The demise of Davido’s three friends has left so many people wagging their tongues and pointing accusing fingers at the pop singer that he has hand in their death. The fact remains that nobody should be blamed yet until the autopsy result reveals the real reason behind the trio”s death. Encomium.ng brings you how Tagbo, DJ Olu and Chime died three days apart.
Tagbo Umeike death happened on October 3, 2017. The death occurred after he went with his friends to a joint called Shisha Room. They reportedly had a competition of Tequila shots where each person had to take ten shot of Tequila. After the session, they later went to a beach. A report had it that he passed out at the beach but nobody was able to take him to the hospital because they were already all high. After the friends had suspected that something was wrong, they allegedly dropped him in front of the hospital with his car. This was narrated by family friends of the late man, Damilola Usman.
The family friend, Damilola Usman, who was at Tagbo’s parents’ house on Wednesday, alleged Tagbo passed out after taking shots of Tequila.
He said, “Tagbo’s family is not ready to give out information now but once they are, we would contact you because the case is still at the police station and the investigation is still on-going. However, what happened was that we went to a joint together called the Shisha Room. In the Shisha Room, we had a competition of Tequila shot. Each person had to take 10 shots of Tequila and after the competition, Tagbo passed out. Nobody took him to the hospital because everybody was high already. We did not know that it was something serious.”
“I learnt they went to the beach later and I think he passed out at the beach again. His friends that accompanied him to the beach did not attend to him on time but eventually when they suspected that there was something wrong, they allegedly dropped him in front of the hospital with his car,” he said.
In an interview Caroline Danjuma granted SDK blog, she said she learnt there was a bet of N200,000 and the late Tagbo drank 50 shots of tequila.
Caroline, who also revealed the late guy was her boyfriend said, “I decided to call my neighbour who was also Tagbo’s friend and he said that there was a bet of N200,000 and that Tagbo drank about 50 shots of tequila but I said that cannot be true. Tagbo cannot drink even a glass of Hennessey because he had a light brain like me. So a guy who couldn’t drink this much couldn’t finish 50 shots of tequila. Tagbo did not need N200, 000 to do that. He came from a very wealthy background so he didn’t need that kind of bet; he was not hungry for that. I was shattered to hear such news.
“Meanwhile, someone who rented my bar told me he was with Davido at Shisha Bar on Monday and then I asked him randomly, “Oh then, you must know Tagbo”. The guy confirmed that he met Tagbo and that was when he knew they were birthday mates and he also said they had fun and went from there to DNA to party on Lagos Island.
“I contacted another person who (allegedly) remembered seeing Davido and Tagbo. According to what the person said, Tagbo drank the tequila and got intoxicated,” she said.
However, the police called Davido to investigate him about his friend’s death.
Three days after Tagbo’s death, it was reported two other friends of Davido’s died – DJ Olu (Olugbenga Abiodun), the son of popular oil tycoon and Ogun state politician, Dapo Abiodun and a member of the DMW crew “Chime” died in a car.
Davido’s took on his Instagram handle Saturday night:
” OLU I SWEAR TONITE IS FOR YOU !!WE KILLED SHOWS BACKS TO BACK TOGETHER FOR 4 years STRAIGHT !! A PART FOR ME IS BROKEN !!LOVE YOU BRO!!GOD TAKE CONTROL”
