Popular Nigerian singer, Davido, has been responsible for popularising a number of slangs in the country, one of which is ‘tule jor’.
However, the music star’s latest slang, e choke, seems to have been more wildly accepted than he envisaged.
The popular ‘e choke’ slang was used by the singer on different occasions and a number of his fans all over the country took to it. Now, not a day goes by when ‘e choke’ is not used in conversations on social media.
Well, Davido has decided to make a business move regarding the slang. In a new post shared on Twitter, the Risky crooner said that he has to get ‘e choke’ copyrighted. According to him, it had gotten out of hand.

“Gotta get ‘e choke’ copyrighted it’s getting outta hand”
