“Davido queried me when blogs claimed I wrote Jowo” – Victor AD
Popular Nigerian singer, Victor AD has finally opened up about the events that followed rumours that he was the writer of Davido’s popular song “Jowo.”
Recall that a while back, claims went viral on social media that Victor AD claimed Davido had stolen his hit song “Jowo” from him in a studio session.
Victor AD, however, disclosed that Davido had questioned him about why he would say such a thing when the accusations began to circulate but he denied being the source of the rumours.
The Warri-born music singer confirmed that he didn’t write the song, as was widely believed in a recent interview with Naija FM, Lagos.
The ‘Tyre You’ crooner claims that his connection with the DMW chief was nearly destroyed by fake reports found on blogs.
“From nowhere, someone speculating that Victor AD wrote [Davido’s] ‘Jowo.’ I’m not social media-savvy. Most times, before I notice happenings on social media, it would be two days after the matter has trended.
My manager actually called my attention to the ‘Jowo’ controversy on social media but I didn’t take it seriously. Later on, I said let me just check the trend on social media. Then a few hours later, I saw Davido’s message. He was like, ‘Whatsup na? Wettin dey sup with this whole ‘Jowo’ thing?’. And I said I didn’t know anything about it.
I told him that based on the love and respect I have for him I can’t do something that will tarnish his image. I’m not even the type of person that will claim what I’m not. Why would I be seeking credit for what I didn’t do?”
