Nigerian singer and DMW boss Davido is one who needs little or no introduction in the music industry. The O.B.O crooner, made news yesterday after he took to his IG page to call out a music video director who said into his DM to beg the singer for a job.
Not one to forget, Davido slammed the music director reminding him of a time he once referred to him as talent-less.
Despite not living up to his glory in 2016 with his Son Of Mercy EP, Davido came back strong in 2017 dropping four major hit songs; “If”, “Fia”, “Fall” and “Like Dat”, to the delight of his fans.
The singer who hit the limelight back in 2011 with his single Dami Duro has since then continued to drop hit songs and yes, today we will be talking about 3 of his songs we just love.
This record wasted no time in swooping many off their feets upon its release in February of 2017. Since its release, If has gone on to amass more than 4 million streams on Spotify and 62.8 million YouTube views since then.
If was so huge American singer and R&B legend R.Kelly, dropped his own version of the track.
Davido went on to snag several awards with this one song to include ‘Best Worldwide Act MTV EMA, Best African Act at the same award show. Artist of the Year and Song of the Year at the AFRIMMA Awards, Hottest Song of the Year, Afropop Male Act of the Year (NEA Awards) and Best African Act 2017, MOBO Awards.’
Released in 2017, FIA went on to become an instant hit garnering millions of fans for the singer across the globe. The song, which went on to amass more than 44million YouTube views since it’s release Fia was also released during the period, the singer’s friends were all dying in mysterious circumstances, deaths he was somehow blamed for. The DMW boss as expected addressed these allegations in this song which has since become a lot of peoples personal favorite.
