The E Choke Emoji was created by Twitter, an American microblogging and social networking site, to represent the catchphrase “e choke” popularized by Nigerian singer Davido.
Davido introduced the slang term “e choke” a few months ago, which his fans use to convey surprise, shock, or wonder.
When Davido fans use the slang with a hashtag on Twitter, they now get an emoji of the singer keeping his neck.
Davido reacted to the news by thanking Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for endorsing the “e choke” slang with an emoji.
“Even @jack know say #echoke,” the father of three said.
During a studio session with his colleague, Bella Shmurda, Nigerian superstar Wizkid developed his own slang “E Don Spoil,” according to KanyiDaily.
