The Nigerian Twittersphere has been set abuzz following the arrest of Helen and Susan, two ladies, who claimed Davido, Afropop sensation, impregnated one of them.
A video of the young ladies surfaced online and went viral where one of them claimed the music star got her pregnant.
In a swift reaction, the ‘Risky’ crooner threatened to slam a N30 billion lawsuit on them for ‘defamation of character’.
The ladies would later share a video where they explained it was just a “prank” and form of congratulatory message to the talented singer on the delivery of his son with Chioma, his much-acclaimed girlfriend.
This did nothing to abate Davido’s wrath who took to social media to place a N1 million bounty on the ladies, asking anyone with information about them to come forward and get the cash.
In a new video shared on Tuesday, the ladies can be seen handcuffed to each other by Special Spech, Davido’s hypeman and it has gotten people talking on social media platforms especially Twitter.
“You use your phone and mobile data to put yourself in trouble all because of clout! We are humans with feelings, not everyone you speak ill about online will let it slide….. Stop unnecessary clout chasing, it will not help you. Davido dishing out some lessons,” a Twitter user said.
“I hear Helen and Sandra who allegedly defamed Davido have now been arrested. A lesson for all, don’t play stupid pranks,” another user said.
Here is what some Nigerians had to say:

People that are saying Davido went too far should be gathered and put in cells close to the girls'

Davido is well within his rights to get those ladies arrested. Because you have social media and data doesn’t mean you should be stupid; falsely accusing or defaming people.
I hope this serves as a deterrent to those clout chasers. NOT EVERYTHING IS A JOKE! DON’T BE UNFORTUNATE!

He shouldn't release them since he has money to waste. Fundamental Rights enforcement coming soon. D ladies were wrong but not criminally. Imagine Buhari doing this, can u now see some of your celebrities are hypocrites #Davido

The handcuffs are very unnecessary haba…Maybe @PoliceNG should educate us on when handcuffs should be used.
The person recording also…hahaha
Davido u have shown them say dem be nobody..
Lessons learnt is that stupid pranks should stop…
Always stay safe.

Defamation is a "tort" (a civil wrong, rather than a criminal wrong).
You sue. and pursue the case in court. You don't pay police to put people in cuffs & treat them like thieves.
But dear Nigerians, keep laughing & mocking until it's your turn to be opressed by the rich.

This is not oppression dear,do not twist it…what if davido and chioma already started having issues before they realized it was a prank?be honest to yourself,before you knew it was a prank,were you not convinced?

In the end Helen and Sandra got the clout they were chasing. Davido caught them and taught them a lesson. Everybody wins. 😅 https://t.co/aG0OZC5rXL
