"The truth is if you don’t post me during my birthdays or good moments please don’t post me during my bad moments. I see it as fake love."
"So everybody must mourn with Davido? Lol. Even those that actually don't care about the boy will be talking rubbish."
"No sense we are not in for this mood."
"You’re a brilliant man sir but this is damage control .David doesn’t need anyone’s validation & our sympathy won’t bring his son back . It won’t kill yoh to show small empathy and not trying to shade him at a time like this . God doesn’t like ugly , we hope your sudden campaign for children doesn’t end today , we will be watching."
"That post was an indirect message. Egbon!!!! You be yoruba man nau. We understand better."
