2017 was a big year for Nigerian afropop artiste Davido in terms of career success but it was also a bad year as he mysteriously lost several friends of his, most notably DJ Olu, under strange circumstances. After news of DJ Olu broke out on the internet and events leading to his death were explained, people began to point accusing fingers at Davido for having a hand in the death of his longtime friend. The accusations stemmed from the fact that Davido was the last person DJ Olu had contact with, in a club before the young man was rushed to hospital after what was suspected to be poisoning. Even though no evidence indicated that Davido was responsible for the death of his friend, he was seen as the prime suspect by the public with many accusing him of perhaps using his friend for some ritual sacrifice. The public’s accusations of Davido was largely due to the fact that he had lost some friends to death in that same year in the lead up to DJ Olu’s death, which somehow raised eyebrows. The public outcry left the Nigerian police with no other choice than to invite the young singer for questioning, after which the police concluded that Davido had no hand in the death of DJ Olu. DJ Olu died under strange circumstances after complaining of stomach ache while in a nightclub with Davido and his entourage. He was rushed to a hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival. However till this day, Davido insist he was not in the club when his friend started complaining of the stomach ache. According to him, he had already left his friend in the club and was heading to a party somewhere before the incident took place. Though Davido did not kill him, he died because they were friends. DJ Olu wouldn’t have been at the nightclub with Davido if they weren’t friends.
Baby Jet as he is fondly called has had his fair share of blame for a friend’s death. The Ghanaian football superstar was accused of knowing something about the death of his friend and highlife artiste, Castro when the talented artiste mysteriously got lost on the Ada Estuary in 2013. Castro had visited Ada together with Asamoah Gyan and Baffour Gyan to go and have some good time at the beautiful beaches and hotels in Ada. But days later, news hit the nation that Castro together with an unidentified lady had gone missing on the Ada Estuary after taking off in a jet ski. The news shook the nation and people began to look at Asamoah Gyan for answers which weren’t forthcoming. The conspiracy theorists also accused him of probably having a hand in the drowning of his friend on the Estuary, using him as a sacrifice to better his fortunes. Ace Lawyer, Maurice Ampaw did not help matters when he also came out insisting that Asomoah Gyan should be invited by the police for serious interrogation because he suspects Gyan was hiding something on Castro’s disappearance. Though Asamoah Gyan did not kill Castro or kidnap him, Castro cannot be found today because Asamoah Gyan was friend. If they weren’t friends, Castro would have been somewhere else instead on riding a Jet Ski at that moment.
