Veteran Nigerian singer David Adedeji Adeleke simply known as Davido is the originator of these slogans E Choke and Who Dey Breet but it could have different meaning in English.
Who dey breet?
While it could be hard to get the meanings to this slang, Davido first used it on Sunday, March 14, hours after Wizkid and Burna Boy clinched their Grammy awards. It literally means “who is breathing?”

Who Dey Breet means Who is showing himself/herself like to know the person that’s speaking, taking front role for others.
Popular Nigerian musician, Davido, influenced the words. While they could mean different things, “e choke” could be used when something turns out amazingly well. The singer said he is considering copywriting the slogan.
Gotta get ‘e choke’ copyrighted it’s getting outta hand

E Choke some time could means passing through a tough time as this slang doesn’t have one meaning but depends on how you use it. E Choke can also mean not having the ability to do something, or not be able to answer a question throw at you.
