The post which has since gone viral on social media has sparked mixed reactions.

Fortune who was responsible for a lot of Davido's photos both on tours, at the studio and at home, was considered the singer's official photographer even though he worked with other artistes like Zlatan and Patoraking.

While many have expressed concern over the number of deaths in the 30BG gang, others do not want him to be tagged as 'Davido's photographer.'
