President of Dangote groups, Aliko Dangote, has also caught the ‘Gelato’ fever after a video emerged where he was seen enjoying some frozen dessert with friends.
In the undated video, the billionaire businessman can be seen standing in a hallway outside a store with some friends. They all chorus ‘Gelato’ as they enjoy scoops of frozen dessert in their hands.
They are then seen walking away amid hearty laughter.
‘Gelato’ is a popular low-fat frozen dessert of Italian origin but has become an increasingly popular phrase among young Nigerians, with much of the credits to Florence Otedola, a disc jockey better known as DJ Cuppy, who had released a song using the phrase.
DJ Cuppy, daughter of Femi Otedola, another billionaire businessman and friend to Dangote, had teamed up with Zlatan Ibile, a street music crooner, for ‘Gelato’ in August.
The song scaled up to number 3 on the Apple Music chart within a day of release; caused a frenzy among Nigerians on social media; and topped playlist in clubs, radio stations, and occasions across the country.
In July, the talented DJ also shared a video where she and her dad can be seen enjoying some ice-cream on the streets of Italy.
In the video, she said they were in Italy for a few hours just to get the tasty ‘Gelato’.
