So Davido and Chioma are engaged for real [for real!] and the #Assurance2020 ball is now well and truly rolling.

What we can look forward to is a super-lit wedding that will not only be the toast of society, but will also shut down social media and top ‘Trending’ charts for hours on end [maybe days].
Not much is known of the wedding yet, but from all we know about Davido and Chioma’s love story, here is how we imagine the wedding ceremony[ies] will be like.
When will the wedding be?
Davido himself has constantly used #Assurance2020 as the preferred hashtag for the coming wedding. So next year it is. Whether it will be in the first half or second half of the year is what we can’t tell for sure.
But if we’re to guess, we’ll say Davido may want to choose a date that commemorates his late mum, Veronica Imade, who died in 2003.
The singer is known to always give a shout out to his mum, and even sentimentally named one of his daughters after her. So, maybe the weekend of her birthday then?
Where will the wedding take place?
For the traditional wedding, there can be no doubt as Davido himself already said it will be at Eko Hotels And Suites. So let’s all start booking our Aso Ebi as we look forward to another Eko hotel shut down!
To give you an idea of what to expect at an Eko Hotel wedding that truly, really bangs, click this link to relive Fatima Dangote’s wedding from 2018. It is the smashing, headline-grabbing success that Davido and Chioma would be looking to replicate.
The other ceremonies aren’t known about just yet. But where else would the court wedding hold at if not the Ikoyi registry where all celeb court weddings hold?!
We’re also guessing the church wedding will be anywhere outside the country. Maybe in Atlanta, USA.
You know, as per Davido’s mental line in that ‘Summer Body’ song with Olamide “my name is Davido… omo Atlanta!”
Will Wizkid perform at the traditional wedding?
One thing you can be sure of is that the traditional ceremony of #Assurance2020 will be such a huge parray!
There will surely be musical performances and the industry friends of the groom-to-be are expected to turn up the heat in the room.
We really won’t be surprised if Wizkid was invited to perform at the ceremony. Don’t forget that time Davido surprised us by bringing Wizkid up for a performance at his show in 2018.
Kizz Daniel may be called to perform his song ‘4Dayz’ as well. That was what Davido and Chioma were playing during the ride back home after the man proposed.
Tiwa Savage, Mayorkun and a host of others should bring the party on the day too.
Maybe Simi and Johnny Drille for some love ballads before the party party gets down.
Guest list. We won’t be surprised to see Chris Brown
You can expect the crème-de-la-crème of the music, politics, society and entertainment circles to be there at the wedding.
And given Davido’s budding friendship with Chris Brown, what’s to say he won’t be part of the guests at one of the ceremonies at least?
Over here, we are willing to bet that Chris Breezy will be at Eko Hotel on that traditional wedding day, wearing agbada and dark shades to enjoy confam Nigerian party jollof, alongside the who-is-who of the Nigerian social circles of course!
What will the bride wear?
For the traditional wedding particularly, Deola Sagoe looks like the go-to designer. So we won’t be shook to see Chioma dipped in the blinking goodness of one of Deola Sagoe’s designs.
Enter, 30 billion gang!
Most definitely, Davido’s well-known crew will feature in more ways than one on their man’s big day and we can see groomsmen duties being part of the roles they’ll play.
Peruzzi, Mayorkun, Lati, B-Red, Aloma, Prince, Sabako, Tycoon and others will make up Davido’s groomsmen/agbada gang or both.
We are fully looking forward to seeing Davido’s uncle, Ademola Adeleke, the dancing senator to come with all the energy on the day.
It’s even been a while since we’ve seen baba throwing it down anywhere. Between losing an election and the subsequent election petition that followed, we understand there might have not been so much time for dancing.
But Davido and Chioma’s #Assurance2020 will likely change all of that.
And if fellow celeb senator, Dino Melaye somehow shows up at the wedding too [we suspect he’ll be there], you can expect nothing but lit, lit moves from the both of them.
