Davido photographer and close ally Fortune Ateumunname is dead.
Another member of Davido’s DMW crew is dead.
This time around his personal photographer Fortune Ateumunname and close ally reportedly died today in Lagos.
Fortune reportedly drowned at a location in Lagos, this evening Tuesday, September 21, 2021.
This news comes barely three months after Davido lost manager Obama DMW and nine months after his bodyguard of six years, Ogbeide Tijani Olamilekan (Teejay) died.
Between 2017 and 2021, the Assurance crooner has lost a number of his closest staff and friends.
Tagbo, DJ Olu, Chime, Ahmed, his personal bodyguard Tunji and Manager Obama DMW.
Tagbo Umeike’s death was very controversial because Davido was accused of knowing and having a hand in his death.
His death raised so many eyebrows because of the controversy surrounding his demise. He was reported to have been with Davido and his crew at a nightclub on October 4, 2017, before they allegedly decided to play a drinking game that had a winning price of an iPhone 8 and N200,000 cash, a game which went bad.
It was alleged that Davido and his crew decided to leave the club and insisted that Tagbo should ride in Davido’s car, an offer he declined. However, he was allegedly carried to the General Hospital where his corpse was dumped, leaving speculations over what transpired after the drinking contest.
Just when the death of Tagbo was still causing a lot of commotion, the death of DJ Olu and Chime both friends of Davido was announced. Shocking right?
On October 8, 2017, it was reported that DJ Olu and Chime were both found dead in DJ Olu’s car. It is still unclear as to what really was the cause of death. DJ Olu was a member of the HKN Label, which had Davido as its boss.
Mourning the loss of Tunji, Davido wrote:
