One of Naija’s Afrobeats stars Davido lost his Personal Assistant and Road Manager, Habeeb Uthman popularly known as Obama DMW who reportedly passed on Wednesday as a result of suspected heart failure after he mentioned having difficulty breathing. Obama DMW died at Ever-Care Hospital, Lekki. According to a source, he drove himself to the hospital and was admitted in for treatment, but couldn’t make it. Also, according to popular music act, Peruzzi they were all together in the studio on Tuesday with Davido before he travelled. He also mentioned that Obama had rice and afterwards left for home at 2 am and was complaining about difficulty in breathing. Obama is one of the most popular figures in the entertainment industry. He is the founder/CEO of Obama Music Worldwide (OMW). He is also affiliated with the Davido Music Worldwide family and 30 billion gang. Habeeb Uthman started managing upcoming artistes while still in the higher institution. He, in fact, was already organising music shows as an undergraduate. Obama DMW completed his elementary and secondary school in top private schools in Lagos. He bagged a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Lagos. After completing his university education, Obama DMW emigrated to Canada to pursue greener pastures. While in the country, he studied artiste management. When he returned back to Nigeria, he co-founded a recorded label with his friend. The label was called, Holla At Your Boy. But the label folded up after the death of his partner then he decided to open his own label Obama music worldwide. Obama DMW was born to the illustrious family of Uthman in the late 80s. He was bred in the commercial city of Lagos. Over the years, Obama DMW has grown to be one of Davido’s key men and he is a high ranking member of the 30 billion gang family. Obama who has a full grown-up son called Abdul Maleek Uthman took to social media to post a photo which he captioned: “Dad, I won’t immortalize you in the stars, because they will fade away. I won’t remember you with a poem, for it will be forgotten one day. I will just keep you safe in my heart so that you are with me in every way. I miss you”.
Obama was one of those who controlled access to the music star. OMW is closely affiliated with DMW. Obama DMW was one of the most eligible bachelors in the industry. He was not married and has flaunted no girlfriend. This was because he was a very successful and handsome man who preferred to keep his relationship low key. He was in a hidden relationship with Tiwa Savage and she was reportedly pregnant with his child at a point, and the pictures of the baby bump went viral on the internet. It was also revealed she lost the pregnancy. Obama and Tiwa Savage had a wonderful relationship. They travelled together and had a lot of fun times together. They planned a lot of things together, Obama who was meant to take over Tiwa’s management but because he didn’t want the media knowing about their intimate relationship slowed things down. The death of Obama made Tiwa Savage really sad and this is evident in her special tribute to him. She took to social media and penned down a heart-touching note with videos of him while he was strong and healthy, she wrote; Braveheart, strong heart, soft heart, kind heart, pure heart, peacemaker, hot stepper, incoming politician, I know you’d want me to add “stylish” to this list but umm yeah lol.

Even though their moments in love was not showed on Instagram it was displayed on private snap where only their close friends could see. The relationship was going good and fair until Tiwa lost the pregnancy, even tho social media fans were not happy about Tiwa’s decision of lover, she was really not concerned about that. She followed her mind. It was said that Davido’s Hypeman, Edward Chukuma Ijah, well known as special speech hooked Tiwa to Obama DMW. And they remained inseparable until his untimely death.
