Nigerian singer, Simi has reacted to the claim that she shaded Davido by using his catchphrase, ‘e choke’ while congratulating the two Grammy winners, Burna Boy and Wizkid.
Not long after the Grammys announcing Wizkid and Burna Boy’s wins, Simi took to her Twitter page to send a congratulatory message to the Awards Winners.
In a now-deleted tweet, the mother of one wrote;
‘Starboy and Burna, E Definitely Choke”
Fans dragged her for deliberately shading Davido with the popular slang “E choke” that was mentioned in her tweet.

Simi, however, rebuked the claims of shading no one and the tweet was unintentional. She explained she used the slang because it was quite popular.
“Loool FFS I LOVE David and I LOVE Wiz. I was celebrating the winners and used the slang just as a SLANG. A friend said to remove it cos fans thought it was shade and so I did. It didn’t even occur to me at all.
WHAT WOULD BE THE POINT OF ME SHADING EITHER OF THEM?? To what end?”
