Why I Declined Davido’s Offer to Fund ‘Legbegbe’ Video – Mr Real

Mr Real, the Nigerian singer, has revealed why he rejected Davido’s offer to fund the video shoot for his hit track ‘Legbegbe’.

In a recent episode of the Terms and Conditions podcast, Mr Real said Idowest, his colleague, fabricated stories about him to 30BG, Davido’s crew.

He said Idowest and Obadice, another colleague, visited him at a hotel and told him that Davido was interested in funding their music video.

He added that he had to turn down the offer because he suspected they had “ulterior motives”.

“This guy [Idowest] has gone to 30BG and said something I did not say,” he said in a mixture of pidgin and English.

“Do you know how I found out? That time I was looking for funds for video for ‘Legbegbe’. He and Obadice came that day I was in a hotel and said Davido wanted to shoot ‘Legbegbe’ video for us.

“After they come to talk, I come talk say I no want make anybody shoot the video for me. Say me I dey find money to shoot video and I go soon shoot the video. And the reason why was because I had already seen the green snake, I had already seen the whole thing he was doing.

“On a norm, how Davido go say he want shoot video for me I no go accept? But as a soji guy, me I come look am say una wey wan dey run me street already, una wan come complete am with the video thing wey be say na only one scene I go show.”

In 2018, Mr Real combined with Obadice and Idowest for the release of ‘Legbegbe’.

Last month, he accused Idowest of stealing ‘Legbegbe’ and sabotaging his career.
