Nigerian singer, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, has been accused of stealing his hit song 'Jowo' from his colleague, Victor AD.
Jowo is a track off Davido‘s latest album ‘A Better Time’ and it has been well received by fans and lovers of good music across all streaming platforms.
The accusation was brought forth by a Twitter user identified as @ThugLife_Back. According to him, Davido used the song without express permission from Victor AD.
The accuser added that Victor AD confronted Davido after he had stolen the hit song but was blocked from all Davido's social media pages.
Victor AD just confirmed davido stole his record "Jowo" ? according to AD; OBO heard d song after they recorded "Tire You". He was surprised to see d song on ABT without him/his mgt consent; He said davido blocked him on Socials & threatened to ruin him. This wickedness ?— ThugLife? (@ThugLife_Back) May 10, 2021
The accusation has no substantial backing as neither of the two musicians has said anything about it.
However, it has generated mixed feelings among tweeps. Some are of the opinion that Davido is fond of stealing or buying his hit songs from others and is incapable of writing his own songs.

As far as I know, Jowo was performed by Davido, written by David Adeleke & Oladeinde Okubajo aka @Davido & @Deindeofficial and prod by Jerry Jethro & Peter A. Kehinde Emmanuel aka Napji & Majicboi. That’s as far as I know. Don’t shoot me I’m just the guy that did the paperwork :)— Bobo F. Ajudua (@Prince_II) May 11, 2021
