After the release of his hit track “Dami Duro,” Davido went from being an up-and-coming artist to a superstar, and ever since, he has been one of the most well-known musicians in Africa. The DMW frontline performer and owner continues to give in-depth accounts of his sacrifices to advance in his profession as he promotes his most recent album, “Timeless.”
Davido recently discussed how he became interested in music at a young age and the problems it brought with his family in an interview with the podcast “Million Dollaz Worth of Game.” Davido claims that he discontinued his studies at HBSU in Alabama, where he had majored in business. Davido’s father initially opposed his plan to pursue music but eventually agreed to it on the condition that he would complete his studies. In exchange, Davido’s father had a studio built for him in Lagos.
As part of his agreement to stay in school, Davido’s wealthy father built him one of the best studios in the nation, but he could only use it fully once he had finished school. Davido claims that his father made him the best recording studio in Lagos, where superstars like D’banj and Wizkid have recorded in the past. Davido could only visit the studio once every two weeks due to his academics, unlike the superstars who previously frequented there. Even before he finished his education at Bell University, Davido would become a household name.
Davido’s fourth studio album, ‘Timeless,’ released in 2023, smashed numerous African streaming records. He has plans to perform songs from the record and his other notable hits to the expanding global Afrobeats audience while on tour in the US this year.
