#Chivido2024: Chioma, Hypocrisy And The Rest of Us


Ah, the whirlwind of Nigerian social media! One minute you’re up, the next minute you’re down faster than Jollof rice at a wedding.

The recent hullabaloo over Davido and Chioma’s wedding is a classic case of the fickleness of public opinion.

It’s like we’ve all been riding a rollercoaster of emotions, and Chioma has been the star at the front seat.

Let’s rewind a bit. Remember when many Nigerians—especially the ladies—were dragging Chioma through the social media mud? They said she was naive for sticking with Davido despite all his wahala.

Cheating allegations, fights with baby mama drama, and that infamous video where OBO was caught begging another woman—oof, drama galore!

Women were like, “Chioma, girl, why are you still there? Dump him and move on!”

Some even said she should get a life of her own instead of being all about Davido.

But hold up, fast forward to now—boom! Davido and Chioma tie the knot, and suddenly, it’s raining commendations and emojis of love.

People are hailing Chioma left, right, and center. The same folks who were advising her to run for the hills are now gushing over her wedding gown and the grandeur of the event.

Let’s dissect this change of heart, shall we?

Reason One: Davido is Mega Rich and Famous

Let’s face it, Davido isn’t your average Joe. The man is dripping in cash, fame, and his family is minted too.

When a guy like that throws a wedding, it’s not just a wedding—it’s a spectacle, a national event.

Governors, celebrities, footballers—all turning up and turning heads. Who wouldn’t want to be part of that glitz and glam?

It’s like we’ve all collectively gone, “Well, if Chioma’s gonna stick around, might as well enjoy the show!”

Suddenly, people are less concerned about the past drama and more focused on the Cinderella moment happening before their eyes.

Reason Two: Lip Service to Principles

Oh, the hypocrisy runs deep, my friends. How many times have we heard Nigerian women (and men too, let’s be fair) declare that cheating is a deal breaker?

It’s like a national anthem—cheat and get yeeted! But when the rubber meets the road, how many actually stick to their guns?

Davido and Chioma’s saga seems to have thrown a spotlight on this double standard.

We preach loyalty and faithfulness from the rooftops, but when faced with real-life scenarios, suddenly the rules seem bendable.

It’s easier to judge from the sidelines than to walk the talk when your heart is involved. Chioma might be the poster child for resilience or just a realist—depending on who you ask.

Reason Three: Hypocrisy, Thy Name is Humanity

Let’s not kid ourselves; we’re all a little guilty of wearing masks. We praise simplicity but crave extravagance.

We condemn cheating but binge-watch drama. Nigerian social media, like a marketplace, reflects this dichotomy of our human nature.

We love a good story—a rise, a fall, and a redemption arc. Chioma and Davido’s saga ticked all those boxes.

Remember when we all swore off Instagram for a digital detox, only to come back the next day?

Or how about promising to eat healthier, only to find ourselves elbow-deep in puff-puff a week later?

That’s us, folks—imperfect, inconsistent, and utterly human.

So, here’s to Chioma—defying expectations, challenging norms, and giving us all a reason to hit ‘like’ on Instagram.

Whether you see her as a heroine of love or a subject of fascination, one thing’s for sure: Chioma’s journey with Davido has sparked a thousand conversations about love, forgiveness, and the undeniable allure of a good wedding.

As we continue scrolling through our timelines, let’s remember that behind every hashtag, there’s a story—a messy, beautiful, and yes, sometimes hypocritical story.

Chioma, may your marriage be as breathtaking as your wedding gown, and may we all learn a thing or two about resilience from your journey.

And to all of us watching from the sidelines, let’s take a page from Chioma’s book: embrace the chaos, laugh at the contradictions, and above all, celebrate the human spirit that keeps us scrolling, sharing, and yes, sometimes even changing our minds.

Cheers to Chivido204, to Chioma, to love, and to the beautiful mess that is Nigerian social media!
