Cheque, a Nigerian singer and songwriter whose real name is Akanbi Bamidele Brett, a few days ago triggered heavy backlash online following a freestyle video he posted.
Cheque was seen in the video, seemingly admiring Davido’s wife, Chioma’s pictures on his phone while singing a love song to her.
He had 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 among fans and followers, with many stating that zooming in on Chioma’s picture and singing to her was disrespectful.

Following the backlash, Cheque deleted the video and took to his Twitter handle to apologize to Davido, stating that he didn’t mean any form of disrespect.
“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”, he wrote on Twitter.
In response to Cheque’s public apology, Davido quoted the tweet with a love emoji, indicating his acceptance and forgiveness.
