DMW maybe heading to serious crisis and probably in shambles as Nigeria pop super star Davido seems to have lost grips of his gang members in the on-going bitter battle between two of Davido’s crew members as the singer’s hype man and road manager are at loggerheads. Going by the looks of things, this is a battle of supremacy.
Hypeman, Special Spesh and his ‘Road manager’, Don Obama have decided to call each other out on social media and the issue leading to this is yet to be known. The duo took to snapchat to throw shades, as they both sent deadly messages to each other. Some say it is for supremacy.
It started from Don Obama’s storyline and Special Spesh replied. We wonder on whose side Davido will fall to.

Since those lyrics were sung, they have developed a life of their own with a fashion line emerging and it’s becoming a certified street slang. It has also become a way of identifying the members of Davido’s crew. That is the closest friends he hangs out with in the music industry. These guys are the official members of the 30 billion gang.
There has been so many controversies surrounding the Gang leader himself, in May 2014, Davido attacked the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) after missing his flight to London. He accused them of pestering him for money. On May 11, 2014, the Public Relations Officer for the NIS denied Davido’s allegations and said that they didn’t issue him an exit permit because he didn’t have the proper travel documents with him at the time.
In December 2015, the Vanguard reported that Davido and his baby’s mother, Sophia Momodu, were embroiled in a fight over the custody of their daughter Imade Adeleke. The newspaper reported that it all started after Sophie and her family filed a petition against Davido and his family for alleged child trafficking.
In a petition sent to the Director-General of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, Davido and his family were accused of keeping Imade away from her mother, as well as trying to flee Nigeria with the baby. Davido has since insisted that the allegations against him are false, but apologized to Dele Momodu, the cousin of Sophia Momodu
