I like to go as OBO, not Odogwu – Davido.
Nigerian singer, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has told his fans to desist from calling him “ODOGWU”.
The singer added that he would rather stick to his nickname, ‘OBO’ (Omo Baba Olowo which means Son of a Rich Man).
He made this known after he posted a video of his fans chanting ‘Odogwu’ (Great Man) at him.
In his words;
“I like to go as OBO as it’s been for the last 10 years”.
