Davido made this public as he threw a big 23rd birthday for Chioma in a night club attended by friends and also presented her an exotic posh car worth 45 million naira. Pictures of the two love birds thereon filled the internet. The ‘If’ crooner hasn’t introduced any of his previous ladies to his family but took a step further by taking Chioma to a family event in his country home of Ede, Osun state and introduced her to his family. The introduction continued with the DMW crew as she went on a music tour with Davido’s OBO gang.
Their love waxed stronger as Davido released a love song titled ‘’Assurance’’ with Chioma starring in the visuals which also have her name in the song lyrics. It became a hit and anthem as several ladies couldn’t wait to have their own assurance.
The pair has since been seen in luxury lifestyles; from a shopping spree in Dubai and Paris to beautiful pictures in private jet, as well as showering her with gifts on Valentines’ day. In fact, when bloggers and journalists especially Kemi Olunloyo cooked up rumors of a breakup between the lovers, Davido came out to show their love was made-from-heaven. Chioma was brought on stage in December 2018 during Davido’s concert, a move which became the highlight of the night as they kissed on stage.
The public never thought Davido is going to settle down soon as it is the case with many celebrities. He has once said he isn’t getting married soon as his focus is on his career. It was a shock to fans and followers on his social media when he shared a photo on his Instagram page on the 2nd of September 2019 where both families (David and Chioma) held an introduction ceremony in Rowland’s Lagos home ahead of marriage to Chioma.
Ten days later, Davido proved to everyone that he was going to take all the right steps as he officially proposed to Chioma on the 12th of September 2019. The proposal took place amidst close friends in a restaurant in London.
Their love story hit top gear when Davido was seen in a delivery room in a hospital in Atlanta, USA. A photo and video of his newborn baby surfaced on the 20th of October 2019. The happy and proud father quickly named his son with his sweetheart David Adedeji Ifeanyi Adeleke Jr. in a caption on the Instagram post. Who else is looking forward to one of the biggest celebrity weddings soon? Can’t wait to see the continuation of Davido and Chioma’s romance and lovey-dovey thing.
What happened to the other baby mamas?
While Chioma has enjoyed most of Davido’s attention, the reason his other baby mamas didn’t get such attention should raise eyebrows. Davido’s first baby mama is apparently the most famous of his girlfriends.
Sophia Momodu is a fashion enthusiast and a niece of the Ovation Company CEO, Dele Momodu. She gave birth to a girl who needed a DNA test to confirm Davido as the father. The baby was named Aurora Imade Adeleke, with her middle name being after Davido’s later mother Veronica Imade Adeleke. Their relationship became sour as Davido allegedly tried to take his daughter out of the country several times without her consent.
That led to a legal battle and heated exchange between the parents on social media with Dele Momodu involved in harsh words from the pop star. Things have since cooled off between the pair even though they are not planning to get back together. Dele Momodu has moved on as he recently congratulated Davido and Chioma on the birth of their son. Davido often visits his little daughter Imade and posts endearing photos with her on social media. He sure loves his firstborn and would do anything for her.
The second baby mama, Amanda resides in Atlanta, the city in the United States where Davido himself was born. Nothing was known about her until she gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby girl, and Davido was incredibly excited to welcome the newborn daughter to the world. The baby was named Hailey Veronica Adeleke. Just like with her older sister, he decided to give her a middle name after his late mother.
There’s never been a talk of Davido getting married to Amanda with whom Hailey lives in the United States. The two daughters who both have the look of their father are heirs in the Adeleke dynasty. Recently, a photo of Davido and his father with the daughters, while in their Atlanta home, was posted on social media. All sides seem happy with their level of relationship with the superstar.
Why is Chioma having the special treatment?
Chioma has been receiving the ‘special’ treatment even before she bore him the much-desired son. It is very safe to say this is a matter of found love. Davido’s gestures since meeting Chioma and making their love known to the world really showed he is very happy and has found everything he needs in a lady in the beautiful chef.
It is clear he was never in love with the previous ladies he dated as much as he is with Chioma Avril Rowland. A man will definitely not hide whatever he cherishes even if he tries very hard to do so. He also wants to prove to the world that he is a one-wife man even after testing waters. He even said Chioma knows how to take care of kids and has called her ‘wife’.
The joy of every man is to have kids; it is a double joy when it is a son as the male child is seen as the heir to the throne, at least in this part of the world. No wonder Davido had to be in the labor room with his heartthrob.
While his colleague, Wizkid was holding the Starboy Fest in the UK and other colleagues in the industry were participating in the Headies Award, he was performing his duties in the labor room. He can’t but love Chioma more and give the special treatment to the love of his life.
Chioma as well can’t get enough of this fame now, the newborn baby himself is already a brand ambassador. Chioma and Davido look like a perfect fit for each other. As long as the money keeps rolling in, and they live happily, much attention will definitely be given to Chioma. Just as he said in one of his song lyrics “love is sweet, when money enter, love, is sweeter“. He is surely happy and it is glaring he loves her from the bottom of his heart.
On this note, congratulations to Davido and Chioma on the birth of their newborn baby. This is wishing them happier years together. We can’t wait for a thrilling wedding soon.
