On Davido's decision to venture into music. He says: "I’ve been doing music for like 1 year but I took it seriously in March 2011.

"I was formerly in a group called KB international in America. It wasn’t working out so I thought I should just do this on my own that was when I moved back to Nigeria. I was around people that were musically inclined. I love music, and why not do something you love and are happy doing and making money at the same time".

The American-born Nigerian recording artist as of December 2017, has received a total of 109 awards from 110 nominations.

He does Afropop and Afrobeat genres of music. Davido is a fortunate child who discovered his love for music early enough and decided despite all odds to push it and now he is one of the brightest artist making Nigeria Proud nationally and internationally. Assurance is a love song done for Chioma who happens to be Davido's girlfriend and lover. He calls her his sister in this song. A little look into Chioma will give us more Expo to why she is so unique don't you think?.

Chioma Avril Roland is Davido’s new girlfriend that he is currently spoiling with money. The beautiful lady who turned 23 two days ago is a 300 Level student at Babcock University. Chioma is originally from the Eastern part of Nigeria, Imo State precisely (IGBO Tribe). Before the fame, she was fairly known by few people as a chef who makes delicious meals which she showcases on her Instagram page.

Davido Aka OBO Nigerian super star has revealed his girlfriend (Chioma) is the best thing that happened to him.She is his best lover. So Davido revealed to the public. According to report Davido has been dating chioma for five years now. Chioma Avril Rowland was born On April 1st 1995 to a royal family of Avril Rowland. We found out that Chioma was disowned by her parents after she dropped out of school. Insider revealed that Chioma and Davido first met at Babcook University when Davido was still studying at the institution as at then.

She celebrated her 23rd Birthday in a grand style as Davido and her posted photos of the new Porsche worth N22million he bought for her to mark that special day. The heart blowing part is that the car came with a plate number that reads Assurance. Chioma Avril Rowland we can say is Queen Of Davido’s 30 Billion Gang. From all indications, it is very obvious that Davido has finally found the woman of his dreams and he is not shy to show her off on his social media account.

Davido can’t get enough of his girlfriend, he keeps gushing about her every now and then. Some would ask if Assurance is Davido's overhyped song to Chioma or a mega love song. Whichever way the fortunate children speaking of Davido and Chioma and his fans loves it. We all know 2017 was Davido’s year, as his monster hits “If“, “Fall“, “Fia” and “Like Dat” all dominated our airwaves.

Now, following his first single of 2018, “Flora My Flawa” and a bunch of strong features, Davido just released "Assurance“ and it is a major hit. With a catchy sample of popular nollywood actor Osita Iheme aka Paw Paw’s “Biggie Biggie” as the pre-chorus, the song manages to grasp you within seconds and keep you interested and longing for more throughout its duration. In normal Davido fashion, there’s not much lyrical range, however, the catchy rhymes and the sombre beat work well together. On the song, he declares his feelings for his significant other “Chioma”, He sings:

“You’re the one I want oh/Before my liver start to fail/You’re the one I need oh”.

While the song is nice, much like “Flora My Flowa“, it’s certainly not as strong as “Fia” or “Like Dat“. We really hope Davido didn’t exhaust all his monster hits last year lol. Anyway, considering the song was only created to celebrate his girlfriend’s birthday, we won’t judge it too harshly. Yah we will call it their love business. Davido and Chioma are in love and he wants the world to know just that. The video saw natural island vibes between these lovebirds in Barbados.

The Video was directed by Meji Alabi of JM Films and produced by SperoachBeatz. On producing Assurance for Davido he says:

''I made this beat in one hour, the idea and everything came up in less than one hour and I played it for Peruzzi, who took it to Davido and immediately he came in and jumped on it. ''To be very honest, when I was making this beat, the only person in Africa that came to my mind was Davido, I knew he would do justice to it. This song actually changed my life, like the kind of people that write me, big music heads who now call me to work with me, and the production fee self has increased oh, I can''t lie.''.

Good for him we can say he is lucky to be involved in this project. Davido sure had a helluva time with his current girlfriend, Chioma – the singer seems to want to make her day memorable especially by this unique music video shoot. We have heard so much love tales, love stories from this song. Promise of assurance, promise of pepper (money) that makes love sweeter, promise of love and much more. Assurance is already making the waves and we love it. Accolades to Davido on this one.
