Tiwa Savage and Davido are among the most prominent musicians out of Africa.

In the petition obtained by TheCable Lifestyle on January 9 and addressed to Fayoade Adegoke, the Lagos commissioner of police, the Afrobeats songstress said the Grammy-nominated megastar threatened to “f**k me up”.

Tiwa Savage also alleged that Davido made a “direct threat to my rights to life, privacy and dignity of my person”.

The songstress also asked the police to “hold Davido responsible if any harm befalls me”.

“I am writing to bring to your attention a distressing situation involving myself, Tiwatope
Omolara Savage, popularly known as Tiwa Savage and MR. DAVID ADELEKE popularly
known as Davido,” the petition reads in part.

“On the 23rd of December, I made a post which included myself and Sophia Momodu on my
Instagram Story- a feature on Instagram which allows you to put up a post for twenty-four
hours, and MR. DAVID ADELEKE sent messages to my manager who’s also part of his
management team that I shouldn’t worry and should never say a word to him and that I was
taunting him, uttering very disrespectful, malicious and derogatory words to my person.

“I responded to MR. DAVID ADELEKE’s message and told him not to reach out to me
especially as I feel like I have been there for him and his daughter, Imade and more
importantly when he lost his son.

“The events of that day have also led to a barrage of calls and messages from our mutual
connections, asking me what I did to MR. DAVID ADELEKE that he’s upset that I chose to
maintain a relationship with Imade’s mother, Sophia Momodu who he’s having issues with
and also painting the exchange to look like I was the aggressor. He has also told our mutual
connections to warn me to “be careful in Lagos because he was going to f**k me up”.

“This is beginning to feel like some form of online and offline harassment not just to me but
also members of my team.

“The actions of MR. DAVID ADELEKE are unethical and can be viewed as a direct threat to
my rights to life, privacy and dignity of my person as guaranteed in Chapter 4 of the
Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended), and are also in
contravention of Section 24(2)(a) of the Cybercrime (Prohibition, Prevention, Etc.) Act,
2015.

“I therefore would like to make this complaint and to state that in the event that anything
untoward or harmful were to happen to me or any member of my family, I will like the
members of the Nigerian Police Force to hold MR. DAVID ADELEKE responsible.

“I am available to answer any questions or provide any additional information regarding this
matter.

“Please find attached screenshot images of the exchange between myself and MR. DAVID
ADELEKE for your perusal.

“Thank you in anticipation of your prompt response and attention to this matter.”

The petition was filed a few hours after TeeBillz took to social media to call out Davido.

The talent manager claimed that despite the love his son Jamil, whom he shares with Tiwa Savage, his ex-wife, has shown to Davido’s daughter Imade, the singer still “disrespected my family”.

He also promised to teach the ‘Unavailable’ singer “a life lesson” after the Grammy Awards.
