Superstar Afrobeats singer, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido has officially confirmed being married to Chioma Avril Rowland.
He disclosed this in an exclusive interview with popular Nigeria skit maker, Kiekie, on Thursday.
The ceremony, he seemingly admitted, took place at the time he took a break following the death of their son, Ifeanyi, in November 2022.
Talking about what he has been doing during the break he said “I have never taken this kind of break, so just being away I have had a lot to think about – time to rest, reflect, a lot of family time and definitely time to make music again.”
“Before I went on break I had an album ready, the tour ready, but we re-did the album. I am married, and a lot of different things. But yeah we are ready now to get back on the road and back on tour,” Davido added.
In late 2022, it was reported that Davido and Chioma tied the knot days after their son Ifeanyi passed away.
Chioma’s kinsmen had stopped the burial of Ifeanyi by the Adeleke family, claiming that the deceased was their son since Chioma was not legally married to Davido. This is a tradition practiced in parts of Igbo Land.
According to Daily Sun, Chioma’s bride price was paid on Friday, November 4, 2022, in a quiet and secret traditional marriage ceremony in Lagos before the deceased was buried on November 5.
Meanwhile, Davido is all ready to release his much-anticipated album Timeless, set for Friday, March 31.
In a post about the album, he wrote: “There is a time for everything. A time to Grieve and a time to Heal. A time to Laugh and a time to Dance. A time to Speak & A time for Silence. Thank you to everyone out there for your love and that has held me down. My next album TIMELESS is here.”
