Chioma Avril Rowland Biography, Net Worth, Profile and Fun Facts

Chioma Avril Rowland more popularly referred to as Chioma or Chef Chi, (born 1st April 1995) is a chef, model and the girlfriend to popular Nigerian musician David Adeleke whose professional name is Davido. Chioma hails from Imo State, southeast Nigeria, from a family of Seventh-day Adventists and she has a sister by the name of Jennifer, who is a fashion designer. Chioma was a 300 level student of Babcock University who was allegedly disowned by her parents for quitting her education.


Chioma came to full glare in 2018 when she was reportedly gifted a Porsche valued at N45 million on her 23rd birthday by her musician lover. The news of the birthday gift went viral and trended for over a week. A week later, the musician released his anticipated ‘Assurance’ single where he talked about gifting his ‘baby assurance’, supposedly the N45 million Porsche. It would be the official sealing of their relationship from there on out.


At the Babcock University, she was a student of Economics and was in her third year when she allegedly ditched her education to travel the world and live with her celebrity boyfriend; something which did not go down well with her parents who reportedly disowned her. Over a year since she ditched her education, she is yet to graduate from the private University and seems to have given up on completing her education.

Chioma and Davido met at Babcock University as Davido was a student of the same, in the Department of Music. It turned out that the two have known each other for over five years. Davido has had a thing going on with Chioma even before he met his baby mamas.

On September 3rd, 2019, Chioma and Davido took their relationship a step further as they had their introduction; the formal meeting between parents which often heralds a wedding in the Nigerian tradition. So we are expecting to hear the wedding bells in 2020 if all things go well.
