Multiple platinum artist and super popular musician David Adeleke aka Davido might have found himself in the middle of another huge scandal because of his rumoured connection with a top cult kingpin who was brutally murdered in recent clashes between rival cult groups in South Africa.
The South African police are said to have issued a statement saying their investigations revealed Davido might have some connection to one of the groups in the spate of cult clashes in South Africa which has seen the leaders of two rival gangs lose their lives in the past month.
Findings by The Lagos Times revealed that the deceased cult lord was felled by a gang of 8 from a rival group. He belonged to the dreaded Neo Black Movement of Africa Worldwide, more commonly known as Black Axe Confraternity.
Na Romeo, as he was popularly called, was their Chief Butcher in South Africa, the man in charge of making unwanted people disappear and he allegedly maintained a close friendship with Davido. There were reports he took a contract from the OBO crooner to discipline some people for him last year. And when Romeo was arrested for possession of guns it was said that Davido paid some money to get him released.
It is no longer news that the deadliest cult groups in Nigeria have exported their brand of thuggery and established outposts in other countries especially South Africa. Two of them, the Black Axe and the Eiye Confraternity, have been fighting each other for a very long time. Those who killed Na Romeo are believed to be Eiye boys exacting revenge for numerous losses they’d suffered at the hands of the Black Axe’s chief butcher.
Now that the SA police have waded into the matter Davido might soon find himself in hot soup on account of his relationship with the felled cult kingpin. Recent pictures of Na Romeo in Axe regalia posing with Davido are already all over the net. The police have already said he might be invited to answer questions in connection with two of their investigations.
Meanwhile, underground checks revealed that some irate members of Eiye and the Vikings Confraternity aka Aro Baggers are not happy with Davido over his alleged use of the Black Axe to eliminate their guys. They have vowed to deal with him should he set foot in South Africa again.
