Davido and Chioma Years of Friendship

The two started dating way back in but made their relationship official in 2018 at a function. Chioma, who is a professional chef, has been featured in several music videos by the singer. There were many rumors of breakups over the years following sagas of baby mamas but the introduction hit social media in September 2019. They welcomed a boy who they named Ifeanyi months later. They, however, in November 2022, lost Ifeanyi following a home accident just as he turned three.

In October 2023, after Davido was Grammy-nominated, there were speculations of Chioma being pregnant again and she welcomed a set of twins. This came as a relief to the couple as a video of them stepping out of hospital with their babies quickly went viral.

The wedding comes as a crowning moment for all their trouble and efforts to remain together over the years. This has spiked an outpour of congratulations from fans celebrities, and well-wishers.
