In a different post, Davido’s Logistics Manager, Israel DMW, said that if people want to celebrate him, they should do so while he is alive, not when he is dead. Israel wrote:
“Celebrate me when I am still alive. Don’t start showing your fake social media love me, my family or Edo people when I am no more. Ogun will kill you instantly.”
Tiwa Savage had earlier shared a video of the late entertainer showing him at different points in his life.
Tiwa described her ‘man’ with so many glowing words. According to her, he was the strongest and
the bravest person she knew and that he was also ready to take a bullet for his loved ones.
May the Soul of Obama DMW and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the Mercy of God, rest in peace.
