A snippet capturing a day in the life of Davido, an internationally renowned Afrobeat singer, has gained significant attention, generating controversy with his confident claim that his latest album has achieved the highest debut chart position ever. In an interview with popular YouTuber Tayo Aina, the leader of DMW (Davido Music Worldwide) disclosed that he skyrocketed to fame in the industry as a young prodigy of just 17 years old, with his debut single “Back When” featuring the esteemed rap titan of that time, Naeto C. From that pivotal moment onward, Davido began showcasing his talents far and wide, leveraging his prowess as an engineer capable of producing beats.
During the course of the interview, Davido is spotted wearing the Outterspace Flora T-shirt as he humorously recounts an anecdote about his initial encounter with Don Jazzy, remarking that he initially mistook him for Jesus. The story unfolded when Davido’s cousin, Special, was working with Don Jazzy’s MoHits, playing a crucial role in facilitating Davido’s introduction to the Mo’Hits crew. This fortuitous meeting eventually led to Don Jazzy becoming his mentor.
Davido’s genuine connection with his fans is unmistakable. He delved into his teenage years, reminiscing about his pursuit of bringing happiness to people, which seamlessly transitioned into his influential music career. The singer also provided insights into his tireless work ethic, emphasizing that he often finds himself in the recording studio during the late hours when most people are fast asleep.
