Has Quavo Been – A Nigerian Man All Along?
Last week, American rappers Quavious Keyate Marshall also known as Quavo and Diamonté Quiava Valentin Harper popularly eferred to as Saweetie reportedly broke off their relationship.
The relationship which had lasted three years was called off on social media right before our eyes when Saweetie took to social media to post this: “I’m single. I’ve endured too much betrayal and hurt behind the scenes for a false narrative to be circulating that degrades my character. Presents don’t band-aid scars and the love isn’t real when the intimacy is given to other women,” which strongly suggested that Quavo had cheated on her. Quavo would go on to respond with a tweet saying “I had love for you and disappointed you did all that. You are not the woman I thought you were. I wish you nothing but the best.”
A relationship that started with Quavo sliding into Saweetie’s Instagram DM with a snowflake emoji back in 2018 and caused an instant classic “God, when?” moment for romantics all over the internet had been seemingly strong until the public breakup and the infidelity claims.
Of course, this started a debate on social media with Nigerians picking sides as the story unfolded. Just like every other gender war on Twitter, some of the women picked up the “men are scum” rhetoric whilst the men could only settle for a defensive rebuttal in “we don’t know the full story yet.” This went on for hours until someone tweeted suggesting Quavo take back the Bentley he got for Saweetie as an early Christmas present only last year. This singular tweet took the conversation to a whole new level as Nigerian women came out enmasse.
“You think he’s a Nigerian man?” The women responded to imply that only Nigerian men were capable of such petty deeds.
In a sharp twist of events, within less than 12 hours of women dragging Nigerian men through the mud, reports surfaced that
Quavo had ordered for the Bentley to be repossessed. The report sparked the beginning of a relentless gloat session across social media implying that perhaps, OgheneQuavo was a Nigerian man all along.
Reports, however, have surfaced online that Quavo did not send people over to Saweetie’s to repossess the Bentley disregarding the initial report to be a rumour but it was too little too late to stop the banter. It is still unclear how both parties will handle the breakup and life after it but we know for a fact that if Saweetie has to cry, she can do that from her private jet.
