Davido is a musical icon best known in Nigeria, Africa, and across the globe – But who is he married to despite having other baby mamas?

Davido whose real name is David Adedeji Adeleke but mostly known by his moniker OBO is an American Nigerian singer and record producer.

On March 31, 2023, OBO released his fourth studio album dubbed “Timeless” through Davido Music Worldwide, Columbia Records, and Sony Music Entertainment. Despite being Amapiano predominantly, the album explores other musical styles such as Afrobeats, Dancehall, Ragga, Konto, Highlife, and Afropop.

Davido’s “Timeless” album was a collaborative effort with some of the biggest names in the industry, and the result was a project that resonated with fans worldwide, reflecting the impressive figures and numbers achieved with the album.

The release of the album followed months of silence after a tragic occurrence in 2022 when he sadly lost his son, David Adedeji Ifeanyi Adeleke Jr.

The album has been well-received across the globe and even broke so many records one of which is the highest number of album pre-orders by an African artist that was a position previously held by Burna Boy with his Grammy-winning album “Twice as Tall”, Per Africa News.

Davido, despite being an African icon for his music, is notoriously known to have several baby mamas. However, on March 2023 he revealed in an interview he had with a skit maker Kiekie that he is married. So, which of his baby mamas did he marry, and how many kids does he have so far?

Who is Davido’s married wife?

Nigerian Superstar Davido has officially confirmed his marriage to his partner, Chioma Rowland. He made this big reveal in an exclusive interview with content creator and actress, Bukunmi Adeaga-Ilori who is best known for her YouTube channel, YouTube channel Kie Kie TV.

The singer, who took a break from social media following the death of his son, Ifeanyi, discussed his marriage to Chioma, his musical long break, and his new project, ‘Timeless’.

Davido said, “Just being away, you know I have had a lot to think about definitely. Time to rest, reflect on a lot of family time, and time to make music again. You know, I remade the album. Before I went on a break I actually had an album ready. I had a tour ready. You know we did the album. I traveled. It was crazy. I’m married. A lot of different things but yeah, we are ready now to get back on the road. The album is out, it’s amazing.”

He had hinted about the wedding last year (2022) in an Insta Story video posted by UK-based Nigerian pastor, Tobi Adegboyega.

Daily Post NG reports that the singer paid Chioma’s bride price in full at Ezeala Odu, Imo State, on Thursday, January 5. Also confirming their marriage in a trending video on social media, Chioma’s father could be seen performing the Umunna and Umuada rites.

Before their marriage, Davido and Chioma had an on-again-off-again relationship over the years

Are Davido and Chioma still together? Yes, Davido and Chioma are currently together (and even married), but they have had a rocky relationship for many years.

The duo started dating in late 2017 but only disclosed their relationship a year later. Reportedly, Chioma and the singer were head-over-heels for one another as they took out time even with their busy schedules.

After being together for several months, the Electricity singer popped the question to Chioma and got engaged. The same year, they welcomed their child, Ifeanyi, and had family introductions before preparing to tie the knot.

They were supposed to get married in 2020, but their plans got delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Things started to turn sour when in mid-2020, rumors began circulating that Chioma had moved out of the artist’s residence.

The duo reportedly unfollowed each other on Instagram, with some fans suggesting that Chioma was a victim of domestic violence during her time with the singer. But she soon put those rumors to rest.

However, Chioma deleted all the pictures of the singer from her Instagram handle.

In December of that year, rumors that the singer had spent his Christmas and New Year with model Mya Yafai surfaced on the internet. Two months later, in February, pictures of the apparent duo stepping out of a club in the US took the internet by storm.

Despite their relationship being under the spotlight due to their popularity, the couple seemed to have worked out their differences and were spotted together celebrating their son’s birthday in October 2021, marking their first public appearance.

Things started to fall into place after Chioma was spotted with their son attending the singer’s London concert in March 2022. Reportedly, the singer sent his private jet to Nigeria to flow the duo down to the location.

Since then, Davido and Chioma have been spotted together numerous times, gracing public events.

In September 2022, it was reported that the singer had attended church for the first time in three years due to Chioma.

Aside from Chioma, Davido had other baby mamas. This means his son with his wife is not the only child he has currently. So, who are Davido’s kids?

How many children does Davido have right now?

Apart from staying busy with his career, he is also a father of three children (two daughters and a son), though with different mothers. The names of Davido’s kids are David Adedeji Adeleke Jr., Aurora Imade Adeleke, and Hailey Veronica Adeleke.

Davido’s first child is Aurora Imade Adeleke

About his baby mamas, he initially gained recognition for his relationship with entrepreneur Sophia Momodu. Sophia welcomed a daughter, Aurora Imade Adeleke, and a DNA test proved that Davido was her father.

She was born on May 14, 2015, and because both of her parents are from the southwestern region of Nigeria, she has Yoruba ancestry.

Imade studies at one of the top international schools in Lagos, Nigeria. Although we do not know her school’s name, we do know that Jamil, Tiwa Savage’s son, attends the same institution and is in the same class as her.

Imade is one of the most followed celebrity kids on Instagram with over 530K followers

Davido’s second baby is Hailey Adeleke

Davido’s second baby, Hailey, was born on May 9, 2017, making her two years younger than her sister Imade.

Davido was so happy about Hailey’s birth that he never shied away from mentioning it.

In reality, he was there physically when she was born. He gave her the name Hailey Veronica Adeleke, with the second name honoring his mother. Despite being American-born, Hailey has Yoruba ancestry.

Since Hailey’s parents don’t talk about her much and she doesn’t use social media as much as her sister does, we were unable to find out much about her education or other personal matters. Despite this, we are confident that Hailey and her father have a close father-daughter relationship.

Davido’s last child, a son is Ifeanyi Adeleke. He died at age 3

Ifeanyi was welcomed into the world on Sunday, October 20, 2019, in the UK.

David was present at the hospital when his now wife Chioma gave birth to their son, much like she did in Hailey’s instance.

At age three, Ifeanyi passed away after he was reportedly drowned over an attempt to use his father’s swimming pool when there was no elderly person around to assist him.

Is Davido expecting a baby number four?

FYI, it is reported that Davido is expecting baby number four. This was made known by the controversial anonymous blog, Gistlover, which had earlier shared posts about a particular celebrity who was expecting another child from his baby mama. According to Gistlover, a certain famous musician with a huge fanbase who recently got married is expecting a second child with one of his baby mamas in Atlanta.
