How true is this claim about Abraham and Tomori meeting Davido in Lagos? AllNews check.
It is not a current picture. It's a photo from the past - 70 weeks ago.
Yes, Davido hung out with the two players who have Nigerian descent. They met in Dubai last year (2020), United Arab Emirates (UAE) - not Lagos.
Abraham and Tomori were in Dubai where they enjoyed a much-needed break during the English Premier League (EPL’s) winter break.
While in the UAE, the athletes ran into Davido and they were happy to take a photo with the entertainer.
Abraham and Tomori are both born to Nigerian parents and listen to a host of Nigerian music including the ones from Davido.
‘Young kings’ Abraham captioned the photo while Tomori repped Nigeria with the captain ‘NG’.
Both players have committed to playing for England after turning down the invitation to switch their allegiance to Nigeria.
