CNN’s African Voices offers an exclusive interview with Nigerian artist Davido, who describes the creation of his fourth album, “Timeless.” The ‘Fem’ singer has opened up about recording 62 tracks for the album before narrowing it down to the final ten.
Because there were so many great songs to choose from, Davido noted, “It’s the most difficult process.” “Today, you say you want this one, and two weeks later, you’re not feeling it and want a new one,” he explained.
Despite the problems, “Timeless” has been a commercial success since its release on March 31, 2023. It has already shattered the first-week records of Nigeria’s five top streaming platforms, cementing Davido’s status as one of the country’s most popular musicians.
Furthermore, the hitmaker revealed that he had finished enough new material for a new album. Davido has stated that a deluxe edition of ‘Timeless’ would be released and that he will perform songs from the album on April 23, 2023, at Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos. The celebrity guarantees that his show will be an unforgettable experience.
Davido has long been a staple of the Afrobeats genre, with his infectious melodies and emotionally evocative lyrics earning him a global fan following. The artist’s remarkable adaptability and ingenuity are on display on ‘Timeless,’ an album that cements his place as a musical titan. Davido’s light will undoubtedly shine brightly for many years to come, as fans impatiently await the deluxe version of “Timeless” and the superstar’s next project.
