You know who Igwe Tupac should give some accolades right now? Davido, Davido actually deserves some accolades *imaginary hype man ad-libs: Accolades!*
Davido broke into the music scene with his first single Dami Duro in 2011 and hasn’t looked backed since. With a hit single every year since then, Davido has gone on an 8-year run of hits. Probably one of the hardest workers the Nigerian music industry has seen, Davido doesn’t know how to stop.
That’s not even the best part, the best part is that he is true to himself and tries to help all those people around him. One may or may not agree on the level of talent his cousins Bred and Sina Rambo have, but Davido has always helped push their songs by promoting or featuring on their songs. Who else signs an artist (Mayorkun) off seeing a cover of his song in a tweet. Davido understands the music business and what he lacks in singing skills, he makes up for by hiring the best songwriters and signing the best producers.
Despite coming from a privileged background, he hasn’t let that stop his hustle. Davido is constantly reinventing himself and investing in the people around him.
He called on all artistes to help people around them as he received his Headies award for the Best Pop Single and Song of the Year categories.
He said: “There is something I use every morning when I wake up… we rise by lifting others. Everybody on this stage, it is not like they are random people. I have helped them. I can’t wake up everyday knowing that people have problems in this Nigeria. Anything I can do, I fit do. I want to call out all the artistes, una get money, anything wey una fit do for people, make you do am. It will not cost you anything.”
Just recently he bought his girlfriend a Porsche and got her her own cooking show. Talk about ‘Assurance’. With an Infinix phone deal sealed and his own private jet on the way to Nigeria, Davido is about to take it to another level.
