Sources close to the deceased also claim that he spent the afternoon in Davido’s house a few hours before his party.
Davido himself has termed the allegations as not true in a series on posts on his snapchat account.
“I was deeply saddened to hear of the sudden death of my friend Tagbo. First and foremost, my sincere condolences and prayers are with his family at this time. I’ve been in the same position before, multiple times and also recent.” Davido wrote.
