Singer cum songwriter, Akanbi Bamidele Brett, who is popularly known as Cheque, recently found himself at the centre of a social media storm following a freestyle video he posted.
In the said video, Cheque is in his car, singing to different women’s pictures which he has on his phone. Calling them shawty, he slid past Davido and his wife, Chioma’s photo and when he got to a picture of Chioma alone, he zoomed in on it and kept singing.
This gesture sparked controversy from fans and followers with many stating that zooming in on Chioma’s picture like some ‘random babe’, is disrespectful.
Cheque has deleted the video and while not stating what he did, he issued a public apology to Davido stating that he didn’t mean any form of disrespect.
Questions have surrounded the reason for this apology as numerous speculations indicated that the singer’s now-deleted video which many had considered disrespectful to the wife of Davido, Chioma is the reason.
His apology reads:
“Never meant any form of disrespect to Davido. baba has been there for me anytime I need am, even on zoom remix. I no just just reason am well before posting. Thank you and love you big bro .. OBO”
This apology sparked reactions from fans and followers on social media, and here are some below with the said video of Cheque singing.
