Their love story dates back to before Davido became the superstar he is today, during his undergraduate years at Babcock University. David Adeleke and Chioma Avril both attended the institution where he pursued a degree in music while Chioma studied Economics. He was smitten the moment he set eyes on her, but Chioma was initially unimpressed.

In an interview with YouTuber and vlogger Tayo Aina, Davido recounted their meeting: “I was in school for a year before I blew up. That was when I met my wife. I remember the day I saw her. I can never forget it. I was in a Prado, and I looked behind and saw this girl walking. It was Chioma. I told Lati, ‘Omo, I like that girl, go and call her for me.’ He called her, but she didn’t answer me at the time. Later on, she came to Lagos, and we linked up. And I was like, ‘Yeah, I got you.’”

Back in 2018, rumors of Davido and an unidentified young lady in a relationship started circulating after Snapchat videos of Davido with the lady surfaced online. In January 2018, Davido made it known that he was in a relationship after taking Chioma to a private family event in Ede, Osun state.
