His tweet reads this: Davido u are father, a mentor & a public figure so u ought to be a beacon of hope by living an exemplary life. “E ch¤ke” is a negat!ve statement but a lot of people are being m!sled cos they believe it’s a slang. Words are powerful, they manifest so be mindful what u encourage.
