Israel ‘DMW’ Afeare, Davido’s logistics manager, has recounted how Dele Momodu, the publisher of Ovation Magazine, once accused of him of stealing his phone.


In a post on Davido’s Instagram story, Afeare narrated the experience to the singer and his friends much to their amusement.

Israel said he met Momodu for the first time at the birthday party of Aliko Dangote, the billionaire businessman, in 2007.

He said Momodu noticed his phone had been stolen and immediately accused him of stealing the gadget.


Israel also said the celebrity journalist took him somewhere private where he conducted a thorough search on him. He added that the phone was not found on him.

Isreal said due to the allegation, the journalist handed him money and apologised for wrongfully accusing him.

To prove that he wasn’t making up the story, Israel put a call through to Momodu in the presence of those he was narrating the incident to.


“I’m remembering how we met in 2007 at Aliko Dangote’s party. That your phone was stolen and you thought I was the one that took your phone,” he said on the call.

“So when we boarded the same flight back to Lagos, you said that I should enter your vehicle and the next thing, you took to one place to go and search if I was the one that took your phone.”

In June, Afeare held his introduction ceremony in Benin ahead of his marriage to his fiancée.
