Legit.ng reached out to the designer identified as Owolola Olusile, about what inspired him to create the outfit.
Olusile who revealed Davido's catchphrase was the reason, stated that he didn't know the design would go viral.
Here is what he had to say:
“Davido who is one of the most prominent musicians out of Nigeria and Africa started the catchphrase “E choke”, which gained a lot of publicity on social media. As a fashion designer, I sometimes draw inspiration from current events or trends in entertainment and decided to attempt to represent the phrase artistically. At the time, I had no idea the design would be acknowledged widely.”
Popular Nigerian singer, Davido, has been responsible for popularising a number of slangs in the country including ‘tule jor’ and the more popular one, 'e choke'.
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.
