Davido and Chioma’s relationship is one of the most talked-about celebrity love stories in Africa. This is not surprising at all, considering Davido’s popularity among Nigerians, Africans, and people around the world. There is hardly anything that happens in Davido’s life that goes unnoticed, including his relationships. So, when Chioma came into his life, it soon became public knowledge.
The couple has enjoyed a lot of attention since the media confirmed that they were dating and, over the years, they have made headlines with their PDA and devotion to each other. In fact, the kind of waves the lovebirds have constantly made with their love story has made some fans hail them as Nigeria’s Romeo and Juliet. However, like all relationships, Davido and Chioma’s love story has not always been a rosy one.
How Davido And Chioma First Met
One of the most sought-after pieces of information about Davido and Chioma’s endearment is how the couple met each other. When news first emerged that they were dating, many people became curious about how one of Africa’s biggest stars came to fall in love with the beautiful, and unknown young Chioma. Well, the story is quite an interesting one.
Davido and Chioma met in school when they were both students of the popular Babcock University. Talking about how this happened, Chioma, while responding to questions from fans in 2018, explained that when she was in school, she had a friend who knew Davido. According to her, this friend of hers was actually dating a female friend of Davido at the time, so it was easy for her to access Davido through him. Apparently, Chioma was so close to her friend that he introduced her to Davido after some time.
Who Introduced Chioma To Davido?
When Chioma told this story, many fans concluded that Nigerian singer Peruzzi was that friend of hers who introduced her to Davido. They reached this conclusion because Peruzzi is Chioma’s distant cousin and is also signed to Davido’s record label. So, they figured that if Peruzzi is a relative of Chioma and is also Davido’s friend, then he must have been the one who introduced her to the singer.
However, Davido quashed this school of thought in 2020 during an interview on Bounce Radio. He revealed that it was his manager, Lati, who introduced him to Chioma. Apparently, it was not Peruzzi at all who linked the couple up. Findings later revealed that when Chioma and Davido started dating, Peruzzi had not even met Davido yet.
