Popular Nigerian music star, Daddy Showkey, like many other Nigerian celebrities, has mourned the death of top singer, Davido’s associate, Obama DMW.

In an emotional video shared on his page, Showkey said it was important for people to know the situation of their bodies, know the state of their health and do medical checks at the hospital.
Speaking further, the music star said some people were fond of smoking and drinking different things every day even when it would all tell on their bodies eventually.
Showkey lamented the rate at which young people were dying in recent times and lambasted those who made a public show of smoking and drinking. According to him, they were encouraging others to do same.
In his words:
“You see why we are shouting about you people taking care of your health. Know the situation of your body. Go to the hospital, do medical check-up just to know the situation of your body. All these people every day you smoke this, smoke that, you drink anyhow. At the end of the day, it is your body everything tells on.”
