Davido a popular secular musician has taken a break on social media in a process he has termed as self-cleansing . The Nigerian based musician also claimed to have changed his phone number claiming that nobody had to reach out to him as he would do it himself.His move comes few days after the celebrity took to social media to stipulate his resolutions. The musician claimed that he was making changes in his lifestyle. He also claimed that he had resolved to putting his interest first before others. His move also affected his fiancee , Chioma who has since then been unfollowed.
Netizen’s speculate that the celebrated musician’s move musthave been accelerated when his fiancee took the internet by storm debunking rumours of having been battered. Chioma Rowland refuted rumours that had surfaced on social media regarding her as a victim of domestic violence :
“But I must say what I have found disturbing the stories of domestic abuse between myself and David and for once feel a need to speak up . Domestic violence and abuse is no joke and not something to take lightly . Never has there ever been
an incident of abuse in my home. He has never in his life lifted a finger to touch me and I have never so much pushed him. ”
Being in the public space comes with so much cons. Chioma so much expected the same . She hence called out on people whose work was to spread rumours about people’s lives.
“I know you guys love to spread all sorts of rumours and stories for your entertainment and I’ve known from day one what to expect from blogs and the internet especially with myself and family being in the public space..”
Chioma also went ahead with claims that she had not replied to any bloggers or engaged in any online battles as she paid very little attention to it if any.
“… I have never come out to respond to any blogger or react to any rumour mongers before as frankly. It has never been my nature to engage in online battles or pay too much mind on social media… I believe with everything we peddle as human beings whether offline or online , we should have a fear of God more so if we are speaking on things we know absolutely about…”
The celebrated chef didn’t take the matters on the rumours being propagated lightly. She promised to take legal action against the people who were spreading such rumours.
” …we do not take such allegations about abuse lightly and if such persists we will then be taking action against the perpetrators of these disgusting rumours…”
Chioma went ahead to discourage women from accepting to be victims of domestic violence .
” …never allow a man to lay his hands on you while you keep silent. If you were ever to suffer such , ensure you speak up. With all that is going on in the world right now, we most certainly cannot sit around and condone or encourage women to condone such. ”
