Afrobeat sensation, Davido, known for his chart-topping hits and global presence, has recently shown appreciation for the viral song “Elon Musk” by up-and-coming artist Shallipopi. Currently on tour, a video emerged on social media platforms showcasing Davido in a club setting, energetically singing and grooving to the catchy tune with his entourage.
This reaction from Davido adds to the growing list of endorsements for Shallipopi’s song. Previously, other music giants like Wizkid and Olamide have also expressed their admiration for the track. Such endorsements from industry heavyweights are a significant boost for emerging artists, and in Shallipopi’s case, it seems to be working wonders.
However, the journey hasn’t been entirely smooth for Shallipopi. The artist faced a setback when he was arrested and subsequently released by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Despite the challenges, the popularity of “Elon Musk” seems undeterred, with more celebrities joining the fan bandwagon.
Davido, who recently unveiled the European leg of his “Timeless” world tour, has been in celebratory spirits. He took to social media platforms to share the success of tracks from what many consider one of the standout music projects of 2023. Known for his supportive nature, Davido has consistently backed young talents, both verbally in interviews and through his active social media presence.
In related news, American artist Latto also expressed admiration for Davido’s song “Unavailable,” further highlighting the global appeal of Afrobeat and its artists.
With the music industry’s dynamics constantly evolving, such interactions and endorsements play a crucial role in shaping an artist’s career. As Shallipopi enjoys the limelight, fans eagerly await more collaborations and interactions between established stars and budding talents.
