Offending celebrities is one of the hazards of being a celebrity or gossip blogger.
You write a story they don’t like, even if it’s true they get pissed. It’s one of those things, it comes with the territory. But when lives start getting threatened then there is a major problem, and it shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Yesterday at a press
conference parley for The MTV Africa All Stars event which is going down tonight in Lagos. Davido threatened to beat up and have killed blogger Sheifunmi Yusuf if the latter came close to him for an interview.
Read an eyewitness’s account of what went down below
Sheifunmi is affiliated to MTV UK, so he was present at the press parley organised to interview artistes and MTV Bosses. Peeps like Ice Prince, Davido, 2face, Professor and lots of industry guys were present. As soon as Sheifunmi stepped in with his crew, Davido was informed he had one more interview, he asked who.Then he pointed at Speen, Sheifunmi’s colleague, and was like “Hell no!”Then he went on to say if Sheifunmi came close to him, he’ll beat him up and have him killed because Sheifunmi tweeted or talked about his Dad. Davido stormed off childishly. Funny thing is he will always run into Sheifunmi. Seeing as the international blogger will be hosting the fashion police on the red carpet.
20 year old Davido’s threats are a result of a story Sheifunmi ran on his blog in January about Davido’s Dad, billionaire Dr. Deji Adeleke concerning alleged marital issues and the alleged involvement of an Undergraduate Mistress…Read That Story HERE
When that story went public Davido blasted Sheifunmi on twitter calling him a faggot, See his tweets
All this led to yesterday’s event….
I understand David is upset about the story about his Dad, he is still going to run into Sheifunmi in a professional setting. I feel Davido had two options 1) be professional, do the interview, keep it moving or 2) refused to do the interview without causing a scene.
DO YOU THINK DAVIDO WENT TOO FAR WITH HIS THREATS OR MURDER & ASSAULT? SHOULD HE HAVE DONE THE INTERVIEW & ACTED PROFESSIONAL?
