The founder of DMW Records is seen in an online video singing one of his famous songs while the crowd yells Wizkid’s name. The “FEM” crooner was forced to reprimand them immediately because this infuriated him, though he did so in a light manner. While on stage, Davido told the audience to stop yelling Wiz’s name. Davido explained that he wanted the crowd to focus on the performance and enjoy the music rather than getting caught up in an artist rivalry. He emphasized that he respects Wizkid’s talent but urged everyone to appreciate each artist individually.

Recall that Davido recently sparked debate when he claimed that he and Wizkid were the first young musicians to find this much success abroad while pushing the boundaries of afrobeats. He asserted that this is common knowledge and expressed his delight at “new cats” taking the lead in the music business. As the “new cats” who followed him and Wizkid, Davido grouped Burna Boy, Rema, Fireboy, Mayorkun, and Asake. The music executive said this in an interview that trended on social media.

He said;

Everybody knows that I was one of the first, Wizkid and I were the first young artistes to blow up and it feels good seeing new cats like Burna Boy, Rema, Fireboy, Mayorkun. You know a lot of new cats coming, killing it…Asake who was on my album. So, yes, I think the future of Afrobeat is in good hands.
