Boy Spyce has seemingly dodged a bullet as he was recently compared to Davido. But, of course, it’s not new for Netizens to set up upcoming artists with comparisons to their more accomplished colleagues, and this won’t be the last either. Ayra Starr saw the same fate when she was compared to Beyonce weeks ago.
Mavins’s rising singer Ugbekile David Osemeke, known professionally as Boy Spyce, reprimanded his fans for comparing and placing him at the level of famous Afrobeat Legend David Adeleke, often known as Davido.
Coming back from his much-needed hiatus, In a tweet, Davido thanked his followers for the tremendous support he has received as he prepares to release his long-awaited new album, “TIMELESS.” March 31. Commenting on Davido’s post, an overzealous Spyce fan with a Twitter account @Lonerszn30 implied that Mavin’s acts are now bigger than OBO in the industry after his social media hiatus.
“Boy Spyce is now bigger than you.”
Responding to such a bogus comment, Spyce hinted that @Lonerszn30 was talking under the influence of “hard drugs” and urged him to stop using dangerous substances while pointing out that Davido was his mentor.
Boy Spyce responded with the comment:
“Stay away from hard drugs, please. Na my Idolo be that.”
Osemeke started his music career by covering and posting popular songs on social media. The most successful was the cover of “Essence” by Wizkid. It drew attention to Mavin Records CEO Don Jazzy, who signed him to the label. On April 23, 2022, Osemeke released her debut EP, self-titled “Boy Spyce.” In addition, he is one of the lead vocalists on Mavin Records’ 10th anniversary single, “Won Da Mo.” His verse is among the most popular among fans.
