Popular singer Victor AD has finally spoken on the speculations that he wrote Davido’s hit song ‘Jowo.’
a report that went viral on X (formerly Twitter) a few months ago claiming Victor AD said Davido “stole” his hit song ‘Jowo’ from him during a studio session.
However, speaking in a recent interview with Naija FM, Lagos, the Warri-born music star clarified that he didn’t write the song.
He said the rumours almost ruined his relationship with Davido.
Victor AD said: “From nowhere, someone speculating that Victor AD wrote [Davido’s] ‘Jowo.’ I’m not social media-savvy. Most times, before I notice happenings on social media, it would be two days after the matter has trended.
“My manager actually called my attention to the ‘Jowo’ controversy on social media but I didn’t take it seriously. Later on, I said let me just check the trend on social media. Then a few hours later, I saw Davido’s message. He was like, ‘Whatsup na? Wettin dey sup with this whole ‘Jowo’ thing?’. And I said I didn’t know anything about it.
“I told him that based on the love and respect I have for him I can’t do something that will tarnish his image. I’m not even the type of person that will claim what I’m not. Why would I be seeking credit for what I didn’t do?”
Since the incident, Davido and Victor AD are no longer following each other on social media.
The duo collaborated on ‘Tire You’ before their relationship grew cold after rumours that Victor AD accused Davido of song theft.
