Davido: Between Paul O and lizard that jumped down from high iroko tree

Davido and Paul O

Popular entertainment entrepreneur, Paul O, is playing the proverbial lizard that jumped down a high iroko tree over the success of ‘Assurance’ singer, Davido.

The lizard says if no one praises him, he will praise himself.

The proverb is among those Chinua Achebe spices his iconic novel, Things Fall Apart, with.

Of course, literary freaks will remember that another proverb from the novel is looking at the king’s mouth, you will think he never sucked his mother’s breast, which also buttresses Paul O’s story.

He has narrated how he helped Davido when things were still dicey for him.

He has to note this after controversial personality, Verydarkman, made uncomplimentary remarks about him and his lover, Iyabo Ojo, during Davido-Chioma wedding festivities last week.

As ‘The Nation’ reports, the talent manager with Paul Okoye as full name, shared a throwback video with Davido, revealing how he tirelessly fought for Davido’s career in the early days.

Despite being rejected six times by a company, Okoye persisted and eventually secured a job for Davido.

He attributed their success to hard work, stating that he wasn’t born with a “golden spoon.”

“Is all about hard work !!! Respect!!! Then Davido have on One song !!! Duro!! I fought for that job for him !! The company says no to me 6x I come back fighting before they say Yes. it is well !!! !!! I’m not born with a golden spoon, it’s just hard work,” he wrote on Instagram.

Davido and his brother, Adewale Adeleke, validated Paulo’s claims in the comment section, with Davido writing “Facts” and Adewale acknowledging Paulo’s significant role in Davido’s career, he wrote: “Yep our first endorsement, MTN was done by you sir. You forever played a major role in David’s story! God bless you”.
