The family of the late Tagbo Umeike has revealed that Davido, one of the last people he saw before he died, did not attend his burial.
In a chat with Saturday Beats, the brother of the deceased, Chigbo said that although his brother’s life was cut short unexpectedly, his burial went according to plans.
He said, “My brother was buried on Friday and it is so sad that we have lost someone with a big heart. However, Davido was not present at the burial neither did he send a representative but at this point, we have no comment on that.”
He also denied reports that the whole debacle had given his mother a stroke.
He said: “I would also like to use this medium to correct the notion that my mother has stroke because she doesn’t. We saw the report online but it is not true. The burial ceremony went well. I would miss my brother a lot because he had a big heart. He was not only my brother but a lot of people’s brother as well.
“Through my late brother, I have made a lot of friends turned brother and despite his death, I hope to still keep these wonderful people as my brothers. My sister in the UK came down for the burial. For now, we just finished burying my brother and we would want the dust to settle,” Chigbo said.
While the burial went on, Davido was reportedly in Edo state, where he met with the kingdom’s crown prince, and even took a photograph with him.
