Nigerian superstar, Davido has been thrown into mourning after losing his dearest bodyguard and friend, ‘Ogbeide Tijani Olamilekan’ popularly referred to as ‘Uncle Tijani’ whom he has enjoyed an 11-year relationship with.
Revealing he is tired of being strong, Davido finally expressed his grief via social media on the 9th of December 2020, taking a short trip down memory lane to reveal the important role “Uncle Tijani” has played in his life for the past eleven years; from ensuring he’s ready for a show to making sure he gets to a show even when he doesn’t feel like it. He expressed:
“Tell me I’m dreaming, my Tj is gone. What am I going to do without you Uncle Tj ehn? For 11 years you did all for me, put me before you at all times. All the times I didn’t wanna wake up for a show or a flight, you will carry me like a baby in the car. No matter what I did right or wrong, you were there for me, to allow me spend my money na problem. Every time, ‘David don’t worry I will use my card’. You were such a big person with a big heart. Everyone loved you, I wanna wake up late for a show so you’d come and carry me again. I don’t even know what I’m typing man…R.I.P Uncle Tijani… I’m tired of being “STRONG”.
