Nigerian singer Victor AD has clarified reports regarding his involvement in writing Davido’s hit song ‘Jowo’ during a recent interview with Naija FM in Lagos.
Recall that a report that went viral on X (formerly Twitter) a few months ago claiming Victor AD said Davido “stole” his hit song ‘Jowo’ from him during a studio session.
However, speaking during the interview, the Warri-born music star clarified that he didn’t write the song.
He said the rumours almost ruined his relationship with Davido.
Victor AD said: “From nowhere, someone speculating that Victor AD wrote [Davido’s] ‘Jowo.’ I’m not social media-savvy. Most times, before I notice happenings on social media, it would be two days after the matter has trended.“My manager actually called my attention to the ‘Jowo’ controversy on social media but I didn’t take it seriously. Later on, I said let me just check the trend on social media. Then a few hours later, I saw Davido’s message. He was like, ‘Whatsup na? Wettin dey sup with this whole ‘Jowo’ thing?’. And I said I didn’t know anything about it.“I told him that based on the love and respect I have for him I can’t do something that will tarnish his image. I’m not even the type of person that will claim what I’m not. Why would I be seeking credit for what I didn’t do?”
