Habeeb Uthman, aka Obama DMW, was a dyed-in-the-wool Davido loyalist. He was never tired of talking about the singer and amplifying his good deeds. Always boisterous and full of life, not a few were shocked when it was reported that he passed away on Wednesday, June 30, 2021. He was said to have complained of breathing difficulty and had driven himself to the Evercare Hospital in Lekki, Lagos.
About six months ago, precisely on December 8, 2020, Davido’s erstwhile bodyguard, Tijani Olamilekan, aka Teejay, died after what was described as a brief illness.
Mourning Teejay who had worked with him since the early days of his career, Davido wrote, “Please tell me I am dreaming.
My TJ gone? What would I do without you, uncle TJ.
(For) 11 years, you did all for me. Put me before you at all times… You were such a big person with a baby heart. Everyone loved you. I want to wake up late for a show so you’d come and carry me again. I don’t even know what I’m typing. RIP uncle Tijani.”
Sources claimed that Teejay had been battling with diabetes before he eventually succumbed to the cold hands of death.
