David Adeleke, better known as Davido, has denied involvement in the death of one of his crew members and friend Tagbo Umeike.
Tagbo reportedly died in the early hours of Tuesday October 3, the deceased’s birthday.
Nigerian actress, Caroline Danjuma, had accused Davido of Tagbo’s death, claiming the singer and his crew abandoned the body at a certain General Hospital in Lagos and absconded.
She wrote in an instagram post on Tuesday night, “Davido where is Tagbo? … he was with you and ur crew last night … you all wore face cap to hide your identities after he died in ur car.. u dumped him at general hospital and ran away.
Reacting to the allegation, Davido in a series of messages via his Snapchat said he was disappointed over the false claim made by the actress.
The ‘If’ singer said he would rather not speak about it out of respect for Tagbo and his family.
“God knows the truth,” he wrote.
“People are just wicked. This is what I get for treating everyone like my brother.
“I was deeply saddened to hear of the sudden death of my friend and Tagbo, first and foremost my sincere condolences and prayers are with his family at this time.
“I’ve been in the same position before, multiple times and also of recent – but it is disappointing that false information and complete lies have been put out there using my name, as usual.”
According to Tagbo’s Facebook profile, he was a graduate of the Lagos State University.
