David Adeleke, also known as Davido, has paid Chioma Avril Rowland, also known as Chef Chi’ bride price.

The engagement ceremony was held at Chioma’ family residence in Ezeala Odu, Nkwerre Local Government Area, Imo State.

According to sources, Davido paid the dowry in full to the Umunna group in Owerre Nkworji Ezeala ofu.

It may be recalled that the couple, following the demise of their 3-year-old son, reportedly had their conventional wedding in November 2022.

Chioma’ father is seen in pictures and videos from the event performing the umunna and umuada ceremonies.

In the photo, several tubers of yam, drinks, and other items were spotted as Chioma’ dad stood at the centre, coordinating it all.

Note that the second phase of an Igbo wedding is the Umunna rites which is a meeting between the groom’ family and the bride’ extended family.

According to traditional rites, the meeting is important because the groom’ people have to restate their interest in marrying from the bride-to-be’ family, in the presence of her Umunna (direct and extended family, with family elders).

Once consent has been secured, dates for the traditional wedding will be set and the bride price list will be sent out. The groom takes a few gifts such as kola nuts, palm wine, beer, soft drinks, tobacco, snuff and a goat which will be shared between the groom and bride’ family.

Not even a day had passed since the engagement ceremonies before Wikipedia updated its page with the information, “Davido married Chioma Rowland on November 6, 2022.

In the column for spouse(s) on his personal profile, Chioma Rowland was named as Davido’s wife.
