Davido, a prominent Nigerian music sensation, has explained why he is known as the ‘King of Afrobeats’ in Nigeria.
Davido revealed this during an interview, emphasizing his tremendous impact on the African music world.
On a crisp October 21st, the DMW Bigwig lighted up his Instagram, giving out a sizzling video capturing his recent sit-down with ABC News, where he painted a vivid picture of the Afrobeats genre’s international appeal.
When proclaimed “King of Afrobeats” in the video, Davido happily remarked, “It’s a taste of hard-earned glory, a sweet fruit of patience, and a journey that began during my salad days.”
He asserted boldly that he has won respect and acclaim throughout the Western Hemisphere.
When asked about his music and lifestyle, the OBO Crooner stated that, while the majority of his songs march to the beat of African culture, his lifestyle and love of partying correspond with Western sensibilities.
During his early years, he was influenced by Nigerian music trailblazers such as 2face, Psquare, and D’banj, while also listening to American rappers such as 50 Cent, Ja Rule, Nelly, and Ludacris.
Davido, on the other hand, remarked that while in college, he made the life-changing decision to return to his Nigerian roots and embark on the booming Afrobeats bandwagon.
He captioned the post as follows:
“Seeing the way Afrobeats has changed the world and the impact we’ve had in music is beautiful! To see how respected and cherished our culture has become makes me so proud. Let’s make sure we protect it and keep building a borderless music world @abcnevws”
