Davido is still winning even in the face of slanders

Amidst death allegations in Davido’s life at the moment, Davido still wins awards at the AFRIMMA Musik Magazine and Festival award. Popular musician, Davido has suffered loss of three friends in the past one week. First it was Tagbo Umuike and then DJ Olu and Chime, who were found dead in their car.
