Nigerian music star, David Adeleke, better known as Davido, has told his fans that prefers to be called ‘OBO’.
This comes after the singer shared a video of his fans chanting ‘Odogwu’ (Great Man) at him.
Recall that “Odogwu” is Burna Boy’s nickname and the singer released a song earlier this year dubbed, ‘Odogwu’ and he said whenever he is in Igbo Land, that is what he is called and he typically responds by dancing.

In a follow-up post, Davido clearly stated that he doesn’t want to the title and he would rather stick to his nickname, ‘OBO’ (Omo Baba Olowo which means Son of a Rich Man).
In his words;
“I like to go as OBO as it’s been for the last 10 years”
