Following the death of his parents, Lati worked in the Adeleke household and that’s how he met Davido.

Lati was the one who called Chioma for Davido the first time he saw her

The first time Davido set his eyes on Chioma while they were both undergraduates at Babcock Univerisity, he asked Lati to speak to her on his behalf.

“I was in school for a year before I blew up. That was when I met my wife. I remember the day I saw her. I can never forget it. I was in a Prado, and I looked behind and I saw this girl walking. Just there with her bag, it was Chioma. I told Lati, ‘Omo, I like that girl. Go and call that girl for me.’ He called her but she did not answer me at the time,” said Davido during an interview with YouTuber, Tayo Aina.

Lati was the one who slapped a Davido fan in February 2024

You might have seen a trending video of a fan getting slapped while trying to take a picture with Davido in February this year. The singer’s aide who assaulted the fan was actually Lati. According to reports he has since reached out to the fan to apologise and reportedly compensated him with ₦200,000.

Lati has a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication

Lati graduated from Lagos State University in 2002 with a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication.


Lati is not Davido’s bouncer
