“I miss you so much 44”! – Davido pays emotional tribute to late road manager, “Obama DMW”


Afro-pop star, Davido, for the first time since the death of his road manager, “Obama DMW” has made a public statement concerning his death.

Obama who Davido calls 44 died on the 29th of June due to heart failure according to reports. He was said to have driven himself to the hospital after he reportedly complained of not breathing well.

Davido took to his Twitter page, in a series of tweets to express his sadness over his death as he prayed that his soul rests in peace.

His tweets read;


This is by far the hardest thing I’ve had to write. Hurt, broken, sad, and lost. For the first time in my life, I am EXTREMELY confused. The pain is one I cannot explain. 44 was more than an elder brother to me, he was a protector. someone that just always made me smile. 

All my life it’s been “David you’re strong, David you’re strong”. 44 I won’t lie to you, this time around, this one WEAK ME!! 

I miss you so much 44.

No matter the issue, problems I had. His response was always “Don’t worry, I’ll talk to them”, “Don’t worry I’ll sort it out”, “Don’t worry I’ll give them something”. I would never believe in a million years I will be writing a tribute like this to someone so dear to me this soon.


You became so peaceful. You found peace and purpose, a true generational influence. I cannot even begin to count the number of people you helped, artistes you brought to me, people you brought together in nothing but love and brotherhood. Actors, artists, influencers all. God!

44 I swear you will never be forgotten. Up until now, I cannot believe this is real, I don’t even know what I’m writing, I’m just writing. I’m just confused.

This has been such a haunting week for all of us. All of us, me, his family, his son, his daughter, his brothers, his friends, a whole brotherhood; God give us all the strength. This isn’t even about me, it’s about all of us, and all the amazing plans and vision you had.

It is hard getting by without you, my backbone is truly gone but I won’t stop making you proud. I promise to continue to take this thing we started together, to the ends of the earth. I promise to continue dominating the world.


And to Malik, even though you are taller than me ❤️, you are my son. Doing so well in school, passing with flying colors. I have to be strong for you, and u have to be strong for the family, your mom. Everything 44 wanted to do for you, we will finish it together.

44 MY FRIEND. May God accept you to His kingdom. I Love You.🕊❤️
