Here’s everything Davido wants you to know about Tagbo’s death
Singer, Davido had promised a footage and statement clarifying his position on the death of his friend, Tagbo and he has followed through.

The Acting Police Commissioner mentioned that the report negated claims Davido made when he first invited by the police for questioning, and added that the singer would be reinvited.
Following the new allegations, Davido not only released CCTV footages from the hangout spot, Shisha bar where he claimed he last saw Tagbo but also shared a statement from his lawyers.

Bruno Mars leads nominations for 2017 American Music Awards
With eight nominations including Artist of the Year and Video of the Year, Bruno Mars leads the pack of nominees for this year’s edition of the American Music Awards.
The announcement was made early yesterday by two-time AMA nominee, Ciara as she made an appearance on the Good Morning America show.
Coming closely behind Mars are Drake, Ed Sheeran, Kendrick Lamar and The Chainsmokers who all earned five nominations each.
However, the choice of nominees has been condemned for lack of female representation. Besides those specifically tagged “female”, other categories were mostly dominated by male artistes.
