“Because Davido have money You allowed them to step on tradition” – Deeone drag Chioma’s family

Popular Nigerian comedian Deeone has criticized the family of Chioma Rowland, wife of music star Davido, for holding their daughter’s traditional wedding in Lagos instead of their hometown in Imo State.

The comedian took to his Instagram page to publicly criticize Chioma’s family for allegedly disregarding their tradition due to money.

In a video shared online, Deeone expressed his view that Igbo tradition seems to have two standards: one for the wealthy and another for the poor.

According to him, traditional Igbo marriage customs dictate that a bride should have her traditional wedding in her hometown.

However, in Chioma’s case, he observed that her family “bypassed” this tradition due to Davido’s affluent status.

The comedian asserted that if Davido had come from a less privileged background, her family would have insisted on adhering strictly to the hometown-based wedding tradition.

“…Because Davido has Money, Chioma’s Family allowed him to Step on Tradition, if he was a poor person they will demand that he comes to the east to Chioma’s Hometown for the Traditional Wedding, But because of Money now all the respected Igbo leaders travelled to meet Davido in Lagos…” Deeone said in part.
