Nigerian award-winning singer, Davido has finally paid Chioma’s bride price (Umunna) in full in Owerre, Nkworji Ezeala ofu Nkwerre Local government area of Imo state, the singer has fully paid the Umunna faction.
In a video trending on social media, Chioma’s dad could be seen performing the Umunna faction and Umunna rites.
“The second phase of an Igbo wedding is the Umunna rites which is a meeting between the groom’s family and the bride’s extended family. This meeting is important because the groom’s people have to restate their interest in marrying from the bride-to-be family, in the presence of her Umunna (direct and extended family, with family elders). Once consent has been secured, dates for the traditional wedding will be set and the bride price list will be sent out. The groom takes a few gifts such as kola nuts, palm wine, beer, soft drinks, tobacco, snuff and a goat which will be shared between the groom and bride’s family.”
Since the death of their son, Davido and Chioma have withdrawn from the spotlight and have been keeping a very low profile. While Davido made his first return to Instagram, Chioma has remained inactive on Instagram. The singer however, said he will be fully back by March 2023.
