Many are familiar with the speculations that Davido has another baby mama, Larissa London and son, Dawson, who he failed to acknowledge on social media.
In 2017, Davido and Dawson’s mother, Larissa sparked dating rumors while the singer was working in London. This was the same time Davido was publicly dating his current wife, Chioma Rowland, popularly known as Chef Chi.
The duo were seen together on several occasion, including the 2017 MOBO award show.
Speaking on how they met during a Q&A session with her followers in 2020, Larissa tersely narrated how she met the father of her child, Davido. She said, “We met four years ago. I was working as a makeup artist. That is where we first met.”
However, after the news of their relationship broke out in the media, neither Davido nor Larissa confirmed the rumours.
When Larissa came online to announce that Davido is Dawson’s father, he, at the time, reportedly denied the boy and blocked Larissa on his social media accounts. It became a really messy situation with speculations flying around.
