Nigerians react after Davido refers to his fiancee Chioma as ‘Mama Ify’ while wishing her happy birthday

• Is it bad for someone like Davido to call his fiancee by a name as local as “Mama Ify”? This has been the highpoint of the reactions from Nigerians after Davido’s birthday message.

Today, Friday, April 30 marks 26th birthday of Chioma Avril Rowland, the fiancee and baby mama to Nigerian multiple award-winning popstar Davido.


However, hours after Chioma posted some photos on her Instagram page celebrating herself as she turns 26, many people reacted saying that her husband-to-be David Adeleke who supposed to have wished her happy birthday is yet to share an encomium.

Shortly after it trended on social media, Davido took to his Instagram story, reposted Chioma’s picture and wished her happy birthday saying; “All God’s blessings on your birthday today! Make it a great one! MAMA IFY @thechefchi”

Immediately, Nigerians picked a fault stating that Davido and Chioma seem to be having some issues as this is first time the singer calls her by such name, even though Chioma responded with, “Thank you.”

Below are some of the reactions gathered on Twitter.

A user with the username, @olaolu85 thinks Davido is treating Chioma badly by addressing her with such name even with all her loyalty.

“This girl doesn’t deserve this kind of treatment from Davido. She’s too loyal and beautiful to be preyed upon like this. I wish her a strong mind to pull through and find happiness else where.”

And this user, @MRukkiie concluded that something doesn’t feel right between the two celebrity couple;

“Something doesn’t feel right around here though. Chioma replied “Thank you.” “Thank you” with a full stop. Hmmm Looks like assurance ship has sunk.”

@xandramathias added that it’s obvious the much-talked romance between Davido and his wife-to-be is over and people should leave them alone;

“Isn’t it obvious she’s just his baby mama and he …her baby daddy. The romance is over y’all leave dem alone or getat.”

Meanwhile, a die-hard supporter of Davido identified as @DanielRegha bashed everyone who shared negative reactions over Davido’s birthday message. According to him, there’s nothing wrong in Davido calling Chioma “Mama Ify. Matter of fact, Chioma can as well call him Papa Ify.

“There’s nothing wrong in Davido calling Chioma “Mama Ify” abi is she not mama Ifeanyi?Besides Davido sef is also called papa Ifeanyi (Papa Ify) so what’s the big deal? Y’all should allow this girl breathe abeg. There’s a lot going on in the country, mama Ify no concern us biko,” he wrote.

DanielRegha continued, “Chioma is Ifeanyi’s mom so there’s nothing wrong in Davido calling her” Mama Ify” cos Davido sef is papa Ify. Stop twisting people’s words cos u want to clout chase, allow Chioma breathe. The rate at which a lot of people are trying to ruin Davido & Chioma’s relationship is sad.”
