From ‘Fem’ To ‘Jowo’, Davido Now Has Fans Shouting Tule For N2m

 

Nigerian pop star, Davido has given fans a new assignment with what he has called the #TuleChallenge.

The challenge involves people mimicking a video in which the singer had posted days earlier where he was heard shouting the word Tule.

But what has got fans more excited to participate is the two million naira giveaway prize attached to the challenge.

We’re not sure what #Tule really means but it appears Davido invented the slang to shade his ‘haters’.

This comes days after his alleged altercation with Twice as Tall singer, Burna Boy.

Both singers were alleged to have had the altercation in Ghana over the weekend.

The incident caused a stir on social media with some shading both artistes.

Davido later went on to hint that he might stop doing music.

But in what appears to be him getting his ‘mojo’ back, the singer has now thrown the challenge to fans and the response so far is evidence of the #fanlove.

 

For some, however, its just for the hustle (who wouldn’t want to end the year with a whooping two million naira just for a few seconds of shouting).

See some of the responses below.

 

 

As expected, you can’t separate humour from Nigerians.

Nigerian Pop Singer, David Adeleke popularly called Davido has sparked a train of reactions on Twitter after talking about quitting music.

“I go leave this music for una,” Davido tweeted on Monday.

 

Although, the FEM crooner has yet to reveal why he is considering leaving music, his tweet has caused a Twitter storm with his name dominating trends.

Many of his fans in reaction pleaded with him not to consider quitting his music career as he has many hits to his name. Some others were indifferent as they compared his music with Burna Boy and Wizkid.

 

 

Davido’s tweet might not be unconnected with unconfirmed reports that he got into an altercation with Burna Boy at a nightclub in Ghana.

A video shared by a Twitter user shows the moment a furious Davido attacked another man reported to be Burna Boy at the nightclub, over the weekend.

No fewer than two persons were reported killed in Otukpo Local Government Area of Benue State on Christmas day after a policeman allegedly shot into the crowd during a music carnival.

Channels Television gathered that the music carnival was organised by a young millionaire at Ochacho Avenue in Otukpo where popular musician, David Adeleke, also known as Davido, was billed to perform.

Sources from the area confirmed that the unfortunate incident took place at the palatial residence of the young millionaire in Otukpo town.

The event was yet to commence around 11:00 pm when sounds of gunshots resonated within the premises, leaving people scampering for safety.

It was later gathered that the shots might have been fired by one of the policemen believed to be on duty.

“The gunshots triggered a stampede which caused all of us to run out of the venue for safety. In the process of running, I saw two persons in the pool of their blood; a male and a female,” the source said.

“The sound of gunshots made me run towards the gate in fear as I did not know what was happening.

“Several other people also took to their heels; although it was not easy for most people to identify the location of their vehicles.

“Several onlookers stood aloof at the rail crossing and at You Road and Ibadan street in utter surprise.”

The Council Chairman of Otukpo Local Government, George Alli, who confirmed the report disclosed that a young lady and young man died in the incident.

Alli however said that the organizer of the music carnival flouted federal and state governments’ directive banning social gathering due to the second wave of COVID-19.

“Yes, is true there was an incident and two people died; a young lady and a young man died. Their corpses have been deposited in the hospital morgue,” he said.

“I have spoken to the Area Commander and the Division Police Officer and they are investigating the incident. The gathering in the first place is not proper because the federal government has directed that there should be no social gathering and it was followed by the State government. There should be compliance with the directives.”
