David Adeleke, also known as Davido, and Ayodeji Ibrahim Balgun, also known as Wizkid, have confirmed intentions to embark on a world tour together and release a collaborative album. Fans are surprised by the artists’ announcement, as many believed the two were at odds.
After a hiatus from the music industry, Davido has just released his highly anticipated studio album “Timeless.” Wizkid had previously announced a joint tour with Davido following his own “More Love, Less Ego” tour. In a recent interview with BEAT FM, Davido confirmed Wizkid’s announcement. Davido stated that the collaborative tour would occur after his ‘Timeless’ tour, which is scheduled for this year, concludes.
Davido also disclosed that his relationship with Wizkid has significantly improved since losing his son, with Wizkid checking up on him weekly. In the same interview, Davido suggested that the two superstars would soon release a joint album. “I believe that Wizkid and I will collaborate on a record next year. “Shout out to my brother, who calls me weekly to see how I’m doing,” he said.
Wizkid has also shown support for Davido’s album ‘Timeless’ via social media, which has surprised fans given that both artists and Burna Boy are regarded as the most popular in Nigeria today. The rivalry between the admirers of the two artists has lasted for years, but this latest development indicates that Davido and Wizkid’s relationship has evolved.
The new album ‘Timeless’ by Davido features Nigerian artists such as The Cavemen, Fave, Asake, Morravey, Logos Olori, and DMW’s most recent additions. The album also features international artists such as Angelique Kidjo, Skepta, Musa Keys, and Dexta Daps.
Fans of both superstars are enthusiastic about the possibility of a collaboration and joint tour, anxiously anticipating the blending of the artists’ distinctive styles. The tour is anticipated to occur in 2024, after Davido’s ‘Timeless’ tour concludes.
