Nigerian star Davido has shut down the rumours that he tweeted an anti-Igbo statement.

Today, Monday, August 7, 2017, Davido was asked by a Twitter user if he said "My father will just buy off the whole Igbo land. And their stupid Biafra will stop, stupid Igbos."

Davido swiftly denied this. "Would never ever make such statement .. tell them to try again.. " he tweeted.

 

At such a sensitive period in the nation when the agitation for secession by certain individuals is high, it was smart for Davido to distance himself as quickly as possible from the fake tweet.
