Jodeci’s Mr. Dalvin Reveals K-Ci Once Did The Worse To Him That Could’ve Cost Him His Life

Posted On : May 6, 2018

These younger R&B cats out here today, who thing they’re bad boys, ain’t got NOTHING on some of these REAL R&B singers from the 90’s and back! Jodeci is a direct example of that! Mr. Dalvin revealed that his fellow Jodeci brother, K-Ci did the unthinkable to him back in the day. It could have cost Dalvin his life and you won’t believe WHY…or better yet, we are talking about take-no-mess K-Ci, so maybe you will…


<h2>DETAILS WHY JODECI MEMBER, K-Ci, ALMOST SHOT HIM” width=”634″ height=”420″ /></a><br />
Dalvin revealed to <a href=SoulCulture, that before he and his brother/Jodeci member, Devante Swing, met K-Ci and Jojo, they were each doing their own thing in two separate gospel groups in North Carolina. But boy! The day he and Devante met K-Ci and JoJo at 14 and 16 years old, it was CHAOS:

“We’re all from Charlotte, North Carolina and we met there […]we met some of the girls from UNITY [a local gospel group] and their names were Barbara Jean and Poo-Poo. […] Poo-Poo was dating K-Ci before we even met. Barbara Jean would always tell us that we need to meet K-Ci and Jojo. We heard about them before, but we hadn’t met them yet…”

Dalvin continued:

“Barbara Jean and Poo-Poo took us to meet them [K-Ci and JoJo] one day. They had a little gospel studio joint and next thing I knew K-Ci pulled a gun out on me because he thought I was messing around with Poo-Poo. I told him, ‘Man, are you serious?’ My brother was actually dating her sister, Barbara Jean. So when we got there and this happened I told my brother these dudes are crazy and that I was leaving.”

The visual on this is crazy and since nobody was hurt, it’s actually kind of funny: The thought of K-Ci, who was a gospel singer mind you, being strapped with a 9 milli (or whatever type of gun he pulled) at just 16 years old is wild! Since when have you heard of a teenaged Kirk Franklin pulling a gun on somebody? LOL. It’s a good thing Jodeci decided to switch genres. Moving on…



After the dust settled, the music prevailed and brought Dalvin and K-Ci back together again:

“I left and D [Devante] stayed there with them [at the studio with K-Ci and Jo-Jo]. He would keep on telling me that they were writing songs and he wanted me to come back to start working with them. I ended up coming back and a couple of months later we formed the group.”

And the rest is history and I’m SO glad they settled their beef because R&B wouldn’t have been the same without Jodeci!
