Popular Nigerian music star David Adeleke alias Davido has revealed how the video to his hit song 'Assurance' affected his relationship with fiancée Chioma Rowland.

Recounting what happened, he indicated that, he began having issues with after Chioma and her parents started receiving death threats.

"I remember when we shot the video, it was actually just a joke and jokingly I asked her to shoot the video with me. At first, she was like no, because at that time she was at Babcock and she might get kicked out of school and her parents didn't really know that she was seeing me," he said.

The threats from faceless strangers, added the FIA hitmaker, affected their relationship greatly. "We did the video and then it dropped, it was crazy. And over time, it affected our relationship. Because she's getting messages from like 5k people that don't have faces to their accounts, saying nonsense, hate messages," narrated Davido.

Adding: "Even her parents use to get hate texts. It affected our relationship a lot because, before the Assurance video, stuff was so cool. The relationship became a public relationship."

Opening up about their wedding, the singer divulged how he was pressured to take a stand. "I did but now we don't. I actually did feel pressured but at the end of the day, it is between me and her. It's not our parents, the public, or our siblings, it is between me and her," he added.

The award-winning singer, however, went on to say that his heart belongs to his lover, but getting married is, at the moment, off the table.

“I have known Chioma for about seven years. We have been dating for about five years. Lati introduced me to Chioma. We went to the same school, Babcock University. We started as friends but I got so used to her and she got so used to me as well. She is a great cook as well. I'm so happy that now she's getting into the money, we are trying to build a house too. Just trying to make the foundation so solid and not just do something because we are riding on the wave of what people want," he revealed.
