Davido considers copyrighting ”E Choke”, gives reason
International music star, David Adeleke also known as Davido has declared his intention to copyright a slang he recently coined.
The singer had created ”E Choke”, a phrase used in expressing reactions to a variety of situations from a win, to disappointment, and even as a form of commendation.
Since he popularized it, many fans and entertainers have been using E Choke in different situations, and it got to a point that Burna Boy and Wizkid, two of the top counterparts in the industry re-phrased it in a manner that many saw it as a diss.
Burna Boy who won Best Global Album at the 63rd edition of the Grammys, while celebrating with friends, changed E Choke to E Hang. And only recently, a video of Wiz linking up with Bella Shmurda stirred reactions after he was heard in a video saying E Don Spoil which was interpreted to be his own version.
